You might eat one of these on the Fourth


funny word of the day: wiener


In honor of the Fourth of July, I thought I'd pick a word that signifies what will be cooking on grills all over America. Yes, it can also mean a male body part but that's not why I selected it on our country's day of independence. Hot dog, frankfurter, dawg, call it what you may. But there's nothing better at a summer cookout than a charbroiled wiener on a toasted bun with mustard and sauerkraut. Yum.

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

also wei·ner \ˈwē-nər, ˈwē-nē also ˈwi-nē\
