    Watch the Making of the World's Most Expensive Hot Dog

    Here's a video of the making of the world's most expensive hot dog, which, at $80, "is deep fried and rolled in truffle oil, then coated with porcini dust, sprinkled with white truffle shavings, and topped with dollops of creme fraiche, caviar and fresh roe." Because there's nothing better than sitting in record heat, watching baseball, and eating a bunch of caviar.

    The hot dog was created as a stunt for the Brockton Rox, a Massachusetts Can-Am League baseball team, and will be sold at their ballpark for the rest of the season.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidWhat did he say? Eighty dollars?
    That's nearly two weeks of groceries for me. Insane.
    And look at how he changed his gloves twice just to make one hotdog. That is such an unnecessary waste of latex/rubber tossed into the environment.

    This is the umpteenth time I've seen the headline grabber WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE *INSERT FOOD ITEM* and always, invariably, it's something they just loaded with truffles, which is where 99% of its expense comes from. Except for that one time where it was a drink and it wax expensive because they put a diamond in it.

    it never ceases to amaze me the lengths to which wealthy people will go to spit in the face of starving children.

    Underneath all the bougie toppings it's still a hot dog. So you're still eating pig anus and all the other parts that the butcher couldn't sell.

    Starving children are not in need of Truffle Oil and caviar.

    It is none-the-less a stupid creation done for publicity. It is a safe bet that NO one in Brockton, or anywhere else, will be rushing to the 80.00 hotdog counter.

    We have a term for the type people who buy this sort of thing (and $99 square watermelons; or Poliane bread for $99.98 (see pictures below). They are referred to as "people with more money than brains". The marketing world sees the sort of people, who pay those prices, as cash cows and it helps keep the prices on other items lower for the rest of us icon_biggrin.gif
