150 Million Hot Dogs…

Not quite hot dogs, but the best I could find in my photo archive!

150 million… that’s how many hot dogs will be consumed tomorrow as part of US Independence Day celebrations; along with 190 million pounds of beef and 700 million pounds of chicken and 500 million gallons of ice cream.

    • The stats definitely say 500 million. That’s around 1.5 gallons per person – does seem a lot!

  1. And some will be consumed at my house! It will only be me and my 86 year old mom but we are having grilled hot dogs and other picnic fixin’s to celebrate. It doesn’t seem like the 4th of July without a hot dog or two.


  2. Flag displaying in Australia can be seen by some as nationalism not patriotism. A little like your confederate flag, it has been unfortunately hijacked by bigots. It is tainted by containing the English Union Jack. Have a great holiday.


  3. Wow… those statistics are quite something… Most astounding is the large number of Americans owning the flag. I don’t think they do that in India!
