THE HOT DOG.
People of different countries have their own favourite food. You already know some things about traditional Russian and English dishes. Here are some facts about a thing that has become popular all over the world.
Have you ever eaten hot dogs? Do you like them?
Hot dogs came to Russia from America but its home country is Germany. In its home country people call this food frankfurture, after Frankfurt, a German city. Frankfurtures first appeared in the United States in 1860. Americans called frankfurtures dachshund sausages. A dachshund is a dog from Germany with a very long body and short legs. Dachshund sausage was a good name for the frankfurtures.
Dachshund sausages first became popular in New York, especially at baseball games.
Their sellers kept them warm in hot water tanks as they walked up and down the rows of people, they shouted - Get your dachshund sausages.Get your dachshund sausages. People bought the sausages and put them on buns, special kind of bread.
One day in 1906 a newspaper's cartoonist Tad Dorgan went to see a baseball game. When he saw the men selling the dachshund sausages he got an idea for a cartoon. The next day at the newspaper office he drew a bun with a dachshund in it - not a dachshund sausage but a dachshund. Dorgan didn't know how to spell dachshund. So, under the cartoon he wrote - get your hotdogs. The cartoon was a sensation and so was the new name. If you go to a baseball game today, you can still see sellers walking around with hot water tanks. As they walk up and down the rows they shout - Get you hot dog here!Get your hot dog here!
