Q: Where does the president keep his armies?
A: In his sleevies.

And that is because I am flat out of hot dog jokes.

This is probably one of the best dinners I have made in recent times. Grilled hot dogs get the Bánh Mì treatment with ham, pickled vegetables and spicy mayo. On the side are seasoned waffle fries topped with a simple sauté of garlic, onions and jalapeño that is so much more delicious than it sounds.

There is actually a band from Portland, Oregon called Bánh Mì (although I think they might have disbanded last month). They cite “sammiches” as one of their influences, so maybe they will be inspired by today’s dogs.

I’ve never heard of a Piss Wagon, let alone listened to a song about one. So here we go.

Check out Bánh Mì on Facebook and Bandcamp, where you can name your price to get their music.

Cheers!
