“OTT Dog, getchyer OTT Dog right here!”

As seen in Rome today.

I think with the “hot dog and ketchup” you also receive a complimentary copy of the classic Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma by Ludwig Ott.

    Maybe it’s an otterhound.

    In a few brief moments this will be my iPad background.

    Also, Father, regarding your promotion of various dystopian novels, I am reading 1984 in my high school English class, it’s good.

  5. Legisperitus says:

    Nicholas Shaler: 1984 is good, but check out Brave New World sometime; I think it was more prescient in many ways.

    Everyone knows that the only way to eat an OTT-DOG is with KRAUT and MUSTRAT (spicy, not yellow).

    @Nicholas Shaler
    I liked Animal Farm better.

    Checiap on an Ott Dog!? Outrageous! The New World gave Europe the tomato and look what has happened!

    Brr, ketchup is the best way to destroy food, even over cooked canines! Sausage should be served with mustard!

    Legis and Sonshine,

    We read Animal Farm in my freshman year and will read Brave New World next year. I don’t know which of the two between Animal Farm and 1984 I prefer, but I am looking forward to Brave New World.

    In my neck of the woods, you don’t ask for checiap on your ott-dog. You drag it through il giardino or ask for mustard.

    No “raliss”?
    I like pikel raliss on my ott dog.

    Bea, thanks for the big laugh!
