I Have a V-8!! Moderator
Several years ago I worked with an older guy who had problems with his dentures and didn't wear them a lot of the time. One day I had him and a couple other guys over to my work area and made up brats and kraut. We were eating and the old guy looked up at me and asked why I was staring at him. I told him I was getting excited as hell watching him gum those sausages and was wondering if I'd have to pay him when done. Oh hell that set him off and the other guys started laughing like hell. I started calling him Grandpa Gummy after that. He was trying to bite the sausage but the skin was too tough for him to break with just his gums. The sausage was just rolling around in his mouth. After that he always used a knife and removed the skin first. I miss the old guy as we were good friends and had a lot of fun.I only brought it up out of curiosity. I worked for a company years ago that processed meats. Hot dogs and bologna are virtually identical other than diameter and how each typically is consumed. I noticed people tend to wig out over eating a cold hot dog, even though it's fully cooked just like bologna.
