Culture of Illusion – Pity the Horse.


This work of art weighs in at an impressive 299g – about the same weight as an African Swallow. It offers the valued consumer close to a third of their required daily calorie intake. The chefs have gone for the swollen horse cock aesthetic. This is a very popular aesthetic in the hot dog world. To round off the joyful experience it is then slathered in spicy hot slurry, then, woven above it with great skill and patience a lattice of thick yellow mustard is laid, before being wedged in the breaded crack of a soft bun. This is what civilisation has brought us. This is what progress is. Revel in it for it is us – what we are and ever more shall be. It has more to say about art or culture than can ever be said with words.

I should explain, for those who are confused, that this is a hot dog promoted a couple of years ago from the respectable hot dog chain, Sonic, here in the USA. Do not fret, dear heart, for this wonderful creation is still available for you at all of the many delightfully appointed Sonic outlets in your area.
