Building a Better Hot Dog


Photograph by rksdesign

A couple weeks ago, the American Academy of Pediatrics announced that instead of being a classic childhood favorite, the hot dog is actually a sinister choking hazard perfectly designed to plug the airways of America's youth. Design firm RKS decided to use this announcement as an opportunity to redesign the hot dog in such a way that it could be both safe and delicious, just in time for baseball season. While we doubt that the corkscrew shape they settled on (above; made out of play-doh) will catch on, we do admire their dedication to America's children continued ability to eat delicious processed meats.

  1. American Academy of Pediatrics need to get themselves down to Hot Dougs in Chicago. Dogs worth choking for :-)
