According to Wiki they're supposed to be an Americanized (cheapened?) version of Vienna style sausages, which in Vienna are actually called Frankfurters, because the guy who invented them was from Frankfort Germany but moved to Vienna Austria.
I've had some dang fine sausage in Germany and one of my favorite foods is Swedish Korv at Christmas. Somehow these have never been in the same ballpark.
Has anybody ever actually tried that stuff in the similar shaped cans that says "Potted Meat Product"?
I've seen the quiet dead; and I've heard the living moan. This world's no place to live in, but it's home.
