So according to this telegraph article the American Academy for Pediatrics is calling for a change in the shape of certain foods, especially the hot dog, that are severe choking hazards. The hot dog is a dangerous threat due to its irregular shape and its capability to be lodged in the throat easily due to its shape. It is currently responsible for 17% of food choking related incidents. So then, with the redesigning of the hot dog happening it begs the question.

How do you want your hot dog shaped?
Seriously, Pluto is no longer a planet?

square, so it will stop rolling off of my George Forman grill.

But it has to be round for cooking over an open fire.

I just eat my hot dog with a fork and a knife, so the shape isn't really important. I say NAY.

Lolwut. I've never seen anybody eat a hot-dog with a fork and knife.

I say nay

1. It destroys the point of the hot dog. The reason inventions such as the sandwich, the ice cream cone, and the hot dog became popular was because the food held was easily portable compared to a salad with meat, a bucket of homemade ice cream, and a slab of meat with some bread. Any reshaping that would get rid of choking hazards would most likely at least lower the portability (or make it a carbon copy of the hamburger patty in shape)

2. The APA study states that hot dogs are the cause of 17% of choking deaths of those 10 and under Not saying its insignificant, but not as significant as 17% of all choking deaths

I fail to see how the shape of the hot dog is relevant to people choking. People show the food before it goes through their throats, which makes it the exact size and shape and any other food items when passing through the throat. If I were to eat a hamburger, it would be just as eligible to get lodged it my throat as the hotdog would.

So I say keep the shape, minus society's innuendos of its shape (see also banana)
