Hot dog!

I've just returned from seeing X-Men III, which I heartily recommend. In my opinion (as someone who's never followed the comics) it's the best film yet. I think it's best to see it without knowing anything about it, so I won't say any more here.

However, for fans of the NPH and the literary works of Mr. Terence Pratchett, Esquire, I bring you the sleeve of my hot dog.

Wonder if Terry knows?

I wonder too, but I'm afraid I have no idea.

There is a recurring character (or even archetype) in a number of Terry Pratchett books called C.M.O.T. Dibbler who sells sausages of dubious repute "inna bun". The text on the hot dog sleeve is a pretty direct quote.

For some reason I have this mental image of the Doctor saying the sleeve of my hot dog rather than "the air from my lungs".

Please excuse me while I go quietly insane in this corner over here...
