Wild About Harry's Giving Away Free Hot Dogs, With A Catch

While everyone focuses on whatever this library thing is at SMU, I'd like to take a brief moment to discuss hot dogs. Free hot dogs, actually, which are yours for the taking at Wild About Harry's, the almost-too-casual restaurant marked by a 6-foot carnival wiener giving a thumbs up to Henderson Avenue.

Of course there's a catch. There's always a catch when free hot dogs are involved, and Wild About Harry's is only coughing up the tube steaks if you bring two ex-presidents in with you.

The current president is OK, too, but I have to wonder what Barack Obama, the POTUS who hails from the hot dog capital of the universe, would think about the links at Harry's.

What about presidents of corporations? What about presidents of nonprofit boards? My dog thinks I'm president of bringing home the delicious bags of salmon-flavored kibble, does that count? What about this guy?
