Sometimes when you have more free time and some cold weather in your system, you sit down to have a deep, deep conversation about life and what it really means.

Other times, you and your friends argue over whether hot dogs are really just American-style tacos.
My friends and I recently had the discussion and while most of them didn’t think hot dogs were tacos, I found some information to defend my side from the Washington Post.
According to the Washington Post, Hot Dogs aren’t sandwiches, they’re Tacos!
Here is their argument;
According to the rule of the cube, there are eight food categories, each defined by the placement of starch. Use a cube as a guide to where the bread or starch goes, and that will determine what a food really is – and whether it’s a sandwich. Starch only on the bottom? It’s a toast. The unconnected top and bottom starch is, of course, a sandwich. But the starch on the bottom and two opposite sides is a taco. Therefore, a hot dog is a taco. And, to correct RBG, a penny is also a taco.
The biggest factor in the “Hot Dog is A Taco” debate is the hot dog bun.
See, if you grab the bun, most of the time it’s open on one side and still connected on the other side. This connection is what makes a Hot Dog not a sandwich but a taco since tacos are meat and toppings on a single piece of starch…the tortilla.
Based on the starch (Bun) of a hot dog, these would be tacos.
So do you agree? Are hot dogs really just an American-style taco?
