True love waits for 1,001 hot dogs

In a declaration of love that even the Hamburgler would have to admire, a Chinese man has secured a fianceé with the aid of 1,001 wieners.


The man, named Wang, arranged the (apparently corporate-sponsored) hot dogs—one for each day he had known his girlfriend, surnamed Chen—in Chengdu’s New Century Global Centre. The pair reportedly met on vacation in Thailand, at a hot dog stand.

Chen was moved by the display of tubular meat, despite a seeming dearth of condiments, and agreed to make Wang the happiest frankfurter hound on Earth. (I don’t know why I’m trying to make this funny—it’s already a guy proposing with hot dogs.)

There’s not much more to say here except: Way to throw some serious shade on that obnoxious “300 sandwiches” couple.
