Lastly, is the person who doesn't know what a hot dog "all the way" is for
real? Is this an idiosyncracy or are there other wisconsinites with the same
gap (bill?)? In Chile, if that's what you wanted, you ordered "un completo",
which was amazing in its toppings, and very messy. My mouth is watering, let's
not get back on junk food, please.

Terribly sorry, Ellen, but I never heard the term "all the way" used to
mean "with everything [on it]" until that posting.
I'm in Chicago, after all, and if ya want a hot dog here, ya better ask
for it "loaded" or "with the works," or even "with everything."
