Hot dogs. Poor people created them. Rich people found a way to charge fifteen dollars for them. They’re high culture, they’re low culture, they’re sports food, they’re hangover food, and they’re deeply American, despite having no basis whatsoever in America's Indigenous food traditions. You can love them, you can hate them, you cut them up and put them in a bowl of macaroni and cheese, but you can’t avoid the great American hot dog. Raw Dog: The Naked Truth About Hot Dogs is part investigation into the cultural and culinary significance of hot dogs and part travelogue documenting a cross-country road trip researching the landscape of American hot dogs as they’re served today. From avocado and spice in the West to ass-shattering chili in the East to an entire salad on a slice of meat in Chicago, Loftus and her soon-to-be-ex eat their way across the country during the strange summer of 2021, a brief window of the year between waves of a plague that the American government has the resources to temper, but not the interest. Loftus weighs in on: - The reality of hot dog production and working conditions from factories to fast food stands in a post-Upton Sinclair world - The best hot dog you can get in the United States right now - And yes, critically overlooked bun infrastructure problems. So grab a dog, lay out your beach towel, and dig into the delicious and inevitable product of centuries of violence, poverty, and ambition, now rolling around at your local 7-11.
Listen up, folks: Bees are incredible. If you don't think so, you're wrong; but you're also in luck! Professional bee appreciator Matt Kracht is here to set the record straight with this helpful guidebook to all things bees. Broken into fourteen chapters that delve into various bee topics, from distinguishing between bees and not bees (very crucial), to exploring the absolute wonder that is bee behavior (they do a little dance directing their bee friends to a food source, for crying out loud!), to divulging the mind-blowing science behind honey making (just some extremely intricate and precise hexagonal honeycomb construction, no big deal), and more, Kracht paints a charming and enthusiastic picture of our favorite pollinators. Kracht playfully and earnestly examines ten different kinds of bees, from the honeybee to the teddy bear bee, providing unbelievably cool facts and reasons why bees deserve a lot more credit. With lighthearted watercolor and ink drawings, humorous quips, lists, and musings, OMFG, BEES! will show you just how important these esteemed bee-list celebrities really are. (Hint: We can't live without them.)
