18 Gross Vintage Hot Dog Ads

Hot dogs are an all-American meal any day of the year. They have long been a part of our family dinner table, from Skinless franks to Oscar Mayer wieners to the gourmet dogs of the modern grocery aisle. Let's take a look at some vintage print advertisements that will either have you hungering for hot dogs or opting for a burger.

2. Do not try dunking your hot dogs in milk.

3. Oscar Mayer hid BBQ in cans with its "Sack O'Sauce."

4. "DO NOT BOIL," the ad warns. Well now we really want to boil them to see what happens.

5. No weirder than Pigs in a Blanket. Okay, a little weirder.

6. A young Conan O'Brien or a young Joey Chestnut?

16. In case you need to encase 9,600 hot dogs per hour.

17. This one slathers on the double entendres like mustard.
