A hot dog is a sacred item in Discordianism.

According to Principia Discordia:

THE MYTH OF THE APPLE OF DISCORD[]

It seems that Zeus was preparing a wedding banquet for Peleus and Thetis and did not want to invite Eris because of Her reputation as a trouble maker.* This made Eris angry, and so She fashioned an apple of pure gold** and inscribed upon it KALLISTI ("To The Prettiest One") and on the day of the fete She rolled it into the banquet hall and then left to be alone and joyously partake of a hot dog.

THE FIVE COMMANDMENTS (THE PENTABARF)[]

The fourth and fifth commandment of The Pentabarf are these:

  • III - A Discordian is Required during his early Illumination to Go Off Alone & Partake Joyously of a Hot Dog on a Friday; this Devotive Ceremony to Remonstrate against the popular Paganisms of the Day: of Catholic Christendom (no meat on Friday), of Judaism (no meat of Pork), of Hindic Peoples (no meat of Beef), of Buddhists (no meat of animal), and of Discordians (no Hot Dog Buns).
  • IV - A Discordian shall Partake of No Hot Dog Buns, for Such was the Solace of Our Goddess when She was Confronted with The Original Snub.

HODOBO CABAL[]

The Hodobo Cabal wears hot dogs to its meetings which are held each month on the fifth Friday.
