It’s National Hot Dog Day, as part of National Hot Dog Month, and Nathan’s is taking the time to demand none other than a hot dog emoji. Naturally.
The Coney Island-hot dog maker went so far as to tweet its consternation over the lack of an icon on the popular texting feature. “The world cannot live on 🍔 and 🍕 and 🍟 alone. Give us #HotDogEmoji. Share to show your support!”
The timing, of course, is impeccable with the national holiday on Thursday. Fun fact: “In 2014, consumers spent more than $2.5 billion on hot dogs in U.S. supermarkets,” according to the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council.
It continued, “During peak hot dog season, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Americans typically consume 7 billion hot dogs. That’s 818 hot dogs consumed every second during that period.”
