I just now realized why my alarm clock went off at 7am on a day where I didn't have any appointments in town to get ready for. It's my Pinstrosity day! I guess I should make a note telling me why I'm waking up so in my sleepy state I don't just glare at the alarm clock wondering why it is "unnecessarily" going off. My bad.
So, I'm here today with a great Pinstrosity for you. This one made me laugh pretty good, nearly woke Darrow up. Good thing he's a solid sleeper.
You know that one octopus hot dog pin? The one to make hot dogs more fun for kids? Here...this one:
The Original Pin
Kristen saw this and thought it would be a fun way to liven up lunch. She said, "My lunch recently became a horrible not really safe for work monstrosity as I attempted to replicate a pin. The objective seemed simple enough: turn lunch into a fun octopus hot dog hanging out in the ocean. My end result however, looked nothing like the original pin."
"I'd made a couple of healthier substitutions, I traded the noodles for mashed sweet potato and instead of a hot dog I used a chicken, feta, and spinach sausage, but it wasn't anything I thought would be too drastic. In fact, the author of the original pin said they preferred to use beef, chicken, or turkey dogs! They lied, this doesn't work with anything other than a regular hot dog."
"As for the GCT test, I'd rate it a 3. This project mostly worked and if you knew what it was supposed to look like you can see the resemblance. Above all it was edible, but it got a whole lot of strange glances from around the lunch table."
Bahahaha, the more I read her story and look at her lunch picture, the more I'm laughing. This is awesome and I love that Kristen sent it in to us.
So if you decide to try for the hotdogtopus, it looks like a regular hot dog is the way to go.
