    (I could find no thread dedicated to Gene & Jude's aside from the locked GNR one. So I have either remedied this remiss or thanks to whoever merges this where it more properly belongs.)

    This video homage to Gene & Jude's seems to have borrowed Mike G's pics from the GNR thread.

    R,

    In addition to Mike G's pics there is one from the same thread by Antonius.

    Enjoy,

    They got one of mine, too. Who do I sue about this?

    Maybe you can get the chicken and waffle judge to adjudicate.

    I can hear him now. "Mr. Hammond, I'm sure you'll relish this verdict: we award you damages in the sum of $XX."

    Somehow, I don't appreciate funny judges. It's like of like when you have a "funny" pilot on a flight, sharing his wit over the intercom. It's like, "Shut up and fly the plane, comedy boy!"

    Clearly, which is not to say I haven't had the thrill of standing before a judge.

    Thing is, when the guy who holds the fate of you and others in his hands tries to make you laugh, goes for the giggle...well, it makes me uncomfortable.

    The most famous Chicago Lawyer ever said the following about humor in the courtroom:

    "If you lose the power to laugh, you lose the power to think."

    as someone who has been both lawyer and litigant I also agree with hammonds perspective.

    I've read/heard some of the transcripts of the Rezko trial, and I have to admit, I giggled (though not all the humor was intended).

    I must say, I'm not a huge fan of Gene and Jude's. I find that they don't steam the hot dogs long enough and the casing winds up having a bite to it, which I'm not a fan of.

    You are not a fan of bite? That's cool, but what's the alternative. Mush?

    Must say, I was not a fan of G&J's originally, but I've come to enjoy meals there quite a lot. The sausage has snap; me like.

    Yeah, hearing someone describe the bite of a hot dog as a negative is a first for me, but I suppose that's why they make skinless hot dogs.

    Gene & Jude's :wink:

    And responding to the response about the bite...my Grandma says the same thing "I hate the snap of the hot dogs". Weird to me, I love it.

    I've got a friend who didn't like the hot dogs at Portillo's because of the skin pop.

    I love natural casing dogs, but I have had on rare occasions weiners in which the casing is too tough and the inside too mushy so that everything kind of squirts out the end when you try to bite it. The inside needs to be firm enough to allow a clean bite and pop.

    I have another friend who removes all the skin from everything, including skinless weiners! He peels the entire "skin" off the hot dog, leaving a little pile of red pieces and an ugly misshapen naked gray weiner. He even does it at the ball game. He's a nut.

    G & J put me in my place last night - my order was "one with everything" (delicious) and a tamale, wrapped up with their delicious fries. $3.58 for plenty of food, have to love it. On my way out, for the first time in my recent history there, I asked if they had any ketchup in packets "just for the fries." Bad idea.

    Kid #1: "We don't have ketchup. At all." [flat, cool stare]
    Kid #2: "You see that McDonald's next door? They know what's up. Just go to the drive-through."

    I was disdainfully sent to a Micky D's by two sixteen year-olds in a hot dog stand, and honestly, I deserved it.

    Why no ketchup for fries? I get the evil eye when I put it on hot dogs (YES! I PUT IT ON HOT DOGS!) but I see lots of folks doing it for fries. Ketchup's a vegetable, after all.

    Since G & J wraps the fries up with the hotdogs, trace amounts of hotdog infused water are transferred to the surface of the fries. Even minute quantities of hotdog essence can produce dangerous chemical reactions and toxic byproducts when in contact with catsup-based reagents. G & J are only trying to protect you and maintain public safety.

    Ooh, hot dog essence. I used to love nibbling on "raw" hot dogs and drinking the juice from the plastic bubble they came in. This may be the place for me. Unless, by 'wrapped up with the hot dogs" you mean they're packaged a similar way to Superdawg, then G&J must be destroyed.

    LOL, I would have given him crap about it, too (just as I do my Hoosier wife, who likes 'chup on her dogs, too). Still, being so hardcore that you don't offer ketchup even for fries is amazingly annoying to me, which is why I'm not a big fan of G & J's.

    And please, G Wiv, don't misconstrue this as a plea to be accomodated. It is merely a declaration of my independence from G & J's. 8)
