America is obsessed with hot dogs.
The proof: The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council estimates that we eat 20-billion hot dogs each year.
"That's enough for every man, woman and child in the world to enjoy a hot dog," the group's Web site enthuses. Another nugget from the council: kids prefer ketchup on their dogs while adults favor mustard.
