Gordon, this is so cool! Now you’ll be able to find your wieners in a blackout. (Just in case in a blackout your first thought is, damn, I’d sure like a hot dog.)

I don’t know about glow in the dark hotdogs, but it would certainly make for an interesting pet.

All it takes it one minor lab accident and we’re in the middle of a 1950’s horror movie.”

I have yet to find an American hotdog that I believe contains actual pork.

Maybe this would settle the debate once and for all. At least until they make glow in the dark alley cat.
