Requesting ketchup on hot dogs at certain hot dog places in Chicago will
be met with a flat out no. Some places won't desecrate a hot dog with
ketchup, and hand the ketchup to the patron separately, with a deep,
burning glare.

Asking for a hot dog with everything gets you everything but ketchup.
Since I hate ketchup on hot dogs myself, I would say "Everything except
ketchup" and the response would always be "They don't come with ketchup."

Please note my *new* email address: stevekl at -- you can start
using it now. (Note the letter l -- it's stevekl). I'll be unsubbing from toward the end of the summer.
