Begin by slicing the hot dogs as shown. (diagram provided) It's fun to make them

talk/cry/scream from this point on. If they offer you a wish, not to eat them, don't fall for it. I

fell for it the last time. Never again.  

Step 2: Try one first

Drop the lil' guy in the hot, hot water. As they cook, the little legs and arms begin to

spread out. They will float up to the top when they're done. Use tongs to fish 'em out, out

lift out carefully with a spoon.  

Step 3: Total dogicide

More is better applies here. Looks pretty scary to me. No Titanic jokes please.

Here are all the "bodies" we pulled out of the water. Also an octopus and a tree. (made in

a like manner, I encourage experimentation)
 

Step 5: Serving suggestions

Cut off an arm or leg and blot the stump with ketchup "blood". We can see that a crowd

has gathered, with the help of a couple toothpicks place strategically up the legs of two

"onlookers". Have fun!  Pick one up ,alive and shaking, place on bun still quivering, and bite head off. Show your sister that it is dead now. See, it's not moving?

To be fair, the Frankformer SAFELY and CONSISTENTLY cuts the dogs. :) Looks safer for the kids.
Yes it is safer than a knife, but then you can also cut a hot dog with a butter knife, or credit card. But the ease and consistency is where it excels.  Regardless, I like your ible, I used to do this with my nieces and nephews.
