Gaius was the inventor so they claim of the hot dog he stuffed the intestines of animals with meats and spices and BOOM! The hot dog was born. Hot dogs used to be called Frankfurters, but they have many names. hotdogs were originally imported from Germany and the word frankfurter gets its name from Frankfurt Germany. Back during the great depression hot dogs were only served for a nickel. Thats only 5 pennies.
