Thanks Carl, I knew that. But to me a hotdog is already a scary thing - I've read what they put into sausages...
Chris, just so you know, "The Onion" is a satirical website/publication that writes fake comic articles.
However......what is true is that Pizza Hut has a pizza with a crust stuffed with hot dogs. That is real and that is totally gross. I have a feeling The Onion surely had that pizza (among others) in mind when they were lampooning the limits of what humans will eat.
Brrr! I hate to eat things I can't identify and would pay to be out of such a test! I'll eat the left-over persimmons instead.

To the best of my knowledge, I don't believe I've ever eaten a persimmon either.
I think I've said this before, but I don't remember ever eating a persimmon.
Bertold, you made me wish there was a ditch around here with that much asparagus in it.
Made a persimmon cake yest. Need to use up last year's pulp. Really good. The recipe comes out of a little booklet I bought years ago, all about persimmons.

In the 50s my granny used to cut tons of wild asparagus from the ditches around their farm in MN. It was wonderful and always a welcome sign of summer.
Carl, about asparagus, Wikipedia notes that "It is usually dioecious, with male and female flowers on separate plants, but sometimes hermaphrodite flowers are found. The fruit is a small red berry 6–10 mm diameter, which is poisonous to humans."
Mother Earth News says: "Until about 20 years ago, all asparagus varieties were a mixture of male and female plants. But Rutgers University researchers developed a method for propagating only the male plants (the female plants produce seeds). These “all-male” asparagus varieties — including ‘Jersey Giant, 'Jersey Supreme’ and ‘Jersey Knight' — produce up to three times more than older, open-pollinated male/female varieties, such as ‘Mary Washington.’That’s because they put all of their energy into producing spears rather than seeds, according to Chee-kok Chin, a professor of plant biology and pathology at Rutgers. That also means male plants do not produce volunteer seedlings, which compete against the established plants and reduce yields. All-male hybrids also are more disease resistant than older varieties."
