Are Hotdog Buns Still Forbidden?
« on: April 08, 2012, 09:48:05 pm »
Traditionally, keeping Discordian meant observing the dietary commandments of The Principia Discordia.  Specifically no hotdog buns.  Is this dietary rule still practised?
Utah is a state which is basically owned by the Mormon church, which has a lot of intermarriage. And because of this intermarriage there is a large proportion of blind people in Utah. That's why when you go across the street instead of just a stop light that you can see, they have stop lights that make a coocoo noise to tell you when to cross the street.

“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
― Assata Shaku

I'm not exactly what one would call an orthodoxed Discordian. You can't eat a delishus bacon-wrapped Crif Dog without a bun and I feel it's much more important to partake of a couple those with reckless abandon.

No. . . but I didn't believe that part.

Why would you even take that seriously?  Jesus fuck. :x
Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial increases in corpse production.

I practice this religiously.  Though, as it turns out, hotdog buns become vastly unnecessary when one has chosen to not consume hot dogs.  Granted hotdog buns do make great vessels for a great many foods....

Principia scholars suggest that the ban from hot dog buns arises not out of scorn for dietary restrictions of other religions but true distaste for the state of hot dog consumption in society on the part of Mal2.  An ongoing debate surrounds that line, one of the many contradictory and vague Discordian tenets.  It is theorized that one side notes a lack of creativity in the time the work was written when it comes to hot dogs as a food, their dressing limited to classic mustard, relish, and ketchup.  The hot dog bun is generally an enriched white flour good that adds little flavor or creative capability to the act of eating a hot dog.  Mal2 was far ahead of his time in noting that a sturdier bun, such as that used to contain sub sandwiches, or even grinders or hoagies, allowed for greater addition of toppings for the classic hot dog.

Some go so far as to believe Mal2 was actually an adherent to the revolutionary hot dog movement of his time, a rather unknown collective made up of hot dog enthusiasts ranging from the most well known chefs to street corner vendors looking for the next step.  Julia Child was also believed to be a part of this.  If that's the case, it's actually amazing the impact that he had on the world of hot dogs.  While the classic hot dog is still our cultural archetype for the food, many a specialty store are serving them on sturdier buns with toppings unfathomable in his day.  I've even read of places which split the dog in half and then grill the inside, which is mind boggling even for my modern standards of hot dogs.

Still, a fervent debate rages over whether or not Mal2 was indeed making a commentary on the state of food in the nation, a timely remark well before such thinking became prevalent and necessary for our continued survival.  Historically flour was eaten by peasants and common people in its whole grain form, healthier but less decadent than the white flour we see so often today.  White flour was expensive and only affordable by nobility and royalty.  With the advent of new techniques white flour became the standard in bread making, thus robbing many a people of the nutrition found in its whole wheat counterpart.  "Enriching" white flour with vitamins to make it healthier has done little to mimic the benefits of naturally occurring wheat flour nutrients.  Mal2, being the prescient mind he was, saw this as the conspiracy of depriving the masses of much vitamins for healthy minds on the part of those in power seeking to more easily manipulate them.  Rather than complicate his statement with the proclamation to not eat any white flour based products or to consume only whole wheat, he decided in his wisdom to disavow only a part, to offer only a hint of what more lie beneath the surface - much like the Principia Discordia itself.

Yet others think it's total bullshit.

Hah, that was a copiedpasta from way back in what ended up being some dude's Unlimited thread.  I had to dig through a few pages of Principia Discussion to find it again.
