  • On Good Things Utah this morning – It’s been a longstanding debate: “Is a hot dog a sandwich?” But now one butcher shop has entered the chat with an alternative to the beloved backyard BBQ staple and people are split on the idea of a flat hot dog. Rastelli’s in New Jersey unveiled a 3-ounce flat frankfurter ahead of the Fourth of July and the internet had a field day, questioning whether it still could be considered a hot dog. Reagan has very strong feelings about this one!
  • Plus, the majority of Americans believe in aliens, and we really do think they come in peace. According to a Pew Research study, about 65% of people said they think there is intelligent alien life on other planets. An even stronger majority of about 87% said they don’t believe UFOs are a security threat at all or only represent a minor one. Americans under 30 years old and men are the two groups most inclined to believe in extraterrestrial life.
