Please understand that the synonym for a hot dog is W-I-E-N-E-R - not W-E-I-N-E-R. The former stems from the name for the city of Vienna, from whence hot dogs originated."Weiner" is correctly pronounced with a long "I" - not a long "E". Sorry, Anthony, but you and your parents have been mispronouncing your name all these years, perhaps the result of a misinformed American encountered by your ancestors when they came over on the boat. Thanks to you, everyone is now misspelling "wiener" and mispronouncing "Weiner."Take it from me,Danielle Weiner Weiner (Yes - I married a Weiner so I consider myself a bit of an expert on this)
Thank you very much, Ms. Weiner, for your clarification. Your point is well taken.
