‘Hot legs’ versus ‘hot dogs’

It’s a debate that’s raged all summer long: Are we looking at legs or hot dogs in that Instagram photo?

Stay with me here.

A popular trend on the photo-sharing service is for people to post a shot of their lower thigh and knees in the foreground with some sort of scenery in the background. Apparently the trend is called “hot legs.” I don’t know. I just work here.

But a few clever people noticed that some people’s legs look like two hot dogs. From the right angle, it’s tough to tell the difference.

As a joke, BuzzFeed put together a mashup of images of both “hot legs” and hot dogs. It’s been getting a lot of shares lately, and the debate is picking up steam.

Side note: Hot dogs should never be steamed. Grilled is the only way to go.
