Small hot dog stand in Iceland to support Clinton

Some time ago when Bill Clinton wasn’t so caught up in his wife’s effort with reaching to the throne in the White House, Clinton was visiting Iceland for discussions about alternative energies. Afterward Clinton, a known fast-food aficionado, was spotted at a popular hot dog stand, Baerjarins Beztu (“town’s best”). It serves the traditional Icelandic hot dog, which includes lamb, beef and pork. It is served with onions and an egg-based relish. However Clinton wanted to have a less dressing at that time. And even today you can go to Iceland and ask for a “Clinton” when you buy hot dogs. Then you will get a hot dog only with sinnep (mustard). Last summer I tried to uncover the mystery of what the sausages really contain, but after an SS meat factory worker told me, “You don’t want to know,” I decided to let it be. I just hope it doesn’t have anything to do with the heart problems Clinton experienced shortly after his visit in 2004.

The funniest thing with it all is that this small hot dog stand recently started to take an active part in the upcoming election in the US. They’ve been putting up commercial posters for this candidate all over the place. You can guess for yourself on what side they are. Let me give you a generous hint – the candidate is not a man.
