Hot dogs are great! I don't care what anyone else has to say about them, but I enjoy eating hot dogs. Well, it seems I'm not alone in this world as one young man in China has gotten all frank to propose to his girlfriend.

This past Saturday, Chengdu Evening News reported that a 28-year-old man surnamed Wang proposed to his girlfriend surnamed Chen. Wang's proposal made the news because, well, hot dogs. Wang popped the question with, what looks like, the help of a hot dog sponsor.

Chengdu Evening News reports that Wang first met Chen in Thailand three years ago. The two met each other inside a bakery that sold hot dogs. After talking to Chen, Wang learned that was also from Chengdu, the provincial capital of Sichuan province. The two would eventually become a couple.


So, why the 1,001 hot dogs? Well it turns out that the 1,001 hot dogs represent the 1,001 days that the two have known each other! Romantic, no? Chen seemed to think so. She said "yes" to her future husband.

I wonder if they ate all 1,001 hot dogs...
