British Media Can't Stop Talking About How David Cameron Ate Hot Dogs At A Basketball Game

The British press has already dubbed President Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron's trip to Tuesday's Western Kentucky-MVSU First Four game "The Hot Dog Summit," and U.K. news reports all appear to be uniquely concerned with Cameron's consumption of the mid-game snack.

The BBC, Sky News, and nearly every major U.K. print source covered Cameron's wiener consumption—and this isn't even the first time he's eaten one. Do they think the humble frankfurter is beneath their refined British culinary tastes? Because I've got a word for you, limeys: I'm familiar with your native cuisine. If you think Marmite, bangers and mash, pickled eggs, or spotted dick is somehow above a hot dog, you've got another thing coming. [BBC]
