Pie? Or hot dog?

I just received an email that says "Hot dog!" then goes on to explain that I got pie.  This got me thinking.  Rather than apples, you all could (should?) give out "Slaughterhouse floor sweepings."  When enough of these "slaughterhouse floor sweepings" had been accumulated, members would receive a hot dog.  I think most folks would clearly rather receive an email thanking them for their "quality post" and awarding them with a pile of slaughterhouse floor sweepings.  And instead of a red, roundish icon appearing on posts and under a member's name, you'd have the icon of an elongated pinkish fleshy thing.  You all have really missed the mark with this whole apple and pie business.

Just a thought.

I am happy with receiving apples as the reward for quality posts.  This "icon of an elongated pinkish fleshy thing" might be very confusing as to what it really is.

In our culture "hot-dogs" are a symbole of "junk food". (yes it is possible to make it healthy, but "apples" are an obvious healthy symbole - "an apple a day keeps the doctor away".  Plus in temperate and cold climates they grow very well.

Which would accumulate into what?  A side salad?  "Congratulations!  You got a side salad!"  Bah!  Hot dogs it must be.

I mean, think about it.  Pie is full of sugar, and we all know how detrimental sugar is to our health.  Hot dogs, on the other hand, are full of glorious things like MSG and all the fiddly animal bits that no other sausage wanted.  How can the latter not be superior?
