No, not a ripper.
I am talking about an actual hot dog, with a bun, and whatever toppings you want (e.g. relish, mustard, onions, etc.), and then the whole thing is dipped in batter, and then deep-fried.
Does this ring a bell with anyone?
Over lunch today, I wagered quite a bit of the "ipsedixit family treasure" that such a thing does exist, or at least did at one time, and may still do today.
