I find it ironic that the Recession Special at Gray’s Papaya has actually increased in price during a recession. Two years ago, I wrote about the Recession Special and how I used to order one after every soccer game. Back then, it only cost $2.75. I walked by Gray’s Papaya today and saw the Recession Special priced at $4.45.
This is ridiculous. In times of trouble, I should be able to count on being able to purchase two hot dogs and a drink for under $3.
On a related note, I’m dressing as a hot dog for Halloween. Come hang with me on Friday. You’ll get to see a dancing hot dog.
