Here's your totally useless fact of the day...... First day of Summer 2003

The Ice Cream cone was invented in the summer of 1904 by Charles Menches. It made its debut one year later at the St. Louis World Fair.

Americans consumed more than 20 billion hot dogs in 2002, 9 billion of which were purchased in retail stores!!


Americans typically consume 7 billion hot dogs between Memorial Day and Labor Day.


Americans will eat 25.9 million hot dogs in major league ballparks -- that's enough to stretch from Dodgers' Stadium in Los Angeles to Yankee Stadium in New York City.


On the Fourth of July, Americans will enjoy 150 million hot dogs!


More hot dogs will be eaten at New York's Yankee Stadium - 1.8 million in 2003 - than in any other major league ballpark in the country!


The Council estimates Americans will consume more than 2 billion hot dogs during National Hot Dog Month this July!
