Do you like hot dogs? Then welcome to the newly opened Boardwalk Cafe. I snapped these pics when we passed it this weekend, then saw it in the local paper. Our little three year old friend Ella saw it in the paper, too. You can see her here really laughing after looking at it. Well, the artist did say that he wanted this hot dog to appeal to kids. After seeing the hot dog man, I asked Ella if she liked hot dogs, and here's what she said "Sometimes we eat hot dogs, but they don't have eyes." Local quirky artist Mark Cline was commisioned to make this funny hot dog to draw attention to the new eatery. Mark has really made a name for himself with his wild sculptures. He's making a 30 foot octopus for a New Jersey park, and a whole Zombietown in Virginia Beach. It took him two weeks to make this dog out of styrofoam and fiberglass. They are having a contest to name it. Any ideas? Mr. Cline says that he makes these things because they will live on after him, and are "a form of immortality." I suppose that's why vampire shows and books are now more popular than ever, because they are immortal, never dying...But I have news for Mr. Cline and all the vampires out there. This whole world and everything in it will not be around forever and will all come to an end at some point. But there's still a way to be immortal., though not by what we make, but by what we do.
"In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality." Pro. 12:28
"To those who by persistance in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger." Romans 2:7,8
