National Chili Dog Day Comics Are A Gasby The GoComics Team
There are dog days and then there are chili dog days, and National Chili Dog Day is decidedly the latter. We know this because of its nomenclature.
While verifying, we were reminded that video game icon/longtime comics star Sonic the Hedgehog was a huge fan of chili dogs. Sadly, Sonic's newspaper strip comic never came to North America and was limited to a U.K. release during the early '90s. Unlike that comic, chili dogs are unlimited and available wherever good people know how to top a hot dog with chili and bonus chili-compatible toppings like cheese, onions, and hot sauce. With edible components like those, chili dogs (or Coney Dogs, if you've got historical/regional vibes), can cause indigestion, gas, and supernatural powers. At least that's what we hope. That last one is not verified by any of our own comics on the subject.
Enjoy these comics in honor of National Chili Dog Day. They have all of the chili, all of the dog, and none of the harrowing gastronomical side effects.

First a chili-day playlist, and now a chili-dog-day playlist.

If I eat one before going to bed, well, it could be lethal.
