Definitions / April 3, 2004
In what may become a ongoing thing, here are a few definitions that most people don’t know, and I’ve been unable to find online:
White Hots: Apparently a Central New York phenomenon. A type of hot dog, originally produced by Zweigles, in Rochester, NY. When uncooked, they are all white, apparently due to a lack of any nitrates or food coloring in the production process. This supposedly makes them healthier. They have a distinctive taste, which tends to make them a personal preference; not for everyone.
Shit-Kickers: Heavy duty work boots, usually military issue. Black leather with thick soles. Popular in punk rock and redneck circles.
