Intermission Time

Here’s a charming (if hellishly unappetizing) montage of old drive-in movie theater snack bar clips posted on youtube by “sandyanna.” I especially like the segment in which a bun forces a hot dog to perform a series of tricks before spreading itself open and welcoming the anxious wiener inside. Dr. Freud, please report to the snack bar.
