  1. Maybe he’s the guy who sabotaged Kobayashi’s hot dog eating career.

  2. I’m guessing it’s how the hot dog man’s apparently long-term plan for revenge doesn’t involve becoming incredibly rich or powerful or being especially cunning and foresightful in order to trap Ted, but rather just being the guy that’ll give him a nasty hot dog.

  3. Or to give him horrible repeating burps and atomic heartburn.

  4. “Here’s your hot do… oh no. damn! damn!-damn!-DAMN!”

  5. My own two cents: I agree with P. The cartoon is about how the guy on the right has gone to ridiculous lengths to get “revenge” on Ted, who looks like a pretty innocuous and harmless guy. The vendor has apparently waited years for this moment and seems oblivious to how lame his revenge is and that he’s wasted a lot of time and energy on this ridiculous plan when there are much better, more satisfying ways to get revenge on an enemy, i.e. becoming successful and rich. Also, by giving Ted advance warning like this, he’s spoiling his big moment. Sad, really.

  6. Does it have something to do with the vendor being dressed like an old-timey locomotive engineer?

  7. Um, maybe Ted IS IN the hot dog. Who really knows what’s in a hot dog anyway?
