8's and 10's
How come hot dogs come in packs of ten and buns come
in packs of eight?
Now this really is puzzling.... I mean why on
earth would you want to put hot dogs in packs of 10 and the buns in
8... it just doesn't seem to economical to me...
TB gave us these couple ideas:
1. Meat is generally sold by the pound,
buns are sold by the dozen (or multiples of three and four) making
nice compact packages. There are 10 hot dogs to the pound (8 for
jumbo hots). 2. Manufacturer changes are a pain and can be expensive
to change. 3. The situation has been allowed to continue because the
people meekly submit to it. Less than 1 percent even complain about
4. Some manufacturers sell buns and hot dogs in packages of
different sizes depending on market dictates but they are in the
rebel has this idea:
so you will have to buy two packages of buns and
they will get more of your hard earned money.
they r watching believes the government is out to
the answer to this question is quite simple, the
secrete government who's whole point is to make the lives of
everyone else bad if you do not believe this then the government
will not bother you but for those who know about this secret
origination then they will try to hunt you down.
Casey reported her side of the story:
Well....it all comes down to this: some people are
greedy when it comes to eating hot dogs. They either end up eating
some as soon as they open the package, or they sometimes feel the
need to stuff more than one hot dog into one bun. Therefore, buns
only need to come in packs of 8 because the hot dogs get used up so
easily. If people weren't so greedy, then buns could eventually be
sold in packs of 10...if they already aren't.
goin_to_cali came to this conclusion:
In response to the question on why do hotdogs come
in packs of 10 and buns come in packs of 8, I think that it is a
marketing ploy on the part of the bun company, because if you want
enough buns to cover the amount of hotdogs, you have to buy 2 packs
of buns...therefore the bun companies receive more money. Of course
there might be a better explanation for this, but this is the only
one I could come up with.
C.H.U.D. gave us this simple solution:
Buy bun-length wieners. They come in packs of 8.
Ash Jamalatar finished the conversation with this
It's an obvious conspiracy. The bun company is in
cahoots with the hot dog company. They want you to buy one pack of
hot dogs and one pack of buns. Then, to use up the other two hot dog
buns, you have to buy more hot dogs. You would have more hot dog
buns left over, so you, once again, are forced to buy more hot dogs.
Eventually, this would zero out (8 packs of hot dogs, 80 hot dogs,
and 10 packs of buns, 80 buns), but no one wants to eat that many
hot dogs. The solution: Don't eat hot dogs.
