That free-corn-dogs-at-Honest-Ed’s thing from yesterday? Apparently, it was all an elaborate ruse designed to get hungry Torontonians to eat some kind of fake veggie meat. That’s right: there wasn’t a shred of real pig in those dogs. In fact, the truth was written right on the sticks, which, once released from their fleshless sheaths, said this: “This little piggy wasn’t a piggy.” It’s a good thing, we suppose, that the force behind the giveaway wasn’t some scuzzy pervert in a trench coat, but instead a wholesome vegetarian enterprise. (The dogs were supplied by all-veg food truck Karma Chamealeon, as a promo for the upcoming Veg Food Fest at Harbourfront.) Ten points for anyone who pegged it as a PR stunt.
