Vienna Sausages

At the Dollar Store at Mall 205, a family of Mom, Teen Sis, and maybe 5-yr-old Brother:

Sis: I can't find them. We've been up and down this aisle twice.
Mom: Keep looking.
Brother: Can't we just cut up regular hot dogs real small?
Mom (shrieking): NO! We have to have 20 cans of Vienna Sausages or it WON'T WORK!

- Overheard by ZenAngel, who writes: "The last 2 words were shrieked with a panic I have never before attributed to Vienna Sausages. I also can't help but wonder what hellish recipe or plan called for the absolute use of Vienna Sausages, OR ELSE."
