Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did you know?

Dodger Dogs are named after the Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium.

The 10-inch-long hot dog is named after the Major League Baseball franchise the Los Angeles Dodgers. So how did the Dodger Dog come about? Thomas Arthur worked 29 years as a concession stand manager at the Dodger Stadium and came up with an idea. Morrell Meat Company made the 10-inch hot dog, and a Dodgers' chief sponsor took over the needs of the stadium. Based upon the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, at least 2 million hot dogs were sold in the 2011 season. There are even two lines for the Dodger Dog when you go to order! One for steamed hot dogs and one for grilled hot dogs. Of course, due to the success of the Dodger Dog, there is a small chain of restaurants in Southern California. There, right now, is even a Supreme Dodger Dog that is made of 100% beef instead of 100% pork. Doyer Dogs were made too, as a Mexican themed spinoff of the famous named hot dog. It is topped with chili, jalapenos, and salsa on a hot dog and bun. Due to the Dodger Dog fame, prices are subject to change from $5 to now $10 a hot dog! This is to discourage patrons at the ball park from doubling up on the hot dogs since there is a Dodger Dog shortage.
