Visitor Tips and News About Purple Cows and Hot Dog Man
Looks like they added a cow or two to the property (there is one lurking in the bushes out front). Hot Dog Man is still here![Lindsey, 01/20/2014]
We've seen a proliferation of Hot Dog Men nationwide -- whenever we stop at a wiener shack, we almost expect to see their self-abusing antics. But Kingsport's purple cow entourage makes this guy stand out a bit.
This drive-thru burger joint has three cows out in front that are purple and white, but as you drive in there is a Hot Dog that is getting ready to squirt mustard on himself![Charles Lewis, 06/15/2012]
Kingsport offers several giant fiberglass statues promoting food businesses, so purple cow herds may be a minimum survival requirement. The hot dog man (a now standard gag figure seen in other places) is a bonus.
