Joey Fatone, whom you may recognize from his stint as one of the legendary members of *NSYNC, has recently announced that he’s getting into the hot dog business. He tweeted the announcement and unveiled his new logo, as you can see above. Somehow, someway, we all kind of knew that the one member of *NSYNC who often referred to himself as The Fat One would end up opening a sausage cart called Fat One’s in the Florida Mall. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

What’s especially funny is that Fatone shared some info on what you can expect to buy at Fat One’s. As a patron of this fine establishment, you can expect to find “100% Angus beef dogs that you can enjoy pressed in a variety of styles from the Reuben to the Gone Hollywood to the Boybander (5 mini hot dogs).” It’s clear that he’s got a sense of humor. So, in the spirit of good humor, we would like to suggest some of our top contenders (top dogs as it were) for possible food names at Fat One’s Hot Dogs & Italian Ice.

  • “Bye Bye Bison”
  • “I’ll Be Back for Boar”
  • “It’s Gonna Be Mayonnaise” (alternatively: “It’s Gonna Be Me(at)”)
  • “Tearin Up My Harissa”
  • “Merry Christmas, Happy Hollandaise”
  • “This I Promise Bleu (Cheese)”
  • “Pop” (This one wrote itself.)
  • “I Want You Baby Back” Ribs
  • “(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Thyme on You”
  • “I Chive Myself Crazy”
  • “Crazy for Stew”
  • Kaleing
  • “No Potato Strings Attached”
  • “Shellfish”

We’re available for consulting, Fatone. Have your people call our people.
