No one can answer this question correctly. See if you can before you read this. Be Honest.
         Now I like hot dogs just as much as the next guy. Especially on the outdoor grill topped with mustard and ketchup on a fresh bun. Normally at the most I can eat maybe 4 on a good day. On July 4th I watched defending world champion Joey Chestnut break his own world record by devouring 76 hot dogs and buns in just 10 minutes during Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest. This was the 14th time Joey Chestnut won the title in the last 15 years eating 26 more hot dogs than second place finisher.

         During this big television event I decided to have a little contest of my own. So I mass emailed one simple question out to a carefully selected 68 people. That question simply was - How many Vienna Sausages are in a can? The correct answer is seven. People had all kinds of crazy answers between 5 and 48 sausages. The answers were all very shocking, and out of the 42 people and one dog who responded only about 14 people were correct. That's only a mere 33% of the people surveyed knew the correct answer. I didn't give a correct answer to those people responding with multiple numbers or to those people who admitted to Googling the answer. You think people would know more about what they eat and put in their mouths. Here are all of results.

1) Walter answered 6

5) Christine answered 8, and she once had a can with the middle sausage missing. She felt cheated.
