Cat Stevens actually wrote a song about this.
A long time ago, a gang of angry, feral cats broke into the Meriam-Webster building and forged some documents. It was a big scandal; they changed the names of a number of popular foods (Google “Baloneygate”).
The cats later formed a society called the “Dogmatic Watchdogs” – their purpose was to “shepherd the forces that demean felines.” They would meet in unlikely places and cause trouble; boxing rings, on farms, at sled pulls, bear-hunting contests, Continue reading “Why are hot dogs called DOGS?”
