How many hot dogs do we eat?

I guess you can do studies about pretty much anything. And this study proves it. This USA Today article ranks the states based on their annual hot dog and hamburger consumption. So where does Wisconsin stack up against the other 49 states?

It turns out we're about half way through the list with total sales per Wisconsin resident per year is $288. According to the article, American's eat an estimated 50 billion burgers and 20 billion hot dogs per year. The shakes out to be about 156 and 70 (respectively) per person.

Here's the list! I'm so proud.
