This game is really clever, and you can almost see in your mind's eye how it happened. You have a grill with rotating skewers, make for things like shish kebab. But one day all you have is hot dogs, and cooking them on the grill is a great way to make them special. Once you have the dogs skewered and give them one turn, you are reminded of a foosball table. Sure, this will work! All you need is a ball that won't burn.
Of course, all this might have happened in someone's imagination. Pablo Rochat has that kind of creative mind, and made Hot Dog Foosball a reality. (via Laughing Squid)
