Why are there only seven hotdogs in a Hebrew National packet?* Packets of hotdog buns contain eight buns. I'd have to buy eight packets of Hebrew National hotdogs and seven packets of buns to even things out. Fifty-six hotdogs!
But then I'd need fifty-six beers - one per hotdog - to go along with that. Beer comes in six- or twelve packs, or cases of twenty-four... So I'd need to buy twenty-four packets of Hebrew National hotdogs, twenty-one packets of buns and seven cases (or twenty-eight six-packs) of beer. Now we're up to 168 hotdogs.
But what about the paper plates? Do they come in packs of 168? Or six? or seven? Eight? Twenty-four? And how about napkins?
