    We know how it's spelled, but how do you pronounce it? Bull-og-nah, or Bal-OH-knee?

    Having grown up in the rural South, it's the latter.

    I never thought about putting slices on the grill...the comment about a flat hot dog has me thinking.

    That's the thing, I grew up largely outside of the States and I've never heard other than the latter.

    The St. Louis area, where I grew up, has some interesting redneck pronunciations.

    Forty = Farty

    Library = Libary

    And my fav...

    There is no Further.

    There is no Farther.

    They are both Futher.

    Man, I grew up on fried BALONEY sammiches and now I'm hungry.

    I can't remember the last time I ate it.

    "Mortadella"

    The OED lists the pronunciations all of the sort of Ball-ahn-ya or Ball-OWN-Ya (the latter being ascribed as the US pronunciation). Ball-Ogg-Na is right out.

    The substitution of Baloney which is an etymologically different word is noted but the connection is described as "conjectural." Baloney as "humbug or nonsense" goes back to the 1920's, but the use of it to refer to the lunch meat is not long thereafter, 1935).

    The etymology suggest that Baloney might be a corruption of Polony, which dates back to describe a sausage variant in the 17th century. Oddly, that word's etymology sys it's derived from Bologna.

    the one about adding slaw to it?
    the one about mustard?
    the one about how ketchup is the devil's work?
    the one about how it has to be fried first?
    the one about using an egg as a condiment on the baloney sandwich?

    The thing about boloney is that you don't realize how bad it is for you until you fry/microwave it and see all the grease left.

    I've never tried it, but I suspect you can pull off microwaving a slice of baloney better than you can a hot dog.

    In some parts of Baltimore, a hot dog comes wrapped in a slice of fried baloney. Kind of interesting taste actually.

    Pronounced baloney. Spelled either, though baloney works better for context.

    Also, Bologna should sue over being associated with that word.

    How do you pronounce "Bologna?

    Just like many other pseudo-foods; “Not steak”

    I was actually expecting one about the thread being a bunch of baloney.

    I had hundreds of sandwiches with the circular, flat meat, as a child. I'm not a huge fan of the stuff now, no matter *how* you pronounce it.

    The few times I've tried nuking a hot dog, it just split at the ends and was very unappetizing. I haven't tried a piece of baloney. If I would have thought about it a few days ago when there was still some in the fridge, I might have tried it.

    Years ago I was in Maine and the local fire department was running a smoker with all kinds of stuff in it and one was hunks of baloney (cut from an unsliced roll).

    It has been my experience that microwaving any kind of meat produces an undesirable result.
