Know Your Meme

Glizzy is a slang term for “hot dog.” In June 2020, some online applied the term to images of people eating hot dogs, referring to them as “Glizzy Gladiators” if the picture’s subject can fit a large section of the hot dog in their mouth.
The origins of the term is unknown and existed in various reigons around the US, including Washington, DC and Alabama prior to appearing online.[4]
