Over-the-top public proposals are often cheesy. Not this one – it was meaty.

When China's Wang Han decided to propose to his girlfriend, Zhen Juan Kang, he didn't do it with a dozen red roses. Instead, he used hundreds of hot dogs to spell out his everlasting love.

According to Kotaku, the pair first met three years ago at a hot-dog shop in Thailand. Since then, the couple have delighted in their mutual love of the pork-based semi-sandwich.

With the help of a corporate sponsor, Wang procured 1,001 hot dogs – one for each day since he and Kang met – and used them to spell out the word "love."

She said yes, of course, and the happy couple celebrated by sharing a quick bite of – you guessed it – a hot dog.
