A practical joke in which a hotdog is gently leaned against the face of a sleeping friend, creating a tiny ladder between a pillow and the friend's face. A successful hotdog ladder is achieved when one's fingers can be walked from the base of the ladder to the top without waking the friend. It should be noted that the wiener is not intended to be phallic.
Joanna fell asleep early last night and we gave her a hotdog ladder. She was pretty pissed when she woke up.
