Takeru Kobayashi Cringes

The Columbia Blowfish of the Coastal Plain League (amateurs! No, really), have announced a stunning new addition to their lineup:

It’s called the Ruthian Dog.

This massive wiener is named for legendary slugger Babe Ruth, whose hot-dog-eating exploits were as prodigious as his home-run-hitting feats.

“It’s nearly a half-pound of meat. And that doesn’t include the bun or any condiments you slop on it,” said Blowfish owner Bill Shanahan, who thinks the fabulous frank will be a huge hit with fans.

It costs $7.14, but that includes a Coke.

I, for one, welcome our new half-pound wiener overlords.
