Do you like pizza? Do you like hot dogs? Do you like hot dogs baked in pizza crust?
In today’s news about gluttony and people eating gross things comes word of a minor league baseball promotion that combines your two favorite foods, hot dogs and pizza. Except it’s not like, “Hey, eat three hot dogs and a large pizza and be super happy for the rest of the game.” It’s, “Let’s be freakin’ disgusting and bake a goddamn hot dog in this pizza crust.”
“The idea for the Frankenslice comes from [Grizzlies director of marketing] Sam Hansen, who was trying to pair something with our Halfway to Halloween promotion,” said Grizzlies communication manager Ryan Young. “Enter a certain food vendor. … We call him the Bobby Flay of the ballpark [his real name is Justin Dukes]. He has a smoker and peach wood that he cooks everything over it. From tri-tip to the Frankenslice, he’s down to cook it.”
First of all, that doesn’t look appetizing. Second, gun to my head, I’m eating it. To summarize, I hate myself.
Also, unrelated, a hot dog in a pizza is not a sandwich.
