Things Stupid People Buy: Happy Hot Dog Man

OMG.  I am just shaking my head in disbelief...

I can picture it now. A man walks into a bank, sits down and says to the money man, "Okay, here's my idea, you take a hot dog and cut a face into it, see. And kids like it because it looks like a person and you can make it dance.  It's gonna make millions!'  And some moron actually gave them the money to make this stupid thing!

The website says, "With the Happy Hot Dog Man™, every meal is an adventure! The entire family can get in on the fun, as you transform those boring old hot dogs into exciting figures you design… and eat! With ketchup, mustard, pickles or cheese. Turn it into whatever you please, and with endless possibilities, your Happy Hot Dog Man™ will make you smile again and again"

And, hey! For a limited time, you'll get a set of two – one in red, one in yellow – for the super low price of $10.99 plus $6.99 shipping and handling. Act now, and they'll double the offer, just pay separate $6.99 processing. That’s a total of 4 Happy Hot Dog Men™! As an added bonus, they’ll send you the Ketchup Critter and Mustard Monster bottle toppers to make decorating a total blast! This special Happy Hot Dog Man™ offer is not available in stores so the only way to get it is to place your order now!
