(Newser) – Well, somebody was bound to do it. A Florida businessman and an Illinois hot dog company have teamed up to create Anthony Weiner-themed, er, wieners. "This is something that’s too good of an opportunity to pass up," says the co-founder of Carlos Danger Weiners [sic], Randall Richards, per ABC News. "It’s a great American dream to make money off a stupid political gaffe." The hot dogs—which the company promises "rise to any occasion"—are currently only available via a website, but Richards says he's in talks with Walmart and Publix, and plans to sell them at tailgate parties. The sausages are reportedly twice the size of regular hot dogs, and cost $4 a pound, or $79.95 for a "tailgater pack," which comes with Carlos Danger stick-on mustaches.
