I feel queasy writing this, but: A year ago this video went viral. If you’ve not seen it, it’s a guy at a Mets game methodically using a drinking straw to hollow out a hot dog. He then uses the hot dog itself as a straw to drink his beer. As I’m typing this bile is coming up the back of my throat.
Well, Oscar Mayer saw an opportunity, a greenlit a small production run of silicone straws shaped like hot dogs. “Using a delicious Oscar Mayer wiener as its muse,” the company writes, “the Oscar Mayer Hot Dog Straw mirrors the same size and color of a delicious, cooked dog and is made using food safe soft silicone to replicate the feel of a real Oscar Mayer hot dog.”

The Hot Dog Straws sold out almost immediately.
