Five Ways to Play With Your Wiener

We've managed to go without mentioning Anthony Weiner and all the wiener jokes that go with him... until now.

We figure if the president can mention Weiner, we can too. Unlike POTUS, we're not calling for the congressman's resignation; we're trying to help him out. We've compiled five ways to play with your wiener that both Democrats and Republicans can agree are delicious and scandal-free.



5. This hot dog octopus is made by cutting tentacles into your wiener with a knife before boiling. The hot dog tentacles will coil when cooked.


 4. Roll cooked pieces of hot dogs into sushi rice and seaweed to make these hot dog sushi rolls. Mix wasabi and mustard together for a dipping sauce.




3. Roll canned croissant or dinner roll dough around a hot dog to "mummify" it, then bake to make these little mummy hot dogs.
