Just In Time For Cookout Season: Oscar Meyer Bacon Dogs

There are so many parts of so many animals in this hot dog! I say that with equal parts of excitement and fear, excitement because I know and accept what makes hot dogs delicious — many parts of many animals, just recognize it and move on — and fear because I imagine a fight to the death between a chicken, a turkey and a pig...and an animated slab of bacon, I guess, resulting in Oscar Meyer's brand-new bacon dog. Is the media going hog-wild? You bet your chicken-ham.

"We know Americans love bacon, and we know they love hot dogs, so it seemed like the perfect time for us to introduce our first hot dog made with bacon," the company said in a statement. The logic is watertight, it's very hard to argue with those facts.

Following this formula, we expect them to roll out Cupcakewurst in time for Oktoberfest.
