Major League Baseball stadiums have so many treats to offer: hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos, Human Growth Hormone. Just in time for Opening Day, Poag Mahone's in Chicago has combined three out of four of those in the Ballpark Burger: a hot dog topped hamburger, with a side of nachos.

Mike: This is a fine duet. It's like Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers doing Islands in the Stream.

Ian: What part of the Kenny Rogers does this meat come from?

Peter: I'm removing the hot dogs. Too hard to eat.

Molly: They should have done a hot dog rinse. Like vermouth with a martini, just rubbed the hot dog on the burger to get its smoky essence, then thrown it away.

Robert: Now I'm ready for the seventh inning retch.

Peter: This isn't right. Combining the hot dog with the hamburger.

Mike:It's like the End Times.

Ian:Yeah, I think this is prophesied in Lipidations 34:3.
