Everyone knows what they say about small … hot dogs.

The Wiener’s Circle, a beloved Chicago hot dog establishment, is now offering some new dog specials inspired by GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

The Trump-inspired dogs are all three inches, a tongue-in-cheek reference to ongoing jokes about the size of Trump’s handsAccording to RedEye, The Wiener’s Circle have put up Trump campaign signs that read “Trump Footlongs: Make Wieners Great Again,” but a “Trump Footlong” hot dog is actually only three inches long. The restaurant has been having a lot fun on Twitter promoting the dogs (and mocking Trumpspeak).

Despite their tiny size, the dogs look pretty delicious, dressed with a pickle, tomato and raw onion.

Customers can purchase the 3-inch Trump footlong for $2.69, but if they’re still hungry after (as we would be), they can go with the Trump Package, which includes two mini dogs with fries and a drink for $8.30, or the Super Pac, which includes four mini dogs and a drink for $12.56.

The topic of Trump’s hands (and, well, other body parts) has resurfaced in recent weeks after Marco Rubio accused him of having small hands. At a recent rally in Virginia, Rubio said, “He’s like 6’2” which is why I don’t understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5’2″. Have you seen his hands? You know what they say about men with small hands? You can’t trust them.”

Shortly after, Trump fired back during the Fox News Debate: “He referred to my hands, if they’re small, something else must be small,” said Trump at the GOP debate. “I guarantee you, there’s no problem.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

It is only three inches long yet it still offers two inches more than what “The Donald” has to offer!

The dog’s are Weiner winners — hands down. It’s exactly what Trump is stuffing down everyones’ throat and calling it a foot long. He’s the worst thing since Nixon’s “I am not a crook”.
