Do you value your life? No? Well then head down to West Virginia where you can get “The Homewrecker” hot dog at HillBilly Hot Dogs. I’m just going to quote Al Dente as far as the ingredients go:
“The Homewrecker is a 3.5-lb. weapon of cardiovascular mass destruction. They start with a deep-fried 15″, 1-pound dog and top it with peppers, onions, nacho cheese, chili sauce, jalapenos, mustard, ketchup, coleslaw, tomatoes, lettuce, and shredded cheese.”
Now, “The Homewrecker” can be yours for free if you can eat it in under 4 minutes. Under 12 minutes, it’ll still cost you $14.99 but you’ll get a free t-shirt out of the deal. Attempt to eat this at all, however, and you’ll most likely die.
I do love all the various, “Eat this and you’ll dine for free!” marketing gimmicks though. It’s a win-win for restaurants. People with blustery bravado will always try and eat it, and in most cases fail; but they’ll have a story to tell and you’ll have 20 bucks in the cash register.
We even have one down in Morris, Illinois at “R” Place, a truck stop slash creepiest damn restaurant I’ve ever been to ever. Littered with old toys and marionettes (which occasionally, randomly spring to life!!!), you can try and eat their Premium Ethyl burger.
Although, the Ethyl has nothing on The Homewrecker. At a measely two-pounds of fresh ground hamburger covered with toppings and served on a homemade bun, it’ll only set you back $17.95. Ethyl is is served with a timer, though. If you finish in under an hour you get it for free, along with your name on a plaque that hangs on the wall.
If you lose? Your soul gets trapped in the aquarium of marionettes that dances for a nickel at the entrance to the restaurant.
