On the heels of yesterday's announcement that the Chicago-style hotdog would be invading the West Coast, Vienna Beef unveiled the world's longest weiner yesterday at the Taste. Measuring a whopping 37 feet, two inches (although Vienna claimed it was 38 feet), the dog was delivered in a 35-foot poppy seed bun, with all the standard toppings. Unfortunately, no one gets to eat this meal -- but Vienna donated an equivalent amount of hot dogs to charity. [Thanks, Pete]
