We were pretty pleased with our April Fool’s Day prank, but we pawsitively bow-wow down (new low for dog puns today, guys.) to OnMilwaukee.com. Their ingenious “coverage” of the Brewers’ new mascot, Hank, mauling a racing sausage had us ROTFB (Rolling On The Floor Barking – ok, one more).

“We all tried to get him off of Hot Dog, but it’s actually really difficult to move in these things, and Hank was not letting go of easily the biggest sausage he’d ever seen,” said Haley Kent, who was inside the Chorizo costume for the race. “You have to admire his tenacity and persistence. You have to fear it, too. Actually, mostly fear. But also admire.”
“We didn’t just lose the game; we lost our innocence, as well,” Swailman said, comforting his crying 9-year-old son, dabbing at his watery eyes with one of the four Hank T-shirts he had bought previously that day. “If you can’t trust a cute stray dog in a Brewers jersey to behave himself when in the vicinity of man-sized meat snacks, what can you trust?”
We hope you’re proud of yourself, Hank. ; )
