Billboard: When it comes to hot dogs, this is our turf. (Wienerschnitzel mascot sprays mustard on a fire hydrant.)

I’m not sure what annoys me more about this ad: the fact that the joke is tasteless (which is an oddly appropriate phrase, considering it’s about food), or the fact that it’s equating something they serve (the mustard) with urine.

“Come here, our mustard tastes like piss!” Yeah, that’s encouraging.

    Hmm, I wonder what it says about me that I remembered the pirates from that Quizno’s commercial, but completely forgot the rats?

    I’m glad you left it. It certainly cracked me the hell up. Even won the coveted Quote of the Day award.

    OoooooOOOOOooooooooh.

    Umm… Yaaaarrrrr!
