Caption contest!

Thursday, Jun 26, 2014

* From a reader…

A photo, in case you want a caption contest or a question of a day, from the Taste of Chicago preview held [yesterday] in the Daley Center.

I wondered how many multiples of the quoted price a “Mayor Daley ‘Tribute Dog’” finally costs when the overruns are done.

How many napkins do you need when you are done with the overruns?

How many unnecessary ingredients were hired to be on it?

Etc.

* The photo…

    If you want it today you have to hire a nephew to order it for you.


  2. - OneMan - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:07 am:

    Just out of frame there was someone screaming about why they didn’t off a Rahm and his billionaire friends dog..


  3. - train111 - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:07 am:

    The “Mayor Daley Tribute Dog”–all the ingredients necessary to fill a pot-hole and then some.


  4. - dupage dan - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:10 am:

    So, just wondering, did the alligator smoke before being turned into a sausage?

    How does one infuse cheddar cheese?

    Seriously, do they post the ingredients in that tribute dog? I wouldn’t touch it.


  5. - A guy... - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:13 am:

    That line is as long as it should be.


  6. - Norseman - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:16 am:

    Ingredients: Made from choice cuts of Irish baloney.


  7. - Norseman - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:18 am:

    Sale price on Tribute dogs. Seems like Chicagoans don’t have an appetite for a Daley Tribute Dog like they used to.


  8. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:19 am:

    “The Mayor Daley Tribute Dog-50% Pork and 50% Bologna!”


  9. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:22 am:

    Norseman-great minds, etc.

    Does the Oswego Willy for Governor Crew have a Cannoli tent up there?


  10. - Loop Lady - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:22 am:

    100% pure pork with a side order of singles for the parking meters…


  11. - Amalia - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:23 am:

    Mayor Daley Tribute Dog. warning, contains fawning sycophant sausage.


  12. - a drop in - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:38 am:

    Order Mayor Daley Tribute Dog here; pickup by the parking meter.


  13. - Jose Abreu's next homer - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:44 am:

    When you order it they instantly forget what goes on it.


  14. - Joan P. - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:47 am:

    To which Mayor Daley does it pay tribute?

    Either way, it’s probably got a lot of pork in it.


  15. - Nearly Normal - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:56 am:

    Tribute dog is cheaper but it’s the relish and mustard add-ons that really cost!


  16. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 12:17 pm:

    So I got my Daley Dog and I’m sitting down to enjoy it, when, as I’m lifting it to take a bite, I notice that the mustard is poured like little X’s down the dog. Then all of a sudden, Frank Kruesi comes out of nowhere and grabs my hotdog and throws it in the trash.

    If you order one, tell them to hold the Meigs Field Tribute sauce.


  17. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 12:20 pm:

    “Forget the relish on that Cheddar Bacon Sausage. Just sprinkle some Lipitor on it.”


  18. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 12:23 pm:

    I wonder if Snoop Dogg will ever get a “Dogg Tribute Dog?”

    “Tribute Dogg Dog…”

    “Snoop Doggy Dogg Tribute Dog. Dog.”


  19. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 12:23 pm:

    Off-menu item: Bruce Rauner Tribute Lobster Dog.


  20. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 12:25 pm:

    “Does that Smoked Alligator Sausage come with a complimentary pair of shoes?”


  21. - Roadbuilder - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 12:52 pm:

    “(But for $10, you can get you’se a nice building permit)”


  22. - CLJ - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 1:44 pm:

    Might cost $5 now, but the REAL cost of that hot dog will hit you when it is long gone.


  23. - MrJM (@MisterJayEm) - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 1:50 pm:

    The “Mayor Daley ‘Tribute Dog’” seems fine while you’re eating it, but after it passes you and your family will deal with its crippling aftermath for decades to come.

    – MrJM


  24. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 2:05 pm:

    “Ummm, that Mayor Daley Tribute Dog? Is that made from free-range Republicans?”


  25. - Old Shepherd - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 2:25 pm:

    “Does it come with fava beans and a nice chianti?”


  26. - LizPhairTax - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 2:27 pm:

    I’ll have mine scrutined.


  27. - OneMan - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 3:04 pm:

    Yeah, you pay $4 for it now, but the other $20 is fianced over 20 years…


  28. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 3:24 pm:

    Coming Soon! The “Governor Quinn Diversity Dog!”
    Contains 25% Pork, 25% Chicken, 25% Baloney, and 25% Python. Just one of these babies and you won’t wanna eat til tomorrow!

    Serves you right. You shouldn’t have been sitting there eating it in the middle of the night. lol


  30. - lake county democrat - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 4:05 pm:

    Ingredients: hot dog, ketchup.


  31. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 6:21 pm:

    “Do you have a Carl Sandburg Tribute dog, made with ground up ‘big shoulders?’”


  32. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 6:22 pm:

    “What’s dat ‘infused’ dere, pal? Is dat like dynamite is infused?”


  33. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 10:30 pm:

    - AA -, there is not a Cannoli tent this year, but if I win avid become Governor, there will be “Governor’s Cannoli” stand, all proceeds towards a charity.

    “Caption?”

    Tribute Dog;

    When you ask what’s on it, the server mumbles, then laughs, then wags his finger at you, “den youse get yer dog and get out”


  34. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 10:32 pm:

    Tribute Dog;

    You go through 3 buffers, send a “sealed” payment for the dog, and if accepted you get your dog with 4 fundraising tickets, that no Daley knows about nuthin’


  35. - Quizzical - Thursday, Jun 26, 14 @ 11:30 pm:

    Only $5 upfront, but an extra 75 cents every time you park for the next 70 years.
