Has all this talk about Rep. Anthony Weiner's wiener made you really hungry? Like really hungry for...wieners? Luckily, Der Kommissar now sells Anthony's Weiners; the Daily News reports it's "two beef hot dogs on two slices of French bread brushed with olive oil. Sauerkraut and a pickle come on the side. It costs just $6." Does it come with certitude, though?

The Park Slope eatery proclaims it offers "traditional Austrian experience with a Brooklyn attitude," with "a menu of artisinal Austrian style sausages, craft beers and schnapps." Co-owner Alex Darsey told the News, "We talked about serving the special on a bed of underwear, but we didn't know what the reaction would be to that. The joke kind of told itself."

However it might not be the kind of food for thought customers are interested in—despite being advertised outside the restaurant, Anthony's Weiner's aren't a big seller. But the restaurant promises more Weiner-inspired dishes.
