Weenie World--WienerSnicker--Whatever!

Dear Marketing Department @ Wienerschnitzel:

Have I got a marketing campaign for you!  All you need are about 5 or 6 children around the ages of 3-10 years old--and we've got some perfect candidates for 2 of your children--a hot dog, a chair, a mic, and a camera!

Scene:  A white and empty room with a chair in the middle.  Seat a child on the chair with a hot dog in his/her hand, and ask him/her to say "Wienerschnitzel."  Keep that camera rolling and catch their EVERY attempt at pronunciation!  Your Slogan:  "Wienerschnitzel.  Hard to say.  Easy to eat."

(This was a discussion between my children about where to eat for lunch one afternoon recently)

Little:  Weenie World...oh. Wait.  Ummmmm...

Big:  It's not 'Weenie World.'  It's Weenie-Shitzel.

Little:  OH!  I got it!  It's WienerSnicker!

...........and this went on for at least 20 minutes.......without ANY success!


  1. call it what you want..... it's always a good mustard dog!
