Foie Dog

Having solved its crime and corruption problems, the city of Chicago is going after the true criminal scum in its midst.

The city issued its first foie gras fine to a hot dog seller of all people, accusing “Hot Doug’s” of violating a Chicago ban by lacing its specialty dogs with the duck liver delicacy.

Doug Sohn, who runs Hot Doug’s “The Sausage Superstore and Encased Meat Emporium,” agreed to pay $250 Thursday for the first-time offense.

Sohn had been openly serving foie gras-laced hot dogs since the ordinance took effect in August. He says he knew about the rule — when he got a warning letter from the city, he had it framed and placed on his counter.

He could have faced up to a $500 dollar fine under the ordinance, Health Department spokesman Tim Hadac said.

I wish this guy sold these hotdogs online, I’d buy one in a second.  I can’t imagine that foie gras would taste all that good encased in a sausage with ground up cow anus, but I’d give it a bite just on general principle.
