Mayor Bloomberg Makes Too Many Hot Dog Puns, Says, 'Who Wrote This Sh*t?'

At the annual weigh in, he realizes that his speech has way too many puns

In honor of the insane chow down tomorrow at Coney Island that is Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest, the annual weigh in took place earlier today in Manhattan, and New York City's Mayor Bloomberg took the mic.

Naturally, there are a ton of hot dog puns. There's something about him being "frank," about New York being "top dog," and the most pun-filled sentence ever: "[Who knows] if one of their dogged pursuers will finally ketch-up, cut the mustard, and be pronounced weiner? No question, it's going to be a dogfight." Of course, that last one was a bit too much for the mayor. "Just think of how many we got into one sentence that was impressive... Who wrote this sh*t?" he said. Yep, that's the mayor of New York all right.

Watch below to hear his entire, pun-tastic speech.
