Two for the price of one? A Yankees fan has gone viral for all the wrong reasons, using his hotdog as a straw to drink his beer Monday night at Yankee Stadium.
Now, you might be thinking: a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do? Wrong.
Instead of using the legitimate straw he had on hand to drink his cup of beer, the Yankees fan decided to make things way more complicated than they needed to be. The fan whipped out a regular straw and began punching a long hole through his hot dog.

The man licked the ends of his straw before picking up his glass of beer and submerging the hotdog in it. Just when things couldn’t seem to get any stranger, he began to use the hotdog as a straw. (RELATED: Try To Watch This Reporter Go Down A Slide And Get Brutally Injured Without Wincing)
