    The pictures tell the story.

    Now I'll get out of the way so G Wiv can try his jokes on you all.

    What an honor! Congrats, Gary. I didn't know you were Greek.

    I have about 500 jokes involving "Gary" and "Sausage" at the ready, but I'll defer.

    EC,

    You took the words out of my mouth, so to speak. I thought he was Roman, not Greek.†

    Hats off to G Wiv.

    HI,

    In case you cannot read the chalk board:

    The Gary Wiviott (Today's Celebrity Sausage)
    Gyros Sausage with Tzatziki, Kalamata Olives and Feta Cheese
    $6.00


    You should have offered to subsize the price to keep it under $5. :D

    Regards,

    I heard that Gary was speechless when he walked in and saw his sausage. Never mind, just a wishful rumor.

    Ed,

    It's just my head is spinning from both the thrill of Celebrity Sausage and the wealth of potential double entendres. :)

    I was surprised, thanks to my wonderfully sneaky wife, and quite honored to be the Hot Doug's Celeb Sausage*.

    M'th'su brought bachelor's kimchee to Hot Doug's for us to taste. Smelled a but pungent, but had a nice light, fresh taste, though I imagine it will 'funk up' with age. :)

    A great thrill, always happy to expose my sausage, celeb or otherwise, to the public. :roll:

    Enjoy,
    Gary

    We need to remember the important thing is whether or not Ms. Wiv is happy with Gary's sausage.

    And she looks plenty happy in the picture to me... :twisted:

    Congrats to our new celebrity!

    Gary:

    I must say I was surprised to find you still posting pictures of yourself holding your sausage on the internet after that whole awkward Dateline NBC thing. I guess some people never learn.


    Seriously...Mazeltov!
