Missing wiener

In Search of a Missing Wiener

ROCK HILL, S.C. — The owner of South Carolina eatery is looking for his 10-foot weenie.

Authorities say a sign of a giant smiling hot dog was reported missing May 10 from the Ebenezer Grill. The smiling hot dog has welcomed customers for the past 18 months, after owner Loyd Ardrey purchased it to replace the aging dog that had adorned the roof for years.

When Ardrey arrived at work early in the morning on May 10, the 30-pound aluminum sign was gone.

Authorities suspect prank-playing high school students may be behind the wiener sign disappearance. A week after the sign's disappearance, a giant pig that sits front of Bucko's Restaurant on was dragged and taken to a local high school.

York County police said students at Rock Hill High School had been identified as the culprits in the pig theft case. Stealing the fiberglass pig could be considered grand larceny, which is a felony punishable with a sentence of up to 10 years. But police say the pig theft suspects who have not been publicly identified because they are minors will only have to pay for damages.

Meanwhile, Ardey is considering buying another sign for his restaurant. But he'd rather have his sign returned.

"I just want my weenie back," Ardrey said in reports.

This makes me yearn for the Wiener Dog races of yore... :-)

Yeah, I too get a bit nostalgic about the wiener races of old.
