The only question is: What took them so long?

The St. Paul Saints are being a bit devilish at the expense, roasting soon-to-be-former Congressman Anthony Weiner in observance of National Hot Dog Day.

On July 23, the fun-first minor league baseball team the first 1,501 adult fans in attendance will receive a commemorative pair of Tweeting Wiener Boxer Shorts.

The boxers are adorned with an image on the front of a blue bird photographing a wiener with his phone.

In keeping with the theme that evening, fans will choose two lucky winners of a trip to 2012's Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in New York.

Fans can tweet a photo of their best-looking wiener from the grill. The shots will be displayed on the Midway Stadium video board for fan judging.
