Behold the sublime grandeur that is the Phillie Phanatic's hot dog gun

Most mascots are content to launch t-shirts into the crowd. But  the Phillie Phanatic is not most mascots.

As he's done for several years now, the Phanatic was giving away hot dogs at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday with the use of a gun that itself looks like a colossal hot dog. The only way the device could be more impressive is if it actually tasted like one, too.

We're pretty sure there's nothing the Phanatic can't do, so he's probably working on that.
