You can read the rest of this tale at the link. Only in Alaska, folks.
The giant foam hot dog in a bun that Luc Mehl and friends stumbled across this spring on the edge of Alaska nowhere left him haunted.
... From a distance, Mehl said, no one could quite believe their eyes, but as they drew closer it became obvious that yes, indeed, there was a 9-foot-long hot dog on a 7-foot-long bun beached like a dead whale on the shore of Cook Inlet.
Being an environmentally minded group of hikers, Mehl and friends decided they should get rid of the litter. So they tried to burn it up. That was a mistake.
