What do you think of when you see this?

1) A Tasty Treat?
2) Mr. Binkles, your fox terrier?
3) Before/after slides from a Viagra clinical trial?
4) A discarded photo from an old college textbook on hygiene?
5) Baltimore?
6) The tapeworm you caught after you ate Kasten's brisket?
7) A Foam-Finger-Waving Fanboy's dooty?

What do you do when you see this?

1) Salivate?
2) Wince?
3) Take your wallet out of your back pocket?
4) Check the bottom of your shoes?
5) Laugh nervously, then step away from the computer slowly?

  • All I can say is that the helmet sundaes better look more appetizing than this. Memo to Stan: the helmet referred to in the sundae is for the head above the waist. Your pretzel designers were obviously modeling theirs on a below-the-waist pretzel. Either that, or this is not the production pretzel but rather something they're using to test the flush capacity in the suites.

    They should have had these at RFK, they would have made the place look almost classy!

  • OK-

    I won't have it this time. This is a real, honest attempt to do something cool, something team-specific. Do NOT get on them for this and try to pretend that the lame lack of trying at RFK was remotely acceptable. This will be a big hit. There is a limit to snark sometimes.

  • Whatever.

    I'll make sure to be nice when they design something that doesn't look like it passed through a sphincter.

  • Excellent.

    All I needed was a reasonble response.

    Of course, your reasonable response will mean that I won't be able to eat one for a long time, either.

  • When they said they were going to try it, I thought it was a good idea.

    I just hope that that's a prototype!

  • What's gross is, even if it is not a prototype, I swear my kids will beg for them.

  • Check out the pic on the top of Deadspin right now Chris. It seems Mr. Leitch has a soft spot in his heart for our wobegone team.

  • I've been saving that one

    I believe that's what the owner of the item pictured above said too.

  • dammit you just made me laugh in the library. never underestimate the power of sphincter related humor.

  • For those of you that enjoy toilet humour, and aren't easily offended by Jesus jokes, this might make you laugh. Not sure why the pretzel reminded me of this.

  • I hope Stan didn't blow an O ring coming up with the curly W pretzel idea. Personally, I like it. It's Washington Nationals specific and a solid attempt to create something special for Nats fans. I'm still waiting for the Nats helmet sundaes but this is a step in the right direction. Twenty bucks says Dan Snyder steals this idea and starts selling R pretzels at FedUp Field next season.

  • I know Stan wants to deemphasize it, but now may be a good time to fall back on the interlocking DC.
