Wiener Wars!

Legal beef: Sara Lee, Kraft escalate wiener war: "The nation's two largest hot dog makers are taking their legal beefs Monday to federal court in Chicago, where a judge will determine whether Oscar Mayer or Ball Park franks broke false-advertising laws in their efforts to become top dog.

Legal arguments in the long-ranging wiener war between Chicago companies pit Sara Lee Corp, which makes Ball Park franks, against Kraft Foods Inc., which makes Oscar Mayer. The case could clarify how far companies nationwide can go when boasting that their product is better than a competitor's."

Hat tip to Art Scott.

Saw it on the news this morning and laughed until I cried--we have such important stuff to fight over. Of course, I remember when the song went, "Everybody doesn't like something, but nobody doesn't like Sara Lee!"
