“You know you’re at a gay barbecue when the wieners taste like shit”

A hot dog riddle (NSFW) is:

Q: How do you known you’re at a gay barbecue?
A: The hot dogs taste like shit.


The joke is about “hot dogs” (or “wieners") resembling male genitalia. The riddle has been cited in print since at least 2000.

Wieners. How many times can this be reported with the wrong punch-line?
It’s: “All the wieners taste like shit.”
