Hot Dog Wielding Paul Bunyan

Paul Bunyan usually wields something manly like an axe.  This statue (in Atlanta, IL) has him carrying a giant hot dog.  It was erected in 1965 to promote a restaurant (also on Route 66) in the Chicago suburbs.  This Bunyan was relocated to Atlanta following the restaurant's closure.

The folks on motorbikes are Australian tourists riding Route 66, who were in the mood for kitsch in the 94° afternoon heat, even in their leathers.
