With the Cubs and the LA Dodgers facing down in the NLCS, no one should have been too shocked to see Chicago’s most infamously mouthy hot-dog stand, The Wieners Circle, ensnared in a Twitter jawing match with LA’s most iconic wiener joints, Pink’s Hot Dogs. The feud has been hilariously carrying on more or less since the beginning of the series, but now both it appears both sides have upped the stakes.

Here's the wager: If the Cubs win, Pink's has to serve 108 Chicago-style dogs (as you may have heard, the Cubs' championship drought currently stands at 108 years) plus donate $1,908 to to to manager Joe Maddon's charity (that figure of course in reference to the last year in which the Cubs won it all). If Chicago drops the series, Wiener's Circle will also make a charitable gift, plus serve free Pink's-style dogs for an hour. So much better than the usual, mayoral bets.

Following the Cubs' 10-2 drubbing of the Dodgers on Wednesday night, to even the series at 2-2, the Wiener's Circle was looking characteristically confident:

If you needed another reason to root for the Cubs, there you go. It's bringing out some of the Wiener Circle's finest work since the three-inch Trump wiener.
