NY mayor's pun pain: 'Who wrote this s***?'

Plain spoken New York mayor Michael Bloomberg has veered away from a pun-laden prepared script to exclaim "who wrote this s**t?"

Bloomberg became increasingly agitated at the numerous hot dog puns written into his speech for the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4.

He finally snapped after saying: "One of their dogged pursuers will finally ketchup, cut the mustard and be pronounced wiener. No question it's going to be a dog fight."

That was met with noticeable groans from the crowd.

"Just think of how many we got into one sentence. That was really impressive. Who wrote this s**t," he said.

The contest was won by Joey Chestnut, who ate 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes.
