Kid In Hot Dog Suit Loses Pants And Race, But Is Still A Wiener In Our Hearts

Well, hot dog! This kid really mustard the courage to keep going, even though he couldn't ketchup with his opponents. While we don't relish seeing him fall down, we think he's a real champion for never giving up.

The Kansas City Royals host a Hot Dog Derby during home games at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, where contestants dressed in hot dog costumes race on foot, according to MLB.com. On Sunday, it was Kids Day at the stadium so children ran the derby instead of adults, ABC 7 reported.

This didn't seem to work out so well for the kid in the mustard outfit, however.

Although the little guy had a great start, his costume appeared to be too big for him, causing the pants to fall down and trip him. After he took several stumbles, a staff member came to his aid and helped him cross the finish line to raucous applause from fans in the stands.

We salute this kid's determination! Also, thanks to this guy, for helping the kid cover up his buns.

  • The classic Poisson d'Avril trick

    If someone asks for help on an assignment, go over, pat them on the back, then stick a paper fish there using some tape. Just like in Quebec.

    Have the principal turn on the earthquake signal once every half hour. Tell all the kids to get down and cover their heads. Walk out of the room and switch places with another teacher, pretending nothing has changed. They'll know something's up, but they'll still be confused.

  • Talk But Say Nothing

    Start teaching by moving your lips but let no sound emerge from them. See how long you can keep this up. Then, on April Fools' Day proper, hit the students with a pop quiz based on the things you DIDN'T say.

    Surprise your students with a quiz and make sure the first letter in each word spells out "April Fool." THEN let them know that the test didn't count at all. H/T Proteacher.net
  • The Quarter Trick

    Run a coloured pencil around the edges of a quarter. Then dare a student to run it from their forehead all the way to the edge of their nose without dropping it. Tell them if they manage to do it, they can keep the quarter. Then laugh as the student volunteers walk down the hallway with lines down their faces. H/T Reddit
  • You All Failed

    Post students' grades. But before you do that, weigh the most recent test as 90 per cent of a student's mark and ensure they all failed it. The sheet should read "F" for every single student. Some will catch on, but it will certainly give the high achievers a scare.
