'Attack of the Wiener Man' - there's no substitute for a little luck and great timing

Here Come the Mummies are not only dead, they're apparently psychic. Their song, "Attack of the Wiener Man" puts the "i" before the "e," but the timing couldn't be better. The song was recorded long before U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-NY, decided to launch his own attack of the "e" before "i" Weiner Man.

Are the Mummies letting this opportunity pass them by? Of course not. They're marketing, with help from PhotoShop, their "Attack of the Wiener Man" t-shirt for $15 on their website:

"He is gonna get you ... and when he does, you are going to look sexy in this classic ringer shirt. As part of a public service announcement (in conjunction with the term's of Spaz's parole) we are putting this one on sale for a limited time. A portion of proceeds will go towards making society a little more accepting of grab-ass congressmen."

The video captures them playing the tune on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom radio show. It has nothing whatsoever to do with a New York congressman. Not when it was recorded, that is. Here's our story about the band's April gig in Punta Gorda.

Here's the recorded studio version minus the Bob and Tom happy talk. Caution: It's loud, and the lyrics might not be entirely safe for work. But that kind of depends on where you work. Just plug in the headphones or turn down the speakers.
