FREAK Shots: Mispriced Hot Dogs

Tom Glickman sent us this photo at a Nathan’s restaurant. One hot dog will cost you $1.99. But two will cost you $3.99 — and three will cost you $5.99. As Tom writes: “Not the most egregious mistake in pricing, but most curious that one is overcharged by a penny for every additional hot dog you purchase.”
Hmm. You’d think Nathan’s, which sponsors the July 4th hot-dog-eating contest at Coney Island, would offer a Kobayashi discount.
