The Infield is the baseball-themed Sherman Oaks restaurant that is, as you may recall, the spiritual home of the Twinkie Dog, a frankfurter sandwiched between two deep-fried Twinkies and decorated with aerosol cheese, which, again, is better than it sounds: The salt, fat and oil do wonders for taming the creation's abundant sweetness, although probably not for your triglycerides. The Infield recently posted a help-wanted notice on Craigslist advertising for a Web designer to build them a "viral amazing" MySpace page, incidentally sneaking advanced word of a fried-banana-and-peanut-butter hot dog that is apparently out of the R&D stage. I hope the amazing viruses are kept separate from the hot dogs.
