When Jason Kelce walked into the Chicago restaurant where Poochie Rollins works on Wednesday, Rollins had some insults ready for Taylor Swift’s boyfriend’s brother, who doubles as the Philadelphia Eagles center.

Rollins, of course, had nothing against Kelce personally. People come in to The Wiener’s Circle for the specific experience of being roasted by employees, and Rollins has been dishing out insults for 25 years. She is a professional.
