The Savage Weiner

In using his secret decoder ring to interpret the latest Pastor Swank message (“Muslim murders global drink more Ovaltine made from womb babies in outrageous macabre”), Gavin at Sadly, No! has the courage to ask the tough questions:
[W]hether teh international Muslim doKKKtor conspiratorzz drive to work in Oscar Mayer Wienermobiles. …That very well could be.
Sadly, yes!

I actually got to ride in the Weinermobile one Mardi Gras. Bastids won’t let you smoke, though. Ironic?
I photographed the wienermobile participating in the ’04 Chicago Gay Pride Parade. That was the day irony died.
An Arizona Highway Patrol officer pulled over Oscar Mayer’s Wienermobile on Wednesday when its YUMMY license plates came up stolen, but the mix-up was soon sorted out and the famous hot dog was released.
“The officer quickly realized that it was not a ‘hot’ hot dog,” Oscar Mayer spokeswoman Syd Lindner told
As it turns out, the plates were indeed stolen back in February in Columbia, Mo. The company obtained a replacement YUMMY plate that month and notified police in Missouri. However, when the Arizona officer ran the plate to make sure the 27-foot-long, 11-foot-tall hot dog on wheels was street legal, it still came back as stolen, with a note saying it was OK if found on the Weinermobile itself.
It’s not the first time the Wienermobile was in a pinch. “It’s been pulled over before,” Lindner said, though it’s usually just for fun and to take a closer look. “In this case, they were doing their job and looking out for our best interest,” she added.
The Wienermobile in question was one of six on the road for a promotion in which contestants sing the Oscar Mayer jingle for a chance to appear in a commercial and win “American Idol” tickets.
Marq, you gave me my first laugh of the day, and damned if it wasn’t loud.
Yes, Marq, great line.
The Wienermobile was parked near my sons’ preschool some years back, so by popular demand, I stopped nearby and unloaded my carpool to goggle at it. The first remark was, “They’re not kosher, though, you know.” Not bad for a four-year-old!
