Oscar Mayer, Revisited

NEWS FLASH! July 17, 9:01 p.m. ET


OSCAR MAYER WIENERMOBILE
CRASHES INTO WISCONSIN HOME

MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. – One southern Wisconsin homeowner is probably not in love with the Oscar Mayer wiener. The famed hot dog's Wienermobile crashed Friday into the deck and garage of a home in Mount Pleasant, about 35 miles south of Milwaukee.

Police said the driver was trying to turn the Wienermobile around in the driveway and thought she was moving in reverse. But she instead went forward and hit the home. It sat in the driveway as if it were stuck in the garage Friday afternoon.

No one was home and no one was injured. No citations were immediately issued.

Both the home and vehicle suffered moderate damage, which Oscar Mayer spokeswoman Sydney Lindner says insurance will cover.

Police hadn't been able to speak to the homeowner as of early Friday evening.


I THOUGHT YOU'D WANT TO KNOW. I GUESS I'M GLAD I'M NOT AN OSCAR MAYER WIENER AFTER ALL!

Kim,
I do miss your post. I start my day off with you and have a good laugh. It is fun to find that others have the same issues I do and can laugh at them. My DH makes pancakes on Sat. morning and fills the house up with smoke. I hope that you are just busy and not posting. I guess I should have stayed on QHollow and then I would know if you were ok.

My honey saw that report, and told me stories of when the Oscar Meyer Weiner mobile would come to his area in LA every summer, how exciting it was for all the kids in the neighborhood, but in all the years of living in Chicago, and Sacramento, I never once saw it, except in ads, what about any of you?
