"Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener. That is what I'd truly like to be-ee-ee. Cuz if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener, everyone would be in love with me!"
Imagine my surprise as I saw this vehicle pass us last fall on I-90/94 near Madison, Wisconsin - where the OM Wienermobile headquarters are located. Growing up as a kid in Wisconsin, you were issued a wiener whistle in grade school and toasted OM hotdogs on a stick at cook-outs and camp-outs. (Maybe you did where you live, too - as Oscar Mayer is a national brand.) The random sighting of the Wienermobile is icing on the cake -- or maybe the mustard on the dog! If you look closely at the larger version, you can see the license plate reads: YUMMY.
