Wienermobile gets lucky with Wisconsin house, but will it last?

July 18, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Yesterday afternoon the Oscar Mayer wiener mobile was hanging out in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, relishing some good old mid-western sunshine but got sandwiched into a tight spot instead. The driver was trying to turn the Wienermobile around in a driveway on a dead end street, but mistakenly put the tranny in reverse when she hit the gas, crashing the vehicle right into a home. The Wienermobile was hopelessly left in a pickle, wedged under the deck of the home. I kind of don’t blame the driver, it must be difficult to tell which is the front and back end of a vehicle that looks like a hotdog?
Fortunately no one was home and the driver wasn’t hurt. A spokesperson for Oscar Mayer said insurance will cover the mess and the Wienermobile and the house plan to see each other again soon. Okay I made up that last part. Company officials say Oscar Mayer’s fleet of 27-foot-long hot dogs on wheels, which seats six, travels across the country promoting the brand’s line of hot dog, bologna and deli meats.

    This article being published was a bigger accident. Check your facts and proof your work.

    “The driver was trying to turn the Wienermobile around in a driveway on a dead end street, but mistakenly put the tranny in reverse when she hit the gas, crashing the vehicle right into a home.”

    If was in reverse, she would NOT have hit the house. It was an accident. Every freaking American has been in a car accident. Leave the poor girl alone.
