Weinermobile Ditched

November 26th, 2013 at 12:54 pm by under Bill's Blog, News, Weather

Weiner Crash!   I came to a pork in the road and wow, I never sausage a slide-off.  Let me be frank, you can’t drive like a hot-dog in this kind of weather.  Driving like a weiner, trying to catchup, won’t cut the mustard on icy roads.   If you relish your vehicle, slow down and take it easy.       Actually, this pic. is making the rounds on the internet.  It’s from Feb. 2008 in Pennsylvania (I saw it on the KING5 website in Seattle).  Ten other cars slid off the road here at the same time and the Weinermobile-driver did a good job avoiding them.  There was no damage to the vehicle.   Oscar Meyer (part of Kraft Foods) has 6 Weinermobiles.

    Maybe the Weinermobile was heading out to the Ball Park. Nah, too cold. Because it was chili ..er … chilly enough out there he really got himself into a pickle, didn’t he!!! But I can’t laugh. We’ve all Bean there.

    I’ve always wanted to take one of those out for a spin, just for the fun of it. I wonder how that thing handles itself in high winds!

      I’m guessing not much down draft.

    Driving like a wiener on icy roads is no way to play catchup! HAHAha. Love the word play! Driving like this will not cause anybody to exclaim, “HOT DOG”

    Should have been a chicken dog and stayed home

    Now. How many of us are going to actually have hot dogs for lunch, since it’s in our heads? I do have some Bratwurst in the fridge, those sound good! Spaghetti is on the menu tonight, I could just cut up some hot dogs in there maybe!

  7. Ned S. (Now in South Holland) says:

    That’s what you get for hot-dogging it on the highways.

  8. Jack says:

    Safety first when in the weiner mobile…. always always ALWAYS get your rubbers inspected before engaging in risky activities…. like driving on icy highways. Seriously, a good tire will save you from having your weiner winched and that in itself pays off tenfold for the cost of a good set of directional tread tires!
