The Wienermobile makes abrupt house call

Wienermobile wreck

Is that the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile sticking out of your house, or are you just happy to see me? On Friday, the famed promotional vehicle crashed through the garage and deck of a residence in Mount Pleasant, Wis. If it reached the kitchen, there's a chance it slid inside someone's buns. That's a possibility I relish. Unfortunately Oscar Mayer himself isn't alive to savor all the free (albeit pun-filled and not 100 percent positive) publicity. As for Walter Cronkite, well, if he hadn't died on Friday, seeing this kind of story passed off as headline news just might have killed him. (Photo credit: The Associated Press.)
