You know this had to be a strange site on the side of the road.At least it werent the big 1 built on a freightliner chassis.
One thing concerns me;
For Kurzejewski, veteran of hundreds of tows over the years, Sunday's experience was a new one.
"I've pulled out a lot of vehicles," he said. "But that's the first wiener I've ever pulled out."
Wonder how many kids that poor fella has
That last line is the funniest thing I have read all week.
This maybe not off topic. A few years back I ran into the Wienermobile (had to get the grandson a wienie whistle, I still have mine when the Wiener was mounted on a Packard) They gave me a postcard showing the history of the vehicle, the first one (1931) looks like the wiener is mounted on a '27 T frame.
Ray, Tim is right on the money . . I'm still laughing. I thought it, but Tim said it.
I wonder how much flack that fella got from his peers after reading what he was quoted as saying? If someone I knew said something like that to the press, I'd never let him live it down!
Alex, any chance you might scan and post that picture?
I wish I could but I have no idea what happened to it, but I pulled up the Oscar Meyer (Golda's son, think about that one) website, the one they're showing is not the one I remember. It looks like it has steel artillery wheels where as the on the postcard had wire wheels either 27 T or early Model A & the vehicle was a lot smaller.
The present Wienermobile is 7,000 pounds & is a fully equiped luxury motorhome & the female crew deserve it.
And yes George Osgood deserves the Pullitzer for the article (laughed my ass off) & I'm sure Caylen Goudie's gotta be a blonde.
One more thing, the Wienie Whistle is a lot cheesier than the old ones. Waxing nostalgic does anyone remember the Hienz Pickle pin, we used to wear them on our caps.
I still have a few heinz pickle pins, my father was a sales rep for them for about 30 yrs.
How 'bout posting a picture of that '27 wiener?
A hilarious account of last week's unfortunate accident with the Weinermobile in Pennsylvania.
