Meanwhile, in Wienermobile News ....
An Oscar Mayer Wienermobile crashed into a pole in central Pennsylvania on Sunday, according to the Associated Press. The self-propelled 27-foot hot dog on wheels slid off a road and into a utility pole in Enola PA, near Harrisburg. We suggest that accident investigators look for drips of slippery mustard.

The front of the weenie roll crumbled in this pole-ish sausage mishap, but no injuries were reported, and there’s no evidence the driver was hot-dogging. The crash snarled local traffic, since rubberneckers relish this sort of thing.

Oscar Mayer has several Wienermobiles, used to promote and advertise tubesteak products. Probably 10 wieners and 8 rolls, right?

Here in DC an NTSB spokesman was unavailable, and we could not reach former Wienermobile driver Paul Ryan for comment.

Dog vs. Dog

In 2009, Oscar Mayer ran an ad campaign claiming its Jumbo Beef Franks beat out Ball Park Franks in a national taste test. Ball Park Franks manufacturer Sara Lee countered by claiming that Oscar Mayer did not cook Ball Park wieners correctly during the tests and falsely stated that its Oscar Mayer tube steaks are “100 percent pure beef” when they are not.

Sara Lee is suing Kraft, accusing the rival firm of “willful, false, misleading, deceptive, defamatory, and unfair commercial advertising.” The suit has reached U.S. District Court in Chicago, and newspapers have been serving up hot, juicy puns:
