fans of the wiener

Only in Wisconsin can you make a facebook post about where the Wienermoblie is going to be, and wind up in a parking lot with a bunch of friends a few hours later eating hot dogs.

I posted the rest on facebook this time 'cuz it's a bunch of people you don't know. But you're welcome to be nosy...meet the husband if you like...

Our friend Francee, on the left, is up from Miami. Her mother volunteers for Echo, who hired the Wienermobile to make an appearance and draw a crowd. Francee begged them to take her for a ride around the parking lot when they arrived, but they said they couldn't for insurance reasons. "No one has to know! she pleaded. I guess she needed to grease some palms to make that happen.

If you want to see some older weiner shots, go here. I promise no congressmen. But I have to say, this one is my personal favorite! Taken at the Milwaukee Art Museum with a Holga camera and a Polaroid back. (Mental note: search out more Polaroid film.)

Ok, that's plenty of wiener for now. Nothing says there won't be more in the future. I do live in Oscar Mayer territory. Why this particular vehicle has California plates is beyond me. Blasphemous even.

Funny. I am surprised you have time to post with all that homework you are supposed to be doing. B

LOL. I don't think I've seen one of those since middle school. It's good to know that there are still weiners driving around town.
