"Meat" the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile This Weekend

We're not sure about that famous song in which we wish we were a meat tube. Seriously -- do you really want your ultimate end to happen by being laid in a roll, doused in mustard, and eaten?

No... what we really do want, however, is to trade in our used Toyota for the sweet ride that is the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. Just think how cool it would be to cruise A1A in the Wienermobile, waving to the bikini-wearing crowd and imploring them to "eat our meat."

Unfortunately, the Wienermobile's not for sale, but it is available for

photo ops this weekend, when it makes several South Florida stops.


the Wienermobile doesn't actually give out wieners (we know... we know),

the friendly hotdoggers who drive the awesome meat wagon will give away

coupons, play fun games with you ("hide the salami" is not one of them,

folks), and give out those iconic wiener whistles.

Here's the South Florida schedule. If you go, be sure to say hi to hotdoggers Hot Diggity Holly and Lots of Ketchup Lisa -- they're looking forward to "meating" you!
