In a pickle: The Wienermobile crashes into a house in Racine, Wisconsin

Here's a news flash on the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile front. One of the beloved motorized hot dogs crashed into a house in Racine, Wisconsin. It seems the 22 year-old driver was trying to turn around on a dead end street, thought she had the weenie in reverse but actually had it in drive and then hit the gas, causing a fair amount of damage to the dwelling. She then took off without leaving a name or number which was probably not the smartest move since there are a finite number of Wienermobiles and they do tend to stick out in a crowd. Check out the news report here:

I love hard hitting news. "You bet your buns I'll be Frank." That sound you hear is Walter Cronkite spinning in his grave. I have a lot of wiener comments running through my head. I will pass on this.......

Yes, Bill. Once you've made it in the Racine, Wisconsin TV newswriting beat, you can write your own ticket.
