Pondering...
...the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile.

Why?

Because it's been a long term joke in my family. I used to drive almost 2 hours to work, THROUGH Seattle. Always through the worst of the traffic. I was bored, often.

One day, after I had called the SO (significant other) many times... I saw it.

The Oscar Meyer Weinermobile.

I HAD to let him know.

****

It became a running joke. "I'm busy... so don't call unless you see the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile."

Always good for a laugh.

****

Today, when I was at work, I came into the lab & the office manager told me that my phone had rung. It was the SO.

"You'll never guess what happened."

"What?"

"I saw the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile!"

I thought for sure he was joking. After all, it's one of our long term jokes.

No way. He really did! It was in Seattle today. Although I read on a website that there are 6 of them.

Ah, the sweet thoughts of childhood....

P.S. Interesting, isn't it? The driver says it's "like you're always in a parade". I guess no wild pickups, or blowjobs, there! LOL!

I've seen it a few times around Portland, once every couple of years or so. About 3 weeks ago my son and I saw it parked at Target in Vancouver. They weren't doing any promo or anything - they were shopping! LOL
It really is a kick to see it. It looks pretty plush inside.

Cute story. It is always fun to read about "inside" jokes and how they got to be inside.

Okay, I had never heard of the Weinermobile prior to reading your post, and then just today I saw a commercial on TV with the Weinermobile!

... Now I want to see it too.
