In this case, the answer is actually (d) all of the above.

I saw the original Wienermobile at the Henry Ford museum in Dearborn a couple years ago.

Then the highway construction wasn't mentioned on the GPS and we ended up driving behind some urban youths in NW Goldberg (I think).

Sticking to Ann Arbor next time.

Hot dog driver? That is what I'd truly like to be.

Is this thread supposed to be some kind of admonishing bootstraps kind of thing directed at teenagers who don't go for the kind of iffy pseudo-jobs like subby thinks they should?

And the twenty-four big-uns were hired.

I'm proud to say that one of my former students is in Hot Dog High right now. It's actually been a dream of hers for a while, and I daresay she'll make a great spokesperson.

I got one last summer when one of the Wienermobiles visited the Fred Meyer I was at in Eugene, Oregon.

Not a bad way to spend your twenties. You would get lots of experience around the country dealing with people. That would be priceless.

You guys ready for a CSB that involves not just the Wienermobile, but ALSO that sandwich truck in the picture above?

Fantastic, you guys. I'm glad you're all so excited about this. Okay, check this out...

I live in Kansas City, where we've got the Westport Flea Market - the home of that sandwich truck. One day while driving my Jeep Grand Cherokee right past that sandwich truck parked in front of the Flea, I was bumped from behind by another vehicle making a right-hand turn onto a busy street - the by-god Oscar Mayer Wienermobile itself driving through the bar district. It was being driven by some clueless teenage girl who was making "OMG!" faces in my rear view mirror... well, the side mirror, actually, since I couldn't see up into the Wienermobile "cockpit" from my rear-view. There was another girl about the same age sitting on the passenger side making a mixture of "OMG!" and "Holy shiat, this is funny!" faces. The girl driving the massive phallic wagon made some "I'm so sorry" gestures, and I waved her away from my window with a laugh since it was only a slight tap of the bumper (no damage at all upon inspection).

Of course, it took me just a few seconds to register that, yes indeed, I'd just gotten rear-ended by the Wienermobile. I'm since reminded of it every time I drive past that sandwich truck - the time my arse got tapped by a giant rolling wiener (NTTAWWT).

/if I were an Oscar Mayer Wiener, I probably wouldn't butt-ram myself... much.

I don't recruit or hire people directly, but seeing "wienermobile driver" on a resume would almost automatically make me want to call them in for an interview.
 
2012-06-18 05:44:28 AM  
I thought kids today didn't apply themselves and it's their own fault that so many of them are out of work.

Don't worry, sweety. A lot of girls go to college for the same reason.

My niece was a hotdogger and now helps hire and supervises current ones and schedules the Weenie wagon appearances. The total of applicants is actually closer to 2000 and most are PR, communications, or business majors so it really looks good on a resume. Travel the country all expenses paid, decent salary, great experience: perfect job for a twenty-something just out of college.

Here is the video she included in her application which got her the job: Link

I lived in a house with a huge sidewalk when I was in college (like the size of your average driveway). I come stumbling home one night and the wienermobile is parked on our sidewalk. I looked at it, thought, "damn, I didn't realize I was that drunk." and went into the house. I was sort of surprised when I woke up the next morning and it was still there.

If someone was able to make the cut to beat out 83 other applicants (per position available) to get an internship that's pure marketing and public relations I'd certainly think they've got some skills and be worthy of an interview for a real job in the industry.

Plus, I'd assume they're essentially immune to workplace lawsuits after spending a summer listening to wiener and buns jokes.

Since we're busting out CSB time, here's mine.

It's January 12, 1997. The Packers are hosting the Panthers for the NFC championship on their way to their first Super Bowl in my 22 years. At halftime, I go in to work (manager at McDonald's) and finish watching them win. I was over the moon with joy. As we were located along the highway just south of Green Bay, I know we are going to get veeeeeery busy soon from the people leaving the stadium. This is fine, I enjoy being really busy. As we are just getting bombarded, someone tells me to look out in the parking lot. What to my wondering eyes should appear, but the mother f'ing Weinermobile! They came in to eat and I made their food.

To recap, The Packers are going to the Super Bowl and I made food for the Weinermobile people. That was a pretty farkin' good day.

/Maybe someday my grandkids will appreciate that story, cause my kids sure don't.
//Yes, I'm still a geek.

Yes, yes it will be. Kudos to you for having your head screwed on straight.

You know you had a good party when you think you hallucinated a 40 foot weiner and wake up to find it's still there.

It seemed more reasonable than having a 40 foot wiener actually parked in front on the sidewalk.

They store them right across the street from where I work, and practice driving them in the parking lot next door. I snapped this picture Friday coming back from lunch. Look closely, there are 4 of them there. Crappy picture, though
