When Molly Swindall Facebook messaged me and asked if I wanted to do an interview on the Wienermobile, I seriously paused and looked in the mirror and asked myself out loud, “Dude, you just got asked by Oscar Mayer to interview a hotdog.” Well, hell yeah I’m in!!! That silly driving hot dog makes people smile, whether they are 3 years or 100 years old. Oscar Mayer is a thing! I don’t care who you are, if you haven’t had the meat product, you certainly know the songs: “My bologna has a first name it’s O S C A R, my Bologna has a second name it’s M A Y E R …” and then the other one, “Oh I’d love to be an Oscar Mayer wiener. That is what I’d truly like to be. ‘Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer wiener, everyone would be in love with me.” I know y’all sang that because I sang it when I wrote it!
It was an absolute pleasure to be invited inside the Wienerbago, whose door opens like a DeLorean. It is all plush and comfortable and to answer the question that I am always asked, now that people know I have actually seen the innards is, “Do they sell hotdogs?” No. They don’t. They tour the country making people smile! The two ladies in charge of this particular mobile are Molly Swindall aka Mayochup Molly and Maggie Thomas aka Mustard Mags and they are awesome!
