The Wienermobile: is it your ticket to self-discovery?

By Blair Anthony Robertson, Bee Restaurant Critic
Napa 028.JPGDriving through midtown Thursday afternoon, this is the reason I did a doubletake and then a U-turn. The wienermobile is in town.

I'm not sure what the occasion is, but this giant wiener of a car was in Sacramento -- and it was turning plenty of heads. A little research tells me the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile travels the country promoting the Kraft Foods hot dog brand.

The company also hires a new crew each year to drive this puppy all over the place. So if you're young and still searching for what matters in life and what it all really means, don't you think that journey would be even cooler in a wienermobile?

And just think: a multi-national corporation will pay you to drive it. If you're going to sell out, do it in the wienermobile.

There's a website where you can get more information on this fascinating career opportunity. I'd do it myself, but I've already figured out the meaning of life -- and it does not involve a 27-foot hot dog that is really, really hard to parallel park.

Or, if you simply want to watch from the sidelines, there's a blog that keeps up with the wienermobile's exploits.
