Runaway Wienermobile Violates Woman's House

As any meat-lover knows, Wisconsin produces excellent kielbasa and other forms of hearty sausage. Well, according to Autoblog, one lucky Wisconsin resident had an enormous, unexpected piece of meat delivered directly into her garage last week. Perhaps still on the run from carnivorous 4th of July grills, the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile found itself stuck at the end of a dead-end street in the Racine neighborhood of Mt. Pleasant.

Probably sensing an oncoming swarm of sausage-loving Wisconsinites, the wiener captain thought the massive hot dog was still in reverse -- it wasn't -- and, after flooring it, accidentally plowed forward into a local resident's garage. (If you've ever wanted to get behind the wheel and feel the power of the mighty Wienermobile, there may be an opening soon.)

According to Racine's FOX 6, the shocked homeowner claims to have no insurance coverage, but hopes that Kraft Foods can supply restitution. (Even though the driver slipped away without leaving a phone number. Typical.) Note to Kraft: A lifetime supply of hot dogs might be a good start. [From:, via Autoblog]

[Ed. Note: Oops! The driver, thinking the iconic mobile hot dog was in reverse, floored the vehicle, causing it to drive forward. Thanks, BT!]
