Oh Dear God

This is, without a doubt, winner of Hilarity of the Month. The headline alone is enough to blast coffee out of your nose.


Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Crashes Into Wisconsin Home
MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis.—One southern Wisconsin homeowner is probably not in love with the Oscar Mayer wiener. The famed hot dog’s Wienermobile crashed Friday into the deck and garage of a home in Mount Pleasant, about 35 miles south of Milwaukee.

Police said the driver was trying to turn the Wienermobile around in the driveway and thought she was moving in reverse. But she instead went forward and hit the home. It sat in the driveway as if it were stuck in the garage Friday afternoon.

No one was home and no one was injured. No citations were immediately issued.

Both the home and vehicle suffered moderate damage, which Oscar Mayer spokeswoman Sydney Lindner says insurance will cover.

Police hadn’t been able to speak to the homeowner as of early Friday evening.

I don’t know why, but that it happened in Wisconsin adds exponentially to the mirth. And you will want to click on the headline link provided above. Because there’s a photograph.


Before The Howard Stern Show went to Sirius, WJFK in Washington was one of the radio stations to completely dis the man and his listeners.

Stern’s show is supposed to run to 10 a.m. but traditionally runs over considerably. Through his run on land radio, stations generally broadcast the show to its end, even if it made things inconvenient. Why? Because people listened to the end.

Once Stern had announced his intentions, though, some stations cut the show off at 10 a.m. regardless. WJFK said it needed to get started on the replacement show at the 10 a.m. slot. But it screwed Howard fans in D.C., myself included.

So imagine how glad I am to see that WJFK, long considered a um, “guy talk” format, is changing to sports.

Radio guys will never seem to learn that you don’t mess with The Howard Stern Show.
