'Everyone would be in love with me'

Posted By on Fri, Dec 12, 2008 at 6:50 PM


Santa will be at the Little Rock Zoo Saturday, but to heck with that.

Remember the old jingle about Oscar Mayer Wieners -- "I wish I was an Oscar Mayer wiener, etc.?"

The only thing I like better than the weiner are the Oscar Meyer Wienermobiles. Both mini- and maxi-versions, will be at the Zoo for festivities tomorrow (Saturday).

(Confession: For my periodic chili dog feasts, I've switched to Bryan Juicy Jumbos, lest  you think I'm shilling for a certain brand of tubesteak here.)
