Oscar Meyer Weiner Hearse

image Apparently this is not a hoax. The Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile led the funeral procession for George Molchan, a former spokesman for the company who died earlier this month. He often drove it, so it seemed fitting to include it in the ceremony (thanks to Eric for the link):

Molchan was laid to rest to the accompaniment of solemn prayers delivered in Slovenian by clergy from St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church. But not before the 50 or so people at the Calumet Park Cemetery grave site broke into a chorus of the company theme song, "I'd love to a be an Oscar Mayer wiener," followed by a few quick blasts on miniature, hot-dog shaped whistles handed out to the crowd.

I'm not sure the quote:
"Children were his joy and his passion"

means what I initially thought...

I think the word you're looking for in the title is "Hearse."

That's it!
I want to have the exact same funeral when I go.
Except I want my remains IN the wienermobile, not behind it. Sausage casings optional.

And a giant hot-dog bun for a casket.

Makes you wonder what they put into the actual wieners, then.

Oh that was tasteless, I am sorry.

Is this even real? This seems like some sort of joke. Who brings the Oscar Meyer Weiner Truck to a funeral? Oh but it gets better, they all, all 50 of them sing the Oscar Meyer Theme song! I thinks its pretty funny is all.
