Doggone it!

Pass the mustard!

This is too good to pass up, a headline writer's dream. Didja see where the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile crashed into the porch of a home in Wisconsin?

I hear the driver was hotdogging it around, but police are going to grill her. She probably wore her hair in a bun. If the owner was unhappy, and of German descent, he'd be a sauerkraut. I know, I'm relishing this too much.

Headline contest? Your entries?
