Weinermobile on K Street

Random Washington DC

Since its invention in 1936 by Oscar’s nephew, Carl G. Mayer, the Weinermobile has been a marketing icon. And not for the first time, was it recently seen on Washington DC streets.

Here it is touring K Street, probably giving a Congressman a lift to a mid-day power lunch.

The question must be asked then: If you were in a position of power, and had the opportunity to take the Winermobile for a spin, would you? And where in DC would you go?

Married, mortgaged, and soon to be a father, Wayan Vota is in the fast lane to mid-life respectability – until the day his brood finds his intimate journal of global traveling and curses him with the ever-eternal reply “I’m gonna be just like you, Dad!”

  1. My favorite DC/Wienermobile story is the time it got pulled over a few years ago because the drivers didn’t realize Route 110 was closed to truck traffic because of its proximity to the Pentagon, and technically… the Wienermobile counts as a truck. Fortunately, the trooper took pity on them and directed them to the nearest exit without ticketing the driver.

  2. I’d navigate Dupont Circle with it, then go on Mass Ave to Nebraska to Arizona, Canal Street, then the Chain Bridge and up Glebe to my house. This would be after I put flamethrowers on it and rigged a way to fire hot dogs at people.
