Oh, I Wish I Were an Oscar Mayer Wiener . . .

Saw this story on the Arizona Daily Star website. Apparently, Tucson police mistakenly pulled over the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, thinking it was stolen when it wasn't. I just have to wonder how the officer called it in: "Uh, dispatch, I am currently in pursuit of a 25 foot hot dog, please send back-up with lots of ketchup, mustard, and relish. And a beer. Over."

In TPD's defense, the plate really was listed as stolen. Data entry error--it should have read "stolen if on any vehicle that isn't a giant hotdog" or similar, the original plate having been replaced.

Not that TPD hasn't made some booboos. This just wasn't one of them.
