I WISH I WERE AN OSCAR MAYER WIENER: I'm not one who habitually reads the obituaries, but the AP obit of George Molchan, aka "Little Oscar," Oscar Mayer's mascot, is priceless. In particular, there's the final paragraph, describing the funeral:
The 27-foot-long Wienermobile was parked Saturday near Mr. Molchan's grave in Merrillville, drawing smiles from dozens attending his memorial. Before priests said the final prayers over the coffin, about 50 mourners sang a chorus of the Oscar Mayer jingle and then blew short blasts on hot dog-shaped whistles.
