Bluemont Wienermobile Sighting, Explained

(Updated at 12:20 p.m.) Wondering what the famous Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was doing at the entrance to Bluemont Park on Tuesday?

So were we. Luckily, the team of “hotdoggers” who are driving the vehicular sausage all over the East Coast got in touch with us yesterday and were able to grill them on the purpose of their visit.

“Hi there, we saw your post on the Wienermobile today,” wrote ‘Turkey Dog Tyler‘ and ‘Bacon Lettuce and Taylor,’ via email. “Shoot us an email if you want to ketchup! Franks!”

We asked what they were up to over in Bluemont.

“We’re in Annapolis for a few days of events at grocery stores,” the pair said. “We were just in Arlington for the afternoon to do some disc golfing with a friend.”

There were hot dogs served to their fellow Frisbee golf players, right? Seems like that would be a perk of the job.

“Haha nope no hot dogs,” the hotdoggers replied. “Just a nice day of frolfing in the park.”

The Oscar Mayer ambassadors promised to let us know next time they were in town. Hopefully they’ll remember to steer clear of the Pentagon.
