Don’t you wish you were an Oscar Mayer weiner?

No, it’s no April Fools Day joke — the Weinermobile rolled through Arlington. Perhaps it was the same large sausage vehicle that was posted up at the Springfield Lidl in Fairfax County this afternoon. It will also be at the Fairfax Lidl at 11179 Lee Highway on Sunday between 9 a.m. and noon for anyone who really wants to get a photo.
