Tell Me Again Why This Is "Flyover" Country?

"A massive hot dog clogged Chicago's main artery Thursday morning.

In a rare occurrence of an encased-meat vehicle committing a traffic violation, Chicago police ticketed the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile for illegal parking on the Magnificent Mile...

"You can't just park here," the officer said.

One of the passengers, who declined to be identified, said they were visiting a Wienermobile alumnus who worked nearby, but were unaware that one could not park a giant sausage in the middle of the city's busiest thoroughfare."
I appreciate that Chicago's finest are on top of these things, since it would have been a tragedy if traffic prevented access to the dumping of the duckies for the 2nd Annual Windy City Ducky Derby.

Tip o' the Gooey hat to Carijudy!
