SAY IT AIN'T SO!
Oscar G. Mayer, retired chairman of the Wisconsin-based meat processing company that bears his name, died Monday at the age of 95.
I have been inside the weinermobile several times over the years......last time was when it rolled up onto the courtyard at my place of employment in Orange County CA in 2004 with my grandson. The cute hostesses give you a tour, and a whistle!!
This jingle is from 1965....the year my oldest daughter was born. I think all my kids learned this jingle before they could walk. ser.i.ous.ly.
Another product's jingle is almost equally well well-known:
My bologna has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R
My bologna has a second name, it's M-A-Y-E-R
Oh, I love to eat it every day, and if you ask me why, I'll say,
"'Cause Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A."
RIP, Oscar G. Mayer.
