    Scott. Your conservatives have for over 50 years been undermining society and its institutions in order to amass power for itself. Don’t trust anyone but us was the rallying cry; just like an abusive spouse, partner or parent, they were the only solution. You added your fair share, so you don’t get to decry the horrible state of affairs now. You need to shore them up again with the same fervor.

    But “Oscar Mayer Frank” doesn’t work in the song. And do I have to call it a Frank whistle not a Weiner whistle.

    The “Frankmobile?” They need a good mind wash.

    Anthony David Weiner – yet another NY Congressional POS – should be required to drive the Weinermobile for all the remaining days of his lackluster life – registered as a sex offender, as he is, for transferring the image of his weiner to an underage person. The Weinermobile IS a sub-compact car, innit? Fits.

    Oscar Mayer’s Wienermobile is driving off into the sunset. Say hello, to … the Frankmobile.

    For the first time in its nearly century-long existence, the famous hot-dog-shaped vehicle is changing its name. Oscar Mayer says the new Frankmobile name “pays homage” to the new recipe for its hot dogs rolling out this summer.

    Despite the change, the Frankmobile looks largely the same compared to its predecessor – other than a new decal on the Oscar Mayer was coy about whether the name change is permanent, telling CNN that it’s “trying out to see if it ‘cuts the mustard’ with its fans,” a company spokesperson said.

    The brand’s new recipe for hot dogs represents the first change to Oscar Mayer’s franks in six years. Customers will soon see refreshed packaging and taste a “more balanced flavor profile and iconic beefy taste that is more delicious than ever,” according to a press release.

    “While some competitors focused on having strong flavors on a few aromatics like garlic and/or onion, our team worked to balance these out while still keeping strong beef brothy notes throughout the dog,” a spokesperson said. Specific details about the new recipe weren’t revealed.

    The Wienermobile dates back to 1936, when Carl Mayer told his Uncle Oscar about a new advertising idea that was a literal marketing vehicle for the company. Oscar Mayer now has six of the 23-foot-long vehicles, which travel across the United States to events including state fairs, grocery stores and sports contests to promote the brand.

    Oscar Mayer, owned by Kraft Heinz (KHC), has often used cheeky marketing tactics to attract attention to its packaged products. Last year, the company sold hot dog popsicles and bologna face masks that quickly sold out.

    Kraft wrote down the value of its Kraft and Oscar Mayer brands in 2019 by $15 billion because consumers have shifted their preferences away from processed foods.

    Kraft/H.J. Heinz-the urge to merge creating less and less competition. We the people get the shaft, while companies merge becoming corporations, who merge creating megacorporations. Creating less rather than more competition. The Govt actually used to force the breakup of monopolies. I believe the last one happened 40 years ago this month when USG forced the breakup of ATT.

    The question to me is, why has the USG allowed some corporations(especially those in the financial sector)to get “to big to fail”? Why has the USG been ignoring the laws on monopolies? IMVPO allowing corporations to merge with other corporations is taking us back to the the Gilded age, an era when customers and workers were totally at the mercy of rapacious corporations and the 90% of Americans at the most a tiny opportunity to escape poverty. The republican Party has been working for many years to eliminate the safeguards put in place after the 1929 market crash and the following world wide depression. Those laws(at least those that remained)kept the US from suffering as much as other countries following the Bush 43 “Great Recession” of 2007(several economists believe that rather than it being a “Great Recession” it was in fact the “2nd Great Depression”)
