The famed Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was involved in an unfortunate fender-bunder in Pennsylvania. According to KDKA, a Wienermobile — which is shaped like a hot dog in a bun — crashed into a pole in Harrisburg Sunday thanks to icy road conditions. While no one was hurt, the 27-foot Wienermobile is in bad shape: It has a smashed windshield and "serious damage of the front of the ‘bun' fender." Fear not though lovers of food-shaped vehicles, the company has many more Wienermobiles that will roam the streets of the world meaty and proud.

The Wienermobile has an interesting driver history: In 2012 it was revealed that vice president candidate Paul Ryan used to deliver hot dogs in the Wienermobile. Yes, a Wienermobile driver almost made it into the White House. Check out the local news story below:
