Great Moments in Law Enforcement Reporting

Though one suspects that McGruff The Crime Dogwould not approve...

It all went down in Upper Moreland Township, PA, after cops say the Wienermobile was rollin' around town with a broken third tail light ... yes, Wienermobiles have three tail lights.

But the magical powers of the Wienermobile kicked in -- and cops decided to let the mouthwatering machine off with a warning.

TMZ spoke to law enforcement sources close to the situation who gave us the best quote ever, "It's un-American to ticket the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile."

You'd think cops would show a bit more relish for their official duties...

Yes, but I'd have been a lot happier if they'd mustard up enough courage to ticket the Weinermobile.

"the Wienermobile was rollin' around town with a broken third tail light ..."
When asked to comment, a spokesman in Congressman Frank's office stated with some aggitation,
"Congressman Frank was NOT in Pennsylvania, and further, trying to discuss the incident with you would be like talking to the table in Congressman Frank's apartment. The one with the fur lined straps. Oops!"
and hung up the phone.

Congressman Murtha's office had no comment but we will doggedly keep the heat on this one.

Now back to our MSNBC studios, and our host Chris Matthews!
Back to you!

*whispers off mic, "Chris, stop looking at your leg!"*

Hey, the cops are capable of excersing common sense. It is a shame this isn't done more often.

I am shocked... SHOCKED I TELL YOU that you would excuse this gross injustice. The last thing this great nation needs is to have its roadways inundated with Weiners of Privilege, wantonly breaking our laws and having their way with the local constabulary ;p

All day long we bust our buns, policing wayward weiners, having frank exchanges and engaging in dialogue with members of the Tubular-American community.

Where is the love?

I imagine that the police grilled the driver before they realized that giving him a ticket just wasn't going to cut the mustard.

Posted by: wheels at December 15, 2009 11:05 PM

At least they weren't brats about it.

Y'all are relishing this thread too much...

Posted by: BillT at December 16, 2009 08:58 AM

Did they get chilly?

Posted by: Cricket at December 16, 2009 06:41 PM

No. The oppressors went in whole hog and put the pigs in a blanket...
