My Bologna has a first name....

Who knew that Oscar Mayer was a real person? A person who apparently did not have his picture take since 1965.

Mr. Mayer died in Wisconsin this week at the age of 95.
Rest in peace Mr. Hot Dog.

P.S. If you want to hear the whole song, you can watch it here.

Are you kidding me? We Chicago people know he had a first name. He is one of our own. We have a school named after him after all!!!!

I actually did know he was a real person. I didn't know he passed away however.

I don't need to listen to the song to have it rattling around in my head for the rest of the day now. lol

For those of us who grew up with it, it's one of those jingles that never quite goes away. lol
