Paul Ryan Used To Drive The Wienermobile

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

You're going to be hearing a lot about Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan when he's picked as Mitt Romney's Vice Presidential candidate later this morning. Here's something they may not tell you: he used to drive the Wienermobile and sell meat products for Oscar Mayer in the upper-Midwest.


At some point we'll have to get into a discussion of Janesville, where's he's from, and the now-defunct GM plant that's there. We'll have to talk about his views on diesel, CAFE standards, the bailout, and all that nonsense.

But, so far as we can tell, the most important fact you need to know about the man who could be one heartbeat away from the presidency is that he used to deliver hot dogs. In a truck. Shaped like a giant hot dog.

Don't say we didn't let you know the important details of this election. Anyone who can get us a photo of Ryan driving/inside of the Wienermobile is going to get a lot of thumbs up from us.
