The Punchline

A great first job out of college

And finally, to a very popular job opening.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, more than a thousand college seniors apply every year. Only 12 spots are available.

The job is to drive an Oscar Mayer Wienermobiles — which are just what they sound like: 27-foot-long hot dog cars.

The lucky drivers have to go to a three week hot dog boot camp, where they learn to say things like:

“Have a bun-derful day.”

And, “Frank you very much.”
