Yay I got a job! Not as a reporter.
is delicious: about 25 curious Mizzou
on Tuesday to learn more about a yearlong gig tooling around in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile
Punchline: they were "mostly journalism majors," says the article
in The Columbia Daily Tribune
. Ha! See it's funny because our industry is dying and we'll all be put out on the street! Man, I love jokes.
The Oscar Mayer marketing fellow that's quoted in the story says that online applications have shot up from 1,000 to 1,500.

Brian Mallioux, a biology major [says,] "It's a good opportunity to
interact with different people, just getting yourself out there."
True, Brian, it is
a good opportunity. Though it could be a crutch. If piloting the
Wienermobile becomes necessary for your social interactions, just think how awkward, for example, funeral processions will
be, or trying to win that drag race to impress the hottest girl in school.
All we're saying is, proceed carefully, Brian.
