"What really happened on that fateful day with the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile?" the Waukesha County, Wisconsin, Sheriff's office tweeted on Monday.

Meat company Oscar Mayer owns six 27-foot-long Wienermobiles, and apparently one of them got burned. When the sheriff shared the photo of the pulled-over hot dogger, fans couldn't wait to serve up a pun. Here are the five best we saw.
