    Not Healey but the puns are worth it

    I thought the standards for driving the Wiener Mobile were among the highest possible but this guy failed to cut the mustard.

    If I may be "frank," Hot Dog! The meat of this article written was 'well-done!'

    I can see a big snag operating a vehicle like this in Australia.

    Traffic safety and coverage always provides food for thought, speaking frankly. Can you imagine the grilling the driver must have gotten? The relish with which this has been treated? Poor driver must have felt that more than his goose was cooked. Good to see that any offering to grease palms or to even butter up the police was a failure. Doug

    I'm quite sure the other officers were happy to roll on this call. Frankly, I'm glad they're ready to serve.

    I had to refer to my Google translator but I was guessing a snag might refer to some kind of meat in a casing. I think Danny gets top dog for that one. In my opinion of all the nations, Australia may have the best slang. Of course, it is English so who know what else I might be missing.
