@Robertsproject: Yes, implausible as it probably seems, I own a Beanie Baby Wienermobile. One of my good friends from college landed a gig driving the Wienermobile. This must have been ten years ago (hence the Beanie Baby). I went to see him at an event, got a tour (it’s swank on the inside), and got this bad boy, which at the time was super-rare and worth close to $1,235,568 on the Beanie Baby Black Market. Now, sadly, its market value has plummeted, and its value lay purely in its role as a keepsake, dust collector, and occasional paper weight.
