Bologna!


"My bologna has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R. My bologna has a second name, it's M-A-Y-E-R. Oh, I love to eat it everyday, and if you ask me why I'll sayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy... 'cause Oscar Mayer has a way with b-o-l-o-g-n- a!"

If you're over a certain age, you probably remember that little jingle from television commercials for Oscar Mayer Bologna and other fine meats. Today, I want to end the month with a somewhat humorous story about a use for bologna that Oscar Mayer never had in mind.

A Holyoke, MA (Don't ask... I never heard of the town either!) man has been arrested after a kilogram of cocaine (That's right, blow!) was found inside a hollowed-out chunk of bologna that was delivered to his home.

Holyoke police say they were tipped off by postal inspectors in Puerto Rico who had been investigating similar shipments. A dog confirmed the presence of coke and the bologna was cut open. (I'm imagining these dogs to be very laid back in their investigations.)

The bologna was then repackaged and an undercover postal inspector delivered it to a Holyoke address at about 4:45 p.m. on Thursday. A woman sitting on the front steps signed for it.

Police then executed a search warrant and arrested a 30-year-old man on a cocaine trafficking charge. Police say the cocaine had a street value of $100,000. The investigation is ongoing.

Like I said... Oscar Mayer never imagined his bologna being used like this!
