Fictional characters who prefer Earl Grey tea include Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Sir Leigh Teabagging from The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.

...i guess the first (area) sighting of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was by mistycaldwell. outstanding work!

from the Roanoke Times
Bethann Chordas wanted something different after college graduation. No run-of-the-mill, entry level job would do.
She wanted to see the country in a 27-foot-long Oscar Mayer Wienermobile.
"I had always talked about it in college," said Chordas, an Ohio native who settled in Roanoke in September.

and so on.

other local news comes to us from 1919 (The Book of the Damned):

That, near the point where the Blue Ridge and the Allegheny Mountains unite, north of Patrick County, Virginia, many little stone crosses have been found.
A race of tiny beings.
They crucified cockroaches.
Exquisite beings - but the cruelty of the exquisite. In their diminutive way they were human beings. They crucified.

Montana Noir
i started a dHammett novel 'cause there's a dead man name of Donald Willsson. funny spelling. funnier even than Donald Willson / theatre major, white suit, big ears / guy erased his own map with a .38 back in the day (we dated th'same g_rl / perhaps at the same time...). anyway:

"What's the rumpus?" I asked him.
He looked at me carefully before he replied, as if he wanted to be sure that the information was going into safe hands. His eyes were gray as his clothes, but not so soft.
"Don Willsson's gone to sit on the right hand of God, if God don't mind looking at bullet holes."
"Who shot him?" I asked.
The gray man scratched the back of his neck and said:
"Somebody with a gun."

ps/ it's about time !
