One of the great marketing ideas of all time, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile has been delighting people for decades. Rolling into towns across the country, the mobile hot dog spreads its processed-meat propaganda with flair. Occasionally, bystanders are invited to hop on and ride “shotbun.”

Now Oscar Mayer has announced that people can summon the Wienermobile for a monumental life event—a marriage proposal. Before popping the question, Wienermobile enthusiasts can head to the company’s website and request that the vehicle make a stop to commemorate the moment. If a Wienermobile is in the area, Oscar Mayer will give the person a week’s notice to gather their courage and make the appropriate arrangements. The Wienermobile is provided at no cost.

Oscar Mayer got the idea for the offer when one of their drivers proposed to his girlfriend in front of the vehicle.

Gergely "Dudolf" Dudás has a way of turning simple images into mind-numbing puzzles. Look closely at his amazing illustrations of squirrels, snails, and rabbits, and you'll find an object that doesn't belong in each one. This new image from the artist features a doe hiding in a crowd of stags, and it may be one of his toughest brainteasers yet.

Most of Dudolf's hidden image puzzles pair items that look similar. In the image above, the only difference between the doe and the stags surrounding it is the lack of antlers. You may have to study a lot of deer heads before finding the animal that's out of place. If you're feeling impatient, you can check the solution at the bottom of the page.

Dudolf has released many brain teasers inspired by the holidays. Pictures he's illustrated in the past include a sheep hidden among Santas, a snowman among snowflakes, and a panda among snowmen.
