This got me to to do the old double take.  That's right, a meat hall of fame.  Take a read...

Who knew there was such thing as a Meat Hall of Fame? Well, there is. It's in Wisconsin and the Meat Industry Hall of Fame will be inducting five new members this spring -- including the munchkin coroner from the Wizard of Oz! That would be Meinhardt Raabe who represented Oscar Mayer & Co. as "Little Oscar" and played a key part in the company's early efforts to gain brand recognition. Mr. Raabe, took a leave from his job at Oscar Mayer to play the role of munchkin coroner for the movie Wizard of Oz (Think: "She's not only merely dead, she's really, most sincerely dead!). The resulting celebrity further propelled the Little Oscar character and Oscar Mayer products to new markets throughout the nation. Raabe died in 2009. Inductees will be recognized at the annual meeting of the Wisconsin Livestock and Meat Council on May 12, 2011. We're pretty sure tickets are still available.
