We are proud to name as this week's Rick and Len Weenie of the Week...Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt who was the driving force behind the purchase and construction of Elvis' favorite roller coaster for Bay Beach. However, after spending over 3 million dollars to bring the Zippin' Pippin to Green Bay, Schmitt and his team miscalculated how much power it would use resulting in the roller coaster blowing a fuse on it's second day of operation leaving a full load of riders stuck on board.
For being no stranger to coming up short.
For building a roller coaster that has the exact same problem he has as mayor...not enough power to get the job done.
For taking Elvis Presely's favorite roller coast, and making it look like "a hunka hunka burnin' junk. I said a hunka hunka burnin' junk, I said a hunka hunka burnin' junk".
We are proud to name Green Bay Mayor and Zippin' Pimp, Jim Schmitt as this week's Rick and Len Show...WEENIE OF THE WEEK!
