Can Someone Explain This?

This gun  M274 "mechanical mule" and 106mm recoilless rifle (Thanks for the ID Pete Henry!) was being towed through my town during today's Veterans Day Parade.

It has an Oscar Meyer logo on the barrel.

Well, I can tell you that, apparently, that's a M274 "mechanical mule" with a 106mm recoilless rifle mounted.

I think the Oscar Meyer wiener logo is a joke on the part of the restorers...

Me, I miss the good old days...

We fired our cannon ’til the barrel melted down.
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round.
We filled his head with cannon balls, and powdered his behind
And when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his mind.
