Your Sausage (Not SoSG) News Of The Day

Since the common pronunciation of our blog's acronym is "sausage," I had to post on this, via Deadspin. I mean, really, who can resist any article with the clause, "and a witness saw the sausage walk out of the south door about 7:45 p.m.":

The Klement's Racing Italian Sausage went barhopping in Cedarburg recently, delighting patrons and posing for photos. The only problem: No one can say who was wearing the $3,000 costume, which had just been stolen from the city's Winter Festival.

The 7-foot-long weenie was lying unused in a backroom at the Milwaukee Curling Club's new Cedarburg location during a fundraiser on Feb. 16 with beer-tasting and curling, and a witness saw the sausage walk out of the south door about 7:45 p.m., Cedarburg police Detective Jeff Vahsholtz said Wednesday. The Italian walked into TJ Ryan's in Cedarburg an hour later and also made an appearance around midnight at The Roadhouse Bar and Grill.

Vahsholtz said police were still interviewing bar patrons and looking for the costume, which is owned by the Milwaukee-based sausage company Klement's.

"We thought it was funny at the time," Vahsholtz said. "Now we're just hoping someone returns it."

As we've always told you guys, you gotta hold on to your sausage. (Especially if it's a seven-foot-long weenie.)
