After a night of barhopping in Cedarburg, the Racing Italian Sausage is missing

Beer and curling, eh?...

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…

The Racing Sausages, including the Bratwurst, the Polish Sausage, the Hot Dog and the Chorizo, are a popular sight at Brewer’s [sic] games and recently appeared at spring training.

They (Klement's) do this a lot, what they call guerrila marketing where they just show up at Taverns unnannounced. They all show up in costume and there are a couple handlers with them, and they let drunken patrons wear the costumes, pose for photos and basically make fools of themselves. This doesn't surprise me.

The 7-foot-long weenie

Hey! This is a family site! (Won't someone think of the children...?!)

Wait... my life has become a template for guerrilla marketing? Do I have an intellectual property case?

I always wondered what people meant when they said they were going to play "hide the sausage." Now I know.

It's Italian, so there is at least a chance it is at one of Berlusconi's bunga bunga parties.

Although I was at one time a member of that curling club, I deny and all involvement in this incident.

Where is Randall Simon when you need him?

Note: I got his name right before googling. I am very proud of myself right now.
