Italian Sausage “Guido” Found by Police, Uneaten

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has the spicy details on the heretofore missing member of the Famous Klement’s Racing Sausages:

Guido, the Klement’s racing Italian sausage costume last seen a couple weeks ago adorning a bar hopper in Cedarburg, was returned Wednesday night after a day of media focus.

The hot sausage reportedly was dropped off at TJ Ryan’s bar in Cedarburg.

Two men — one wearing a hoodie pulled tight over his face — lugged the larger-than-life link into the bar just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, plopped him on a bar stool and warned staff, “You did not see anything,” said bartender Jen Mohney.

“Like I didn’t just see two guys plop a sausage on a bar stool,” Mohney said.

Mohney said the two left in less than a minute and she immediately called police. . . .

Until Wednesday night, the 7-foot get-up had been last seen Feb. 16. At a fundraiser at the Milwaukee Curling Club’s new Cedarburg location, a witness saw the sausage walk out the south door about 7:45 p.m., Cedarburg police Detective Jeff Vahsholtz said. The Italian sausage walked into TJ’s an hour later and also made an appearance around midnight at The Roadhouse Bar and Grill. . . .

Vahsholtz said before the return of the costume that he couldn’t say whether there would be charges for what seemed to be an elaborate prank.
