Brewers costume thieves had themselves quite a sausage fest
The Italian Sausage costume that is used during the “Sausage Race” at every Milwaukee Brewers home game was returned to a bar Wednesday after it was reported missing earlier in the day, and it sounds like the people who stole it had themselves quite the sausage fest.
People claiming to be responsible for the “prank” emailed USA Today to detail their experience with the costume. The pranksters told USA Today that six people were involved — five women and one man — ranging from 26-55 years old. They even wrote a pun-filled note about what they called “Weenie Gate” which they attached to the costume when they returned it.
“Sorry I’m such a sauced weenie. You probably think I’m the wurst,” the note states. “I started feeling the heat as the police began to ketchup by connecting the links. I know it was a greasy move so here I am. Donate the mustard and drink the beer. Take me back to the Land of the Brew… Much Love, ur Cedarburg Crew.”
USA Today has some photos of the thieves partying at bars while wearing the sausage costume. You can see one below:
They even created a “Harlem Shake” video while wearing the costume:
Between the video, the note, and the pictures, I don’t know how anyone could be mad about the heist. This sounds like about the most fun time ever. I would have loved to do something like that in college.
