The Italian sausage costume used for the sausage race during Milwaukee Brewers home games is missing, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Though this seems like a story straight from “The Onion,” it’s actually true.
According to the Journal Sentinel, someone stole the Klement’s Racing Italian Sausage costume from the city’s Winter Festival and wore it out to go barhopping in Cedarburg, Wis. The costume was just lying in back room unused and a witness reportedly saw someone walk out while wearing it on Feb. 16.
Whoever stole the costume reportedly hit up two different Cedarburg bars with it on that night.
Mustard Girl All American Mustards has offered a year’s supply of mustard to whomever returns the costume.
The Italian Sausage, Bratwurst, Polish Sausage, and Chorizo all compete in the “Sausage Race” during Brewers home games. The costumes, which cost $3,000, are also available for rent.
So you’re telling me someone got to take that awesome costume barhopping and will get a year’s supply of mustard for returning it? Sign me up.
UPDATE: Two people dropped the costume off at the Cedarburg bar in a covert operation.Google+
