USAToday Rest easy, Wisconsin: The Milwaukee Brewers’ missing Italian racing sausage has been found. But Guido had a good time while missing, including participating in a Harlem Shake dance. The 7-foot costume is typically used with other sausages for a seventh-inning race around the warning track at Miller Park. On Feb. 16, though, Guido had a night on the town, as detailed to USA TODAY Sports by one of the people claiming to be responsible for the theft. She e-mailed photos and video and requested anonymity because she said no malice was intended in what she termed a prank. She said six residents of Cedarburg and Mequon, Wis., ranging in age from 26 to 55 — five women and one man — collaborated on the heist. She described how they attached a note to the sausage when the group returned it to TJ Ryan’s Tavern in Cedarburg. The note, which refers to the theft as “Weenie Gate,” reads:
Sorry I’m such a sauced weenie. You probably think I’m the wurst. 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.
These people stole “Guido” the famous Milwaukee Brewers Italian Sausage mascot and took him out for a night on the town, which included a guitar solo on stage, getting hammered and getting his freak on with a few lucky ladies. The chicks in the pictures below totally got the sausage from the sausage that night, probably both at the same time, if you catch my drift. This was a harmless prank, since they returned the costume after a night on the town, and no harm was done. All in good fun. I can only imagine the horrible things that would have been done to the costume if it was my friends that stole the costume,but I guarantee that it would not have been returned in one piece, and the police would be bombarded with 911 calls reporting an evil sausage committing unspeakable acts. So kind of a lame prank, my favorite mascot pranks are the ones where a frat steals a rival college’s mascot and gets it drunk, like on the classic episode of The Simpsons “Homer Goes to College”
Anyway, here are some photos of the Guido the Italian Sausage’s alcohol and whore fueled night on the town, including a “Harlem Shake” video, which I am already mad at myself for posting because I hate “Harlem Shake” videos. They got old so fast and were never funny. Everyone, please, stop it!
