Milwaukee Brewers' missing sausage link returned to Wisconsin bar
Cancel the Amber Alert -- Guido (second from right) has been found.
Our long national nightmare is over -- Guido, the Klement's Racing Italian Sausage of Milwaukee Brewers fame, has been returned safe and sound a few days after he disappeared in a booze-fueled haze.
The $3,000 missing link was dropped off at TJ Ryan's bar in Cedarburg, Wisconsin under mysterious circumstances.
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.
Cedarburg Detective Jeff Vahsholtz won't say whether police are hoping to press charges against whoever made off with the sausage and then took it barhopping, but c'mon -- let's hope Vahsholtz's department can find a better way to spend taxpayer dollars than that.
