Did you hear the one about the sausage that went into a bar and posed for pictures?
For the Milwaukee Brewers and their fans it's no joke.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, police are investigating the Feb. 16 theft of the $3,000 Italian sausage costume that is used in the popular sausage races at Miller Park during Milwaukee Brewers games,
The 7-foot-long sausage was in a backroom of the Milwaukee Curling Club during a beer-tasting event -- of course. A witness saw the sausage walk out the door around 7:45 p.m. and within hours, the sausage had made an appearance at several bars.
"We thought it was funny at the time," said Jeff Vahsholtz, a Cedarburg, Wisc., police detective. "Now we're just hoping someone returns it."
Whoever took the costume could face charges, but Vahsholtz would not elaborate.
Mustard Girl All American Mustards is offering a reward for the return of the costume -- a year's supply of mustard.
