Missing link found: Milwaukee Brewers Racing Italian Sausage costume returned to Wisconsin bar

Guido, the Racing Italian Sausage, is on his way home to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Missing for nearly two weeks, the 7-foot sausage costume was dropped off at TJ Ryan's bar in Cedarburg, Wis. on Wednesday night by two men — "one wearing a hoodie pulled tight over his face," reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the paper of record on this case:

[They] 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.

Hey, beertender: "You did not see anything" is a figure of speech!

Anyway, on Wednesday, The Stew reported that Guido, one of the Brewers' mascots and member of a troupe of five Racing Sausages, was taken from a store room inside a Wisconsin curling club Feb. 16. After a night of barhopping and picture-taking with local residents, the costume went missing.

A reward was issued by a local mustard company for Guido, estimated to be worth $3,000. It does not appear whoever returned the costume wants the reward, possibly because a police investigation continues.

The Journal-Sentinel also notes that it was the Italian Sausage that Randall Simon hit with a bat and knocked over 10 years ago. Guido's had a rough life, man.
