AY, CHORIZO. The fifth racing sausage will be uno chorizo. The Electric Commentary's Paul Noonan is pleased.

As you all know, the single most enjoyable part of any Milwaukee Brewers' home game is the sausage race. The sausage race is great. Aside from being highly entertaining, it also teaches us that Germans wear lederhosen, Italians have gigantic mustaches, and Polish people where sunglasses and Freddy Krueger sweaters. I don't know why they do this, but apparently they do.

Today, the Brewers and Klement's Sausage Co. announced that they're adding a fifth sausage, the Mexican Chorizo. I'm extremely happy with this decision. For the most part, people of European ancestry do not get angry about their stereotypes. Italian people occasionally get ticked off about Mafia references, but that problem usually takes care of itself, if you get my drift.

I think it's a good choice, but I also remember Harvey's Wallbangers, which suggests a possible British candidate should a sixth sausage be contemplated.
