Sausage Party!!

Mundare SausageNo, seriously, it exists.

I must have driven past the world’s biggest sausage hundreds of time without ever having seen it. Mundare, 70 km east of Edmonton, is a small town, and I never would have stopped there if I hadn’t had that second bottle of iced tea on the trip from Saskatoon. When we turned off the highway, looking for a bathroom, the most glorious sight awaited us – a giant… turd?

Closer inspection showed that this monstrosity was supposed to be a sausage. And, the sign said, it was the biggest concrete sausage in the world!

Now, I’ve seen giant Easter eggs, giant pea plants, and even a giant moose in my time, but few things compare to the sight of a really massive sausage, looming over the landscape!

    You mean… it’s not the only concrete sausage in the world?

    I wonder if it is also inspires the most innuendos in the world?

    Incidentally, I think ‘Concrete Sausage” would be a great band name… Maybe for a country metal band.

    It really is a site to behold. My family had our family reunion in Mundare a number of years back. My mom said it didn’t look like a sausage… she has a dirty mind!

    In my old home town we had a statue of King Karl X (the Agressive).
    To each his own I guess.

    I know someone who can cook that sucker up… well maybe it didnt start like cement, but by god it would settle in your stomach that way!

    And maybe this is the missing link (har har) that explains what happened to Paul Bunyan’s buddy Babe…

    OK, I reckon throwing a link at me is one way of dealing with the question, but I was sort of hoping for a more conversational answer.

    Bubble-tea is basically a slush/smoothie type thing with tapioca jelly “bubbles” in it. I don’t think I’ve ever had “bubble tea” proper considering I always go for the fruit-shake variety instead of the “milk tea” that I believe gave the drink it’s name.

    heh, thanks Perdo. I’ll likely pass on the bubble tea though, I cant seem to get past how tapioca pudding looks like its already been through somebody. So anything with even the word tapioca in it will be seeing me walk on the other side of the street to get by. =P

    I don’t actually know why they’re called “Tapioca” bubbles, they’re essentially just jelly, adds a whole different dimension to what is essentially a fruit smoothie.
