Wisconsin Racing Sausage fans can rest easy...Guido has been found! Long story short, a Guido the Italian Racing Sausage costume was...ahem..."borrowed" for a night of fun and folly back on February 16th.
Apparently 6 Cedarburg and Mequon residents...5 women and 1 man between the ages of 26 and 55...were in on the kidnapping.
The stolen sausage was recently returned to T.J. Ryan's Tavern in Cedarburg along with an apology note titling the caper "Weenie Gate:"
Sorry I'm such a sauced weenie. You probably think I'm the wurst. I started feeling the heat as the police began to ketchup by connecting the links. I know it was a greasy move so here I am. Donate the mustard and drink the beer. Take me back to the Land of the Brew… Much Love, ur Cedarburg Crew.
The Sausage costume is owned by Klement's Sausage Company who released a statement welcoming Guido back home. Cedarburg police declined to say if the theft was being investigated as a crime.

I'm the "Murphy" half of Murphy & Meg. My first name is Dave but my friends call me "Murphy" or "Murph" (or some other names that aren't so nice!) I was born and raised in Madison, WI where I spent the first 17 years of my radio career before coming to Milwaukee and Oldies 95.7 in 2004. I love music and sharing my passion for it with you. I’ve wanted to be in broadcasting since I was 3 years old and got a “wooden” microphone for Christmas! I started on the radio (for real) shortly after my 16th birthday.
When I'm not working, I'm usually spending time with my wife, Jana, my daughters Riley (16), Lindsey (10) & Julia (2) and my sons Trent (17) & David (8.)
Classy, mature, sophisticated … not even close! Some things you might not know about me: I can’t cook to save my life, I am an obnoxiously finicky eater and have a laugh (read: cackle) that brings small children to tears. However, I'm a blast at parties and am not afraid to share the stories the morning after. On a more serious note, I have a college degree in Communications. I'm happy to have called Minneapolis, Chicago and Milwaukee all home at one time or another. I've done marketing, public relations, newspaper reporting and am now thrilled to be part of Murphy & Meg in the Morning on Oldies 95.7! I have three boys: Lance is 13, Trenton is 11 and Ethan is 10 and a dog, Toby!
