Norbert Wittman. A Saturday Night Live parody or a culinary genius?
Well, that depends I suppose on how serious you are about your meat. Wittman has started The Sausage Academy in Neumarkt, Germany.
If you love the wieners, guess what? You can now earn a Master’s Degree in the Art of Sausage. I wonder how these final exams work.
I am clearly not qualified to enroll. Once in college, I placed a hot dog in the microwave. TOO LONG. The image of explosive Oscar Meyer terminated my credentials. That and the fact I would even eat an Oscar Meyer wiener.
There are a variety of courses to enhance your sausage knowledge as well including understanding the relationships between sausage and mustard, sausage and lager, and which tunes best accompany a tasty sausage. And further, you can master a class in Sausage Appreciation.
Sausage Appreciation? Where a group of people worship the bratwurst? I think I saw this once. But I called it a Green Bay Packers playoff game. But alas, it is only a Master’s Degree so even if you are so inspired, there will be no “Dr. Wiener” in your future.
PS: Seriously, I might not want to be the Hausfrau of the hot diggety-dog, but if I would love to be the Countess of Cabernet.
PSS: Quick tip: When looking for royalty-free images to accompany a post like this, when you log into Google images, do NOT type as your search: free wiener pics.
