Drive-By Sausage Fest!

Two weekends ago my fiancee and I didn't feel much like cooking, so we headed out to one of the local establishments. For some reason, we took a different route home. We pulled into the parking lot of a video rental store, checking to see if there were any good deals on used DVDs (there weren't), so we decided to go home. Across the street from this video store is a national chain establishment known as Applebee's. You may have heard of it. You know, American faire, crazy shit on the walls, waitresses who won't even blink if you pronounce the double l's in "quesadilla"... Anyways, this was what we saw in the parking lot.

Hmmm, that looks suspiciously like an 8-foot-tall bratwurst accompanied by a hot dog of similar height. Let's see what seems to be going on.

Looks like we've got a good ol' fashoined parking lot sausage race. Onlookers of every culture, creed, and color are gathered for this epic contest. For those of you unfamiliar with this crew, from left to right are the following: Hot Dog, Chorizo, Italian, Bratwurst, and Polish (partially hidden by the tree).

Oh no! Brat down! Repeat! BRAT DOWWWWWNNNNN!
Those two employees look genuinely worried. I hope this turns out alright for that spiced sausage.

Looks like he's OK. Hooded sweatshirt guy surveys the damage. Might be a little casing damage, perhaps a little spice leakage, but everything still seems edible.

Thank goodness the woman brings her camera along everywhere she goes.
