Call it the battle of the brats. The coals of controversy are still hot in Wisconsin (naturally), where the small towns of Prescott and Dallas are both claiming world record sausages, the Pioneer Press reports.
Prescott, Wis., drew Twin Cities media attention, which was picked up worldwide, when earlier this month the town grilled up a 52-foot sausage, and registered the meat marvel with the World Record Academy, one of a number of bodies that recognize such feats.
But Dallas, population 400, has been grilling up much longer bratwurst for four years straight, although the village never paid the $2,000 fee to have it registered, organizers said. A similar injustice occurred last year, Dallas organizers said. Here's the Barron-News Shield item to prove it. "I was annoyed that they did it last year, but I didn't say anything. And to have it done to us again, I feel the need to say something," Ann Lee told the Pioneer Press.
The Prescott folks say their creation was unique in that it also had a bun, produced by a baking company for $20,000.
