The wurst way to turn your kids into vegans…

August 14, 2009

Blog Guy, our family is going to Berlin for a vacation. Are there any museums we don’t want to miss?

For sure! Take your kids to check out the new condom museum, with the singing, dancing penis. It seems that a family planning group has…

Excuse me, Blog Guy, but that isn’t a penis, it’s a German national dish. According to these captions, this is a museum devoted to Curry Wurst – hot pork sausage seasoned with ketchup and curry powder.

Ewwwwww! Then I take back my advice to bring your small kids. They shouldn’t see something like curry wurst at a young age.

Oh, I don’t know. The museum tells about all varieties of the dish, even Luxury Sausage, “for the very special moments in life, curry wurst with gold leaf, served with champagne.”

Oh right. Nothing says luxury like a pimped-up sausage. Try saying this to your girlfriend: “Honey, I won the national lottery today, so tonight it’s gold leaf curry wurst and bubbly! Honey? Honey?”

Some of those dishes look like they’d take some serious Curry-age to try!! I mean, some of them might be really hot … dogs.

I should be tortured for those terrible puns … do your wurst!

So if it’s not in Berlin where is the condom museum, with the singing, dancing penis? I think I’d change my family vacation from Berlin to this new location just to see that.

Reminds me of the Curb Your Enthusiam rerun I saw tonight with the chocolate cake that was shaped like that. Killed my appetite for cake!
