Why, you ask, do we here at the Alexandria Daily Poop admonish you to eat sausage this coming Thursday? Because Thursday is February 2nd.
We have decided that what with stupid "holidays" like Festivus and "Star Wars Day" (May the 4th be with you), etc.; that we ought to get in on the fun. So, if ever there was a perfect day to eat sausage, it would be February 2nd.
First off, early February is the rawest part of the winter. Here on the middle part of the East Coast, it's around the time we get our really big snowstorms. Sausage is a great food for that kind of weather. serve it up Italian style with onions and peppers, or German style with sauerkraut. Eat it in patties with breakfast. Or American style on a bun with mustard and/or kraut and/or relish (but NEVER ketchup! EVER!)
More significant is the fact that February 2nd is the day Punxatawny Phil is pulled from his burrow and asked if he sees his shadow up on Gobbler's Knob in Pennsylvania. Yes, February 2nd is GROUNDHOG DAY!
And what is sausage?
It's ground hog, isn't it?
Try not to gag on the lame pun while you enjoy your sausage. Happy Ground Hog Day!
