German cold cuts just got a lot hotter with the debut of Conchita Wurst sausage.
Joe Aichinger, a 38-year-old butcher in Bad Mitterndorf in Styria, has made a special sausage to pay tribute to the Eurovision
Speaking to the Austrian Times, he said that the sausage, which features Conchita’s face, is selling well: “It’s extra spicy, just like she is.”
Conchita grew up in the village and her parents still run a guesthouse nearby. Aichinger was thrilled when Conchita popped by to sample the meat, and to help sell a few.
“It looks good, but I never imagined it would be so big,” Conchita said. “Wurst is after all my name, it’s from the German expression it’s all sausage, which means I don’t care. It’s all sausage after all if I am man, or a woman.”
