The story began 54 years ago when Flora Zimbelman placed an uncooked weiner in her sister Rose's suitcase as a practical joke. When her sister arrived in Idaho, she discovered the prank. Thus the 54-year-old game of "Hide the Sausage" was born.
Rose mailed the weiner back to her sister, telling her to keep it. The hyjinks continued for years to come, as the sisters would find devious ways of pawning off the weiner on each other. It showed up under pillows, behind curtains and other places.
Earlier this year, Rose succumbed to cancer, thus the game came to an end after 54 years of pranking each other. Flora still has the disgusting looking piece of meat. Although she misses her sister dearly, she'll gladly show it to you if asked.
