Man Gets Sucked Into Sausage Machine

By Wyatt Earp | May 25, 2010

Note to self: .

DANVERS, Mass. – Police said a cleaning man was taken to a hospital after being sucked into a machine at a sausage-making company in Danvers. The accident happened Thursday night as the man was cleaning the vacuum-type machine that is used to season the meat at DiLigui Sausage Co. Police said the man’s head and shoulders became stuck in the machine after it somehow activated while being cleaned.

Lt. Carole Germano told The Salem News that the man — whose name was not released — was freed from the machine and showed no obvious sign of trauma, but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

The doctors said that while there were some injuries, the bratwurst was over. I’ll bet the patient felt like a real wiener afterward.

    Joe Sestak had a hard first day in his new job. His comment, “Obambi promised me pork, but this is not what I expected”, goes over like a lead filled blood sausage.

    Reminds me of the joke about the man who had to go home and tell his wife that he’d been fired, because after many days of wondering what it would be like to put his unit in the pickle slicer, he’d finally done it.

    “What happened to the pickle slicer?”, she asked.

    “Oh, she was fired, too!”

    Ba- dum- bump. (Beat you to it, Wyatt!)

    Mrs. Crankipants – Very punny!

    Jon – Blood sausage sounds very unappetizing.

    Sully – You mean “The Sausage King of Chicago?”

    MeToo – And business is booming.

    Proof – Well played.

    Check your email for a crazy story about a guy named Kielbasa who got killed in the same way [I do not make this stuff up - heh].

    Jon – Thank you, Rod Serling.

    AJ – Oh dear lord!

    I’m sure there will be a full investigation into this casing.
