Wurst War

In a Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 photo, A crew from Ptacek's IGA carefully turns a giant brat on the grill while attempting to set a world record for the longest brat in Prescott, Wis. Two western Wisconsin communities are disputing who gets bragging rights to the biggest bratwurst after last week's news accounts of Prescott's world-record-setting bratwurst, which was 52 feet, 2 inches long. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports some in Dallas, Wis. heard about it and protested, saying they've grilled big bratwursts the last four years for Oktoberfest and this year's was 135 feet long. But Dallas didn't get the official record because they didn't use a bun and didn't pay the $1,900 fee to the World Record Academy in Florida. (AP Photo/Pioneer Press, Scott Takushi)
