Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that wonders who came up with the idea for sausage. We were thinking this after mowing a butt-load of snausages at the Frisco Oktoberfest last night (or at least we plan to, as of this writing). Who thinks of these things?

True dat. Breck Elementary, get your act together! Kids, put some pressure on your principal to get this handled. We know you can be very persuasive!
