SAUSAGE-loving Germans are being offered degrees in their favourite subject - bangers.
Expert Norbert Wittmann has set up the Sausage Academy in Neumarkt to offer qualifications in the appreciation and preparation of German sausages.
Students can earn a BA diploma - Banger Authority - by boosting their studies with extra seminars in lager choices, mustard appreciation and which oompah band music goes with different types of sausage.
Academy principal Wittmann explained: "I love it. I have to eat white sausage twice a day. Sunday is the only day I don't eat white sausage.
"I have students from all over the world and I am glad to be spreading the good news about German sausage around the globe," he added.
Serious students can go on to take a masters' course in what German's consider the holy grail or sausage - the Bavarian white.
According to the Austrian Times 1,300 students graduated this year with the BA certificate.
Maybe a school can go up 2 blocks from Ground Zero in NYC.
I suggest post-graduate work in Beerology
The Beer and sausages in Munich ruined my happiness. You see, i came back home,,,,
...and Spaniards are known for their degrees in sausage hiding!
Why not? You can get degrees in political science. Sausage making, political science, what’s the difference?
I have a family member that’s getting her Masters in Television Management from Drexel. That’s right, 7 yrs of school to run a TV station.
Hey! I have a Political Science degree! Well yeah, maybe you’re right! LOL!!
And Carnegie-Mellon University offers a BA in Bagpipe Performance. I went to college too soon.
I never sausage a thing.
There are two things you do *not* want to know how they’re made: Sausages and laws.
Good sausage is a nice thing, and somebody has to make it. This isn’t the wurst idea I’ve heard today.
