Who Stole the Kiszka? (Sausage With Innuendo Laden Songs Associated Warrants A Post)
I know that I am supposed to be on vacation, but this motivates me to post. Pictured above is some Kiszka (alternate spellings abound depending on your nationality- kishka, kasanska, etc...) care of the White Eagle Packing Co. (locals will know this Schenectady area brand). Apparently there is a song devoted to this stuff. Here are some lyrics from Who Stole the Kishka? by Walter Dana-
"You can have my shinka
Take my sweet koscheeke
Take my plump perogi
You can even have my chernika
Take my long kielbasa"
The verse ends with the pleading refrain "but please bring back my kishka." Shinka is ham, while chernika refers to blueberries or bilberries.
I am definitely going to add "take my plump perogi" to my pillow talk repertoire. By the way, the first ingredient listed on the ingredients is pig snout. Anything made with a lion's share of pig snout can't be bad, no? If you have not noticed, this post had been made possible by beer.
