I’m Josh. I make sausage,
and bacon and ham,
baloney and roast beef,
and turkey and Spam.

I also make meatloaf,
pancetta, pastrami,
prosciutto and hot dogs,
corned beef and salami.

But liverwurst sausage
is what I do best,
and everyone likes it
much more than the rest.

If anyone asks you,
you heard it here first.
I’m Josh. I make sausage.
My best is the wurst.
