Extolling the Virtues of Johnsonville Sausage on The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan

Episode Description

It was all a dream. One day, Chris Brogan said he had Johnsonville Bratwursts for the first time in a long time and loved them. He then started creatively portraying (pretending) that Johnsonville was a sponsor of The Backpack Show. The people at Johnsonville (several decades of success selling mostly sausage products) thought Chris was “cute” (not their words) and sent him some tee shirts. “That’ll shut him up,” they probably thought. But no. Chris got on the phone with one Stephanie D. (real name) and said, “Look, give us a tiny bit of sponsor money and we’ll do X, and it’ll be whatever and we’ll leave you alone. BUT, if you’re crazy, give us a bag of money and we’ll use some of it to buy a LOT of sausages.” At this point, Kerry O'Shea Gorgone busted in and yelled*, “For Sister Anne and the nuns! Let’s shower them in sausages!” And so, there will be nuns with sausages. Stop smirking! And several friends. Come watch. *Kerry takes issue with this characterization, but Chris insists that’s how he remembers the conversation going.
