Battling bratwursts, old cheese make news in '12

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - It was the best of years, it was the wurst of years.

   When it comes to odd news in Wisconsin in 2012, there has been no shortage: a fundraising pony, a criminal with the name Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop and a uniquely Wisconsin feud pitting town vs. town over which the biggest bratwurst.

   There were also stories that could only come from Wisconsin like the discovery of a 40-year-old block of cheddar that eventually sold for $10 an ounce.

   This year saw a candidate for U.S. Senate using a piglet named Mr. Favors on the campaign trail, a miniature pony that raised money for the Salvation Army and mysterious booms in Clintonville later blamed on a rash of small earthquakes.
