Conchita wurst gets a sausage in her honour

Eurovision Song contest winner Conchita Wurst has had a sausage named in her honour created by the butcher near her family home in Bad Mitterndorf in Styria in southern Austria.

Butcher Joe Aichinger, 38, created the Conchita Wurst as a tribute to the village's most famous inhabitant and was delighted when she made a surprise visit to the shop and even helped him selling them after a visit to see her parents who run a nearby guesthouse. Wurst is the German word for sausage.

He said that the sausage creation was selling well and added: "It's extra spicy, just like she is."

And he was delighted when Conchita turned up and donned a white coat to help him sell the sausage to locals.

Asked what she thought about the creation she said: "It looks good, but I never imagined it would be so big."

She said: "Wurst is after all my name, it’s from the German expression it's all sausage, which means I don't care. It's all sausage after all if I am man, or a woman."

Village priest Michael Unger was an unexpected fan. He said: "I am proud that she stands to what she is."

He even gave her a pack of sausages to take with her. And the first person that was given a sample was the Danish ambassador to Austria, Liselotte Plesner, who had given her tips on the language before her trip to Copenhagen.
