“If you’re gonna burst through the door unannounced, waving a German sausage, knockwurst!”

Knockwurst has nothing to do with knocking on a door, but there are jokes.

“If you’re gonna burst through the door unannounced, waving a German sausage, knockwurst!” (meaning “knock first") was posted on Twitter by Wynne McLaughlin on December 8, 2010. The joke was reposted on Twitter on June 23, 2012.

“The lowest ranked door to door salesperson is awarded a knockwurst” (meaning “knock worst") was posted on Twitter by Binner on July 10, 2017. “Reminds me that the lowest ranked door-to-door salesman is awarded a knockwurst” was posted on Twitter by Binner on July 4, 2022.


Wikipedia: Knackwurst
Knackwurst (German pronunciation: [ˈknakˌvʊʁst]) (in North America sometimes spelled knockwurst) refers to a type of sausage of northern German origin from the mid-16th century. The many available varieties depend on the geographical region of their production.
