Ever cook a sausage and hear a hiss, or a sound that resembles a scream? Well, turns out you’re not the only one.
A video of sausages making what appear to be screaming sounds whilst being cooked was shared on YouTube on Monday, garnering over 527,000 views at the time of writing — but it appears it’s only one of many “sausage screaming” videos.
Many people have taken to YouTube with their videos of seemingly scared sausages, screaming at the top of their little sausage lungs. The videos have become something of their own video genre — and truthfully, I’m into them.
The videos at first glance are little more than meat being browned in a pan, or cooked in a microwave, but the tiny little sausage screams, or whistles will make you giggle uncontrollably.
When sausages emit a loud scream or sizzle it’s typically a combination of factors, such as water in the sausage evaporating or the sausage’s level of fat moisture, British food scientist Stuart Farrimond, a studier of sausage decibels told Extra Crispy in an interview.
Regardless of how these franks reach their high pitched yelps, I plan on playing these bizarre meat sounds on a loop for the rest of the day, and I invite you to do the same.
