It's actually knackwurst, but the corrupted form yields a much better pun.

2023-03-25 Rerun commentary: Apparently "knockwurst" is a common alternative pronunciation for this style of sausage in the USA, so this pun wasn't quite as bad as I thought at the time.

Also apparently, it's used in a thing called a sailor sandwich, which I'd never heard about before checking the Wikipedia page for knackwurst again now.
