  • Welsh Dragon Sausages

    Ok now how many of you would actually think that Welsh Dragon Sausages would actually contain dragon meat?

    It seems that the UK trading standards are worried that there could be confusion ...

    A Welsh food firm last night hit out at bizarre rules that have forced it to explain that its 'dragon sausages' do not really contain dragons.

    The company has been warned it could face legal action for misleading people that it uses dragon meat in its fiery sausages.

    Trading standards chiefs are forcing the meat firm, Black Mountains Smokery, to include the word 'pork' on its labels for their Welsh Dragon Sausages, even though pork is already included on the list of ingredients - and dragons are obviously mythical.

    The clampdown to satisfy the Government's Food Labelling Regulations was yesterday criticised by the Black Mountains Smokery boss.

    Jon Carthew said the sausages had fallen foul of bureaucracy. 'I don't think any of our customers actually believe that we use dragon meat in our sausages,' he said. 'We use the word because the dragon is synonymous with Wales and I think everyone who buys from us knows that.'

    It's a bit like the film "Addams Family Values". Pugsley and Wednesday set up a lemonade stand where they encounter a Girl Guide selling Girl Guide Cookies, who asks if the lemonade is made from real lemons, whereupon comes the rejoinder, "Are they [the cookies] made from real Girl Scouts ?"

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.
