What is it with sausages? You go to the butcher and you buy a kilo of sausages for a BBQ. You then take them home for the BBQ and start to cook them on the BBQ, only to find them loose half their weight from fat that leaches out. Now that of course is a good thing – loosing the fat. What I want to introduce into society is an international standard for sausage weight that states a sausage cannot be any less than such a weight when cooked for it to be a legal and compliant sausage.
Why do I say that? Because consumers are being ripped off all over the country by purchasing sausages that are less in weight after they are cooked than what they weighed prior to cooking. Some sausages shrink to half their size or more. Consumers everywhere should rise up against such injustice and demand change. Only when sausage eaters everywhere do so can we expect a fair go for the average sausage eater, the little bloke of sausage eating who just can’t get a good banger on the BBQ anymore.
Now don’t get me started about the quality of meat in a sausage!
