You Can’t Possibly Be Smart Enough ……

by Adam Selene

In the “consumers are really dumb, which is why you need us bureaucrats to make decisions for you” category, we have this story. A company that manufactures a sausage known as Welsh Dragon sausage has to change the name of the sausage. Why?

… standards’ officers warned manufacturers that they could face prosecution because it does not contain dragon.

The response of the manufacturer?

Jon Carthew, 45, who makes the sausages, said yesterday that he had not received any complaints about the absence of real dragon meat.

That’s right folks, you are incapable of realizing that the sausage is not made from a mythical creature. Remember to thank your government for spending your tax dollars wisely.

Welsh Dragons are manufactured by Black Mountain Smokery.
