Keep it (Pork) Sausage, Stupid

You know the old saying "Keep it Simple, Stupid", also known as "the KISS principle" (and rebadged by the politically correct as "Keep it Short and Simple", apparently)? Well it turns out that the concept of Welsh Dragon sausages not actually being made of dragon is too complicated for the officers of Welsh Trading Standards, because they have forced the manufacturer to rebadge their product as Welsh Dragon Pork Sausages.

Now we all know that the Welsh are associated with certain, ahem, unfortunate stereotypes. But I never heard of one who didn't know that dragons are mythical.

Oh well, at least it gave everyone another opportunity to drag out an old pun.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a rather important appointment with the Head Elf.
