Just tell me where I can find these 'healthstartsinthekitchen' bastards. I'll show them what a sausage is.

That's a meat patty. And if it's 'healthy', you're missing the point of sausages entirely.

I find that in these moments of calm and prosperity when there's nothing important happening in the world, we can take the time to address these important issues.

I will respect Lorne as an ethnic delicacy, and another great contender for "ways to serve sausage-meat" but, and I hate to be pedantic on this point, it's NOT A FUCKING SAUSAGE!
    noun Finely chopped and seasoned meat, especially pork, usually stuffed into a prepared animal intestine or other casing and cooked or cured.
    noun A small cylinder-shaped serving of this meat.
minced pork, beef, or other meats, often combined, together with various added ingredients and seasonings, usually stuffed into a prepared intestine or other casing and often made in links.
A sausage consists of minced meat, usually pork, mixed with other ingredients and is contained in a tube made of skin or a similar material.
a thin, tube-like case containing meat that has been cut into very small pieces and mixed with spices:
1noun An item of food in the form of a cylindrical length of minced pork or other meat encased in a skin, typically sold raw to be grilled or fried before eating.
1.1mass noun Minced and seasoned meat encased in a skin and cooked or preserved, sold mainly to be eaten cold in slices.
1.2usually as modifier An object shaped like a sausage.

In the ineterests of fairness, Miriam-Webster let me down with their second definition, but they're Americans so we can't take their word when it comes to lexicography can we?
sausage noun
: a highly seasoned minced meat (such as pork) usually stuffed in casings of prepared animal intestine
also : a link or patty of sausage
This is clearly wrong. Even Judge Dredd, alerted by the shape and construction but without any pork, beef, or herbs, knew one when he saw one:

Too many people confusing inconvenience and restricted choice with oppression

I’m concerned about reactionary right-wing governments, like our own, using this whole Covid mess as a pretext for seizing more power, but at the same time we have to recognise that inconvenience is a small price to pay for keeping a potentially horrific death toll down.

I wage a constant war between my principles and my inner Judge Dredd. Yesterday, for the first time since the trams reopened, I saw police come on and chuck off anyone who wasn't wearing a mask couldn't suddenly find the mask in their pocket they'd 'forgotten' to put on - four big guys in stab vests and a dog. That always makes me uneasy, but my Little Mo was saying cube 'em all!

Ah yes, I did chuckle at that one. Took it as a generic droid-grouse rather than Pat-specific though, but he is the Daddy of that club.

Perth? Oh yeah, I'm in ... maybe this could lure a certain fish from transatlantic exile?

so what about sausage rolls?

A sausage roll is a pastry confection filled with sausage meat. It is not a sausage.

You know when you keep saying a word and it starts to sound weird? same aplies to typing apparently - I just had to triple check the spelling of sausage.

Anyone notice what I assume is a thinly veiled swipe at Pat in this month’s Megazine?

I don't want to go through the whole thing looking ... so for me the answer is no - what was it?

I've had this argument many times, but THAT ISN'T A SAUSAGE! It's a square of sausage-meat. If it ain't in a skin, it ain't a sausage!

Speaking of which... "Bartender... Same again."

It's a long time since I heard, or said, that.  :(

Speaking of which, I don't know why The Poke is moaning about these.  They're fecking arsom.


My eye was drawn to the ad next to that article ... remind me - what's 2,500 times nothing?

Less attention is being paid to the National Guard's response: "ummmm .. we don't have one?"

Weetabix or Cornflakes, Labour? Cornabix, they replied.

This is just blatant factionalism by disaffected Weetflakista agitators

Mine arrived today, so that was this evening taken care of. It's fantastic!

I already collected my kickstarter reward at thought bubble last year, but it was nice to find a free sticker and cool keyring/LED torch included (courtesy of Laser ToolsTM - now that's what I call a shirt sponsorship!). I almost threw this out with the packaging.

Great story, great art, what can I say? I'm preaching to the choir here. There's a sports reporter I'm sure I've heard of, and loads of familiar names in the 'thank you' list (Karen Berger? wow), including my favourite: "That guy that writes the letters to 2000ad" - well done Tom!

All this, and the collected wisdom of Kevin Keegan too.

Last year, I eventually gave up trying to get Brexiteers to explain how we could have no border with Eire, no border in the Irish Sea, and yet take back control of our borders. The contradictory cast-iron guarantees are coming home to roost and I'm still curious how this magic is supposed to happen.
