        The WTF? Thread

        From 2009

        The Banger Awards were created by the British Sausage Appreciation Society to honour and recognise Britain’s biggest sausage lovers. Past recipients of these unique Awards include Jonathan Ross, Phil Tufnell, Phil Vickery, Richard and Judy, Al Murray, Chris Evans and Jimmy Doherty. In 2007 Sir Terry Wogan received the first Lifetime Achievement Award for his devotion to the British Sausage and lifetime membership to the British Sausage Appreciation Society.

        Everyone knows there is something a little bit magical about sausages. This year the British Sausage Appreciation Society will aim to uncover the illusion and reveal what makes a really good sausage. Butchers from across the country have entered a national competition and Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee are travelling the country from Monday 2nd November tasting a plethora of the best sizzlers in the country to crown the magical ones in each region. Regional winners will be placed on the official British Sausage Week Map and receive a much sort after Banger Award, plus a donation to a local charity of their choice.

        Paul Daniels, commented: “British Sausage Week is a national institution and an event I am proud to be involved in. Like with a good magic illusion, sausages come in some many varieties and I look forward to finding out what makes a really special sausage.”

          Ah was that it? I completely misread that article, in that case, by the look of it.

          Apologies for the slow follow-up, I totally forgot having made that post.

              I guess the WTF is mostly about the independents, though it is quite startling how nuts the Republicans AND Tea Party are in this regard.

                  That's true. I kind of didn't notice it on account of it actually being the right way around.

                      Ex Subway weight-loss pitchman Jared Fogle has been sentenced to 15+ years for consuming vast quantities of child porn while having sex with 16 year old girls. He kisses goodbye his job, his fortune, his family and his freedom. Good choices, Jared.

                            It's Canadian, so I assume it's something to do with lumber.

                              Ah. Subway restaurants built their advertising around Jared for about a decade. He'd lost over 200 pounds just by eating one of their 'healthy' subs each day for lunch. Made himself a fortune. Then got pinched for this.

                                BTW, when WOM says Subway "restaurants", he means Subway fast food sandwich shops. They are no closer to restaurants in North America than they are anywhere else

                                                He should have done the colour commentary for that Dublin/Galway hurling exhibition at Fenway Park yesterday.

                                                    Not far off the Globe's account

                                                    Aside from the goal scoring and some spectacular (make that, s-p-e-c-t-a-c-u-l-a-r) goalkeeping, the other main highlight was a nasty, at times vicious, melee that broke out midway through the second quarter after Dublin keeper Conor Dooley hit the ground with a knee injury. For the next two minutes, the 21 other players, virtually all with their hurleys in hand, mixed it up in a scene straight out of the NHL, circa early-’70s. (Google: “Broad Street Bullies, fights’’).
