There’s not much dragon in it…

The Times reports that some Trading Standards officials are suffering from a severe case of literal mindedness. Or are at least crazier than a very crazy thing on its least sensible day.

A spicy sausage known as the Welsh Dragon will have to be renamed after trading standards’ officers warned the manufacturers that they could face prosecution because it does not contain dragon. The sausages will now have to be labelled Welsh Dragon Pork Sausages to avoid any confusion among customers.

Obviously lots of people were irate when they realised that their sausages were made from bits of pig rather than actual Welsh dragons. Silly people. Surely they know dragons are a protected species?

Found via Boing Boing after some random clickage. The Times had a funnier headline, though.
