A SPICY sausage known as the Welsh Dragon will have to be renamed after trading standardsâ€™ officers warned 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.
Jon Carthew, 45, who makes the sausages, said yesterday that he had not received any complaints about the absence of real dragon meat. He said: â€œI donâ€™t think any of our customers believe that we use dragon meat in our sausages. We use the word because the dragon is synonymous with Wales.â€
Yep. The Bloody Leprechaun Irish Red Ale contains no leprechaun.
Oh, and when someone asks you to go “snipe hunting”, you’re probably not going to catch any snipe.
