November 11th, 2015: Busted Banger Branch

What's that caught in the branches of that tree? It looks like... could it be, oh my god, some guy's busted banger? Shredded sausage?

............

Yes, yes it is, however it's a British banger, or breakfast sausage to you colonials.

Quote:
The contest at the Harwich sausage festival is adjudicated by a cricket umpire "to prevent cheating", organisers said.
The record for the furthest-thrown "standard raw" sausage stands at 150ft and 6in (45.9m) and is held by Nick Alway, who also won this year's event.
The event is organised by Tendring's branch of Camra (Campaign for Real Ale) and is now in its fifth year.
"There's a bit of sausage-throwing but the serious business is sampling sausages from nine local producers," said Richard Oxborrow, vice chair of Tendring Camra and one of the festival organisers.
"Nick's been the champion for three years now. He's been pursued by several people but they just can't throw their sausages as far as he can."

Tendring Camra posted a photo on Twitter of one of the less successful throws of the competition, captioned: "The last throw's trajectory was interrupted".

I would only identify that as a sausage in my nightmares.

I note the 'sarcasm' smiley, and perhaps I'm missing something, but I'll press on.

The article quoted is from the BBC website which uses English as written and spoken in the UK. Organised is quite correct.

So, you admit you do it wrong over there.

English is like Linux. It's an open source language which we graciously allow anyone to use and adapt to their own requirements.

We still hold the copyright on the kernel.

Genius.


Gravdigr  Wednesday Nov 11 03:21 PM

Kernel who?



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Nov 11 03:36 PM

Not kernel, colonel.



HitTheLake  Thursday Nov 12 11:59 AM

Yeah, I fully realise the spelling differences, but it always pops out at me and I just felt the need to joke about it because, well, as I read each one, it's like a little "bang" goes off in my head. I could have been a proofreader in another life. But I'd have to stick to one sub-dialect apparently.

Ethnocentrism: judging another culture solely by the values and standards of one's own culture

Thus my "html" tags in my message. Heh.



glatt  Thursday Nov 12 12:38 PM

Oh, they all got the joke, They were going along with it.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Nov 12 08:38 PM

Yes, what glatt said. We cool.
