Exit the dragon


A friend of mine sent me a link the other day to a new website he was putting the finishing touches to.

It was a fun site, but I couldn’t help noticing the lengthy disclaimer tucked away at the bottom of the home page.

Surely in this day and age you’d think people were smart enough to get by without all the small print rules and regulations.

Then again….

A sausage maker in Wales has been ordered to rename his Welsh Dragon Sausages because they don’t contain any dragon meat!

Talk about bureaucracy gone mad.

A spokesman for the Powys council said, "The product Welsh Dragon Sausage was not sufficiently precise to inform a purchaser of the true nature of the food.”

Perhaps after they’ve renamed the sausages they could add a big yellow ‘No dragons were harmed in the making of these sausages’ label.
