I imagine the female sausages are inverted.

I was pretty sure the bun was invented to satisfy women. Or maybe that was bratwurst, I always forget.

James!: I imagine the female sausages are inverted.


How they managed to put the casing on the inside is anyone's guess.

For a few days every month, they're filled with blood.

i couldn't get my wife to dry boudin noir to save her life...

though, around my domestic circle, i think of male sausage as normal boudin and female sausage as crawfish boudin.

No pics of the female sausage? Come on!

"I found the whole thing really quite unbearable, and I showed it to my partner, and she got really angry," Enz told The Local in an email.

"So I said to myself, if these sausage-sexists make my partner so angry, I can't just let it go! I wanted to at least tell them my opinion."


So he's shacking up with a lady who is angry about the sausage?
this will not end well.

the women's sausages were made half the size of their masculine counterparts, and are significantly more expensive.

Where as in the U.S., it's generally cheaper to get a 'woman' with sasuage. And often they are even larger than their male counterparts.

Just be aware of what you are buying, is all I am saying. And check the packaging first, if you can. Because if you pay first, and you find the sausage not to your liking, you are stuck with it for the next hour or so. Unless you want to forfeit your money. And mom taught me never to be wasteful. Just be careful, you know?

Unless, of course, you're in Texas, then you can just shoot any sausage you don't want to eat.

Or so the Germans would have us believe!

Very minor product in a supermarket chain, but of course even that can't prevent some feminists from complaining about "normativism", and that by picking the manly sausage (heyo!), they are forced to transgress nonsensical gender borders. And are forced (forced, I say!) into the ugly stereotype of women wanting to stay thing (as the female-targeted processed meat product is both smaller and healthier).

/But of course if you're called "Susanne Enz", you're probably likely to split hairs.

Fffft. Germans. Everyone knows sausage is male.

So they are. I was hoping for more of a difference. They are harder to tell apart than baby chicks.

No. Die Wurst is female, otherwise it would be der Wurst.

Is it French or Italian where a sausage is either male or female, depending on whether it's raw or not?

Wasn't there some experiment to test German obedience to authority where they had two identical payphones
next to each other, but put signs that said "FOR MEN ONLY" and "FOR WOMEN ONLY" on them, and
something like 96% of people obeyed them?

Sometimes I wonder about The Local. Is it a serious deep-digging news source like Private Eye or Le canard enchainé or is it weird satire like Afterposten or the Daily Fail?
 
2013-06-27 01:12:54 PM
I imagine the female sausages have a slit down the middle so you can put all sorts of condoments in it!
