Behold The “Love Sausage!”
Sometimes sharing a “What The Friday” is so easy – like this week, thanks to a cheeky Valentines Day special.
A hilarious promotion from the London-based Marks & Spencer store is getting all sorts of online attention ahead of this Valentine’s Day – attention they caused with this tweet!
I found the story at the great newspaper The Independent from London, who reports:
Marks & Spencer has announced the launch of a new food product for Valentine’s Day: the ‘Love Sausage’, a heart-shaped pork sausage wrapped in streaky bacon.
Because, of course, nothing says undying romance better than a 460g sausage.
As can be expected, the Internet has reacted to the supermarket’s reveal with a great deal of incredulity, with many pointing out the evident sexual connotations of the meaty product.
“Someone in marketing must be very pleased with themselves for managing to sneak this past their boss,” one person tweeted.
The Guardian goes on to report:
The ‘Love Sausage’, which costs £5 and will be available to purchase in stores from 8 February, has been described by the retailer as being the “ultimate meaty delight for Valentine’s breakfast in bed”.
The product doesn’t come with eggs, as the promotional picture suggests.
However, it does come with a hint of truffle, which has been included specifically due to the ingredient’s supposed aphrodisiac qualities.
Well, it actually sounds pretty good, even though it was clearly designed to get your attention with the product title!
As I’ve said before, “What The Friday” is a place to share the wild, weird and wacky from the internet – and with Valentine’s Day coming up, this did the trick!
Let me know if this is on your Valentine’s Day menu!
