The confused boerewors. Images of Canberra

boerewors

So I came across this in Dickson Woolies yesterday.

We have a package of “The British Sausage Co”, claiming to be “uniquely Australian” in selling us a South African sausage?

Don’t get me wrong, I love a Boerewors and it’s a great way to cook sausage for large numbers. (it cooks in a spiral, turns easily, and then you chop to length when serving).

But how do you go calling that definitively Afrikaaner food a “British Sausage” which, better still is “Uniquely Australian”?

Do words mean nothing at all to these people?

Here in the niknak household, we love a good sausage.

Finar.

That said, those curly ones are known as grogan sausages cus they look like something the dog turned out.

They are delicious. The trick is NOT to prick them or burst them. They need to cook with the fat inside the skin.

within the ACT nearly twice as many people open a page on RiotACT in a week as look at anything at all on Twitter.

You’d have the stats! Out of interest, is the ‘referrer’ field in the logs different for those who viewed a page from a tweet link?

    Different tweet links are different sort of referrers. All the bit.ly style things are their own beast in the logs.

Twitter’s a very weak attractor compared to the front page of this site.

Just wondering. I don’t often see you retweet a link to a story…

This is the most viewed story on the site so far today.

You put out an extra Twitter ‘tweet’ re: this thread. I wonder if that helped raise interest/views?

Yes, I find myself flicking back to this thread lots. Which, for a vegetarian, is odd. Must not analyse that too much. Perhaps every Wednesday should be Fryday?
