Subject: RE: BS: Hide the weenie
DougR I still sing Coal Tatto which I think is one of his songs, and Red Winged Blackbird??

Anyway back to weenies, I assume this is a contraction of Weiner which if memory serves is a person native to the town of Wein, or Vienna in Austria. Why you should want to hide a person from there mystifies me, but hey you got to make allowances for the strange customs of foreigners.

Sausages on the other hand is a horse of a different colour. Here in Scotland we have the Lorne sausage which is about 2 feet long and 4" square, this is cut into slices and fried [ouch!!] We also have butchers sausages or links, which we hide in our stomachs due to our national cholesterol cholesterol addiction. See song list

A friend of mine went out with a large lady for a while, and reported back with the immortal words, "It wis like flingin' a sossidge up a close, so it wis"

I suppose it won't be too long before someone mentions Cummberland sausage which is about a foot long, and comes in a coil.
