The male sausage

Arun Verma points me, via email, to an immortal piece of news that begins:
A restaurant that failed to take action against an employee who chased a female co-worker with a sausage dangling from his fly has been ordered to pay damages and lost wages to another woman who witnessed it.
In reaction to this incident, women's groups have begun campaigning for the removal of sausages from the breakfast buffet menus of five-star hotels. They insist that sausages represent a continuation of the male hegemony that the feminist movement has been battling for the last few decades.

Ok, ok, so I made that bit about women's groups up. But it's an absurd world we live in, and anything can happen. In fact, it probably already has.
