Listening to: Rock Steady (Alton Ellis)
It's Bank Holiday so: gales, rain, hail
Yesterday I took delivery of sausage-making equipment, preparing us for the day when Eric and Ernie fulfil their destiny. The main part of it is an electric mincer. It's very nice, very shiny and very German.
In English it's called a meat grinder - in German it's a Fleischwolf, literally a flesh wolf*.
I don't know about you, but I didn't fight two world wars or score a very dodgy goal in the 1966 World Cup Final for the Germans to have far better names for a mincer.
* On reflection, I'm sure you didn't need me to point that out.
