ASDA 2p Sausages

Blimey, ASDA are really getting hammered in the press for selling sausages for 2p each - much of the comment's about the quality of the product (why do we now have to say 'two pee' instead of good old 'tuppence'?).

Now, I'm not going to defend a 2p sausage with only 34% lean meat content. If people want to eat them whatever I say is unlikely to have any effect. I imagine the people who eat these things, either through defective taste buds, or shortage of money, are mighty grateful for what ASDA are doing.

Funny how no-one has taken a pop at Sainsburys who are selling a sausage with an even lower percentage of meat (32%) and have the gall to charge 8p each for them.

Obviously, it's quite allright to sell rubbish as long as it's not cut price!
