"The pork cuts are trimmed to remove excess fat, which provides a fat content to the sausage of approximately 20%, significantly lower than the 35% usual for a bratwurst sausage."

full (well, at least partial) disclosure:  I'm the owner / driver of a TDI Jetta Sportwagen which had its pollution control system emasculated 'corrected'

The second CD of Alestorm's ("True Scottish Pirate Metal") recent offering "Curse Of The Crystal Coconut" contains "16th Century" versions of the tracks on the first disc.  I am intrigued :D

This came up on IRC earlier... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erfurt_latrine_disaster

King Heinrich was said to have survived only because he sat in an alcove with a stone floor.
