“Laws, like sausages, cease to inspire respect in proportion as we know how they are made”

A much disputed quote, often attributed to Otto von Bismarck or Winston Churchill. Research indicates that the lawyer-poet John Godfrey Saxe may have uttered it first. No matter who said it; we shall prove it untrue. Behold! A fascinating look at making sausage in Romania, complete with graphic pictures. At left you see a sausage mistress blowing through the intestines to check for leaks.

Don’t be afraid of what you eat. You should know what’s going into your body.
