Do you dare to eat ... Faggots in a famous public place? DON’T BE SHY, send in a photograph, along with your name, address, email address and become a member of our Faggot Photo Gallery.

Who's their target audience, 12-year olds?

The whole site is for 12-year-olds, widdershins.

I have it on good authority that these UK faggots were surreptitiously outed by Tony Blair's press staff. What now? Indigestion?
(bitdamaged, I think Maxim has a entire section in their website with double-entendre food and products from around the world)

Faggot eaters, but that's just a guess.

The Doody family from Dudley, Wolverhampton beat off stiff competition to take their place as The Faces of Mr Brain's Faggots.

This is the kind of ad campaign Darrin would come up with by himself before Samantha helped.

Thanks quonsar, now I finally know what that Williams & Sonoma prawn de-cocker is for.

bitdamaged, are you with the Brains PR people? For the benefit of non-UK readers, this stems from an ongoing attempt (covered in a recent TV documentary) to 'sex up' the image of this rather folksy product. It was kind of difficult, given their dour failure to admit the problem of the name's double entendre.

And here I've thought all along that faggots were nothing but little bundles of sticks...

Seriously (well, as seriously as can be managed, given where all this is heading...): is this a real product? I mean, really? I could walk into a grocery in England and buy these?!

Yes, 100% real. Breaded meatballs would be a kinder name.

Why buy faggots when you can make your own?

I'm quite fond of Schweddy Balls and Schweddy Weiners.

Hey, nice photo, quonsar. It looks awfully familiar.

When I first came to the UK I was unable to believe that Mr Brain's Faggots were for real. But they are, I've seen them in Asda. In the Asda at Merry Hill, Dudley, to be precise. Hooray for the English, I say. And now for a pint of mild and that 5 lb bag of pork scratchings I got at the market down the Bull Ring.

Hey, nice photo, quonsar. It looks awfully familiar.

it ought to. it was an item on your blog back in 2001. i linked it from blort. it now turns up as a result in an unfiltered google image search on 'quonsar'.

Actually, I took the damn photo myself, and posted it in my photo folder. Next time, please ask before you lift, mmkay? Or I'll make you try some of Mr Brain's Faggots. Mmmm, offal.

Good lord, quonsar. Do I dare ask why a search on your name brings up a photo of a phone in someone's bum? I dare.

"Do I dare ask why a search on your name brings up a photo of a phone in someone's bum?"

Because it's not just someone's bum.

Dr Faggot and the Mr Brain’s Faggot Family will accompany you aboard a double-decker bus for your personal tour of the Black Country.

Um, this is quite possibly the most surreal and unbelievable promotion in the history of capitalism. But then again, it's not my idiom and all I can do is laugh convulsively and hope Dr. Faggot comes to take me away. Great post, bitdamaged.

A "delicious West Country sauce" = sticky gravy.

What next? A post commenting on how hilarious it is that the Brits call cigarettes "fags"? Or that Americans call their trousers "pants"?
