What you always wanted to know about sausages
  1. The word sausage comes from the Latin word salsus, which means something salted
  2. Sausages are eaten at 71% of UK BBQs - not a surprise?!
  3. 50% of British households buy sausages at least once a month
  4. Sausages were called 'bangers' during WWII because they exploded when fried, due to the high water content- I always wondered why they were called that
  5. Sausages are mentioned in Homer's Odyssey

There, now you have some dinner party fodder in case you were stuck!
