The bratwurst effect

Iran is playing hard ball and is going to seriously piss off the Krauts.

But the most bizarre report on the consequences of sanctions against Iran comes courtesy of USA Today, which serves up a report from Germany on the rising price of bratwurst, which is made with sheep intestines imported from Iran:

Some suggest Iran is intentionally punishing Germany with the shortage. Rainer Heimler, president of the Society for the Protection of Nuremberg Bratwurst, which defends the good name of the sausage from the low-quality imitations, said he doubts the connection between politics and bratwurst inflation.

“I cannot imagine that as revenge on Europe, Iran might refuse to deliver intestines to prevent the Germans from eating bratwurst,” Heimler said.

    thanks for the heads up Whaleoil, I’ll never eat Bratwurst in Germany, especially after those goat shaggers have had their best go at defiling the beasts prior to exports for the infidels
