Finally, someone has taken the initiative and smashed whatever euphemistic resonance that has traditionally surrounded the bratwurst/sausage/hot dog, now consciously highlighting (to anyone who wasn’t previously aware) just how offensive pork chorizo really is.
Big Sculpture Roast (大雕烧), a street food vendor at the Fengjia Night Market (逢甲夜市) in Taiwan’s Taichung City (台中市), has tapped into the local angst over the decline of maleness in the 21st century, marketing sausages press-wrapped in an outer cake layer that resembles the representative emblem of masculine identity. In other words, these are the most homoerotic pigs-in-a-blanket we’ve ever had the, uh, pleasure of coming across.
The owner reported that Big Sculpture Roast sold at least 150 ‘Pieces of Gayke’ a day, with special overseas orders also coming in from Tom Cruise (We kid! Please don’t sue us, Tom).
Though the jury is still out on whether the salacious sausages can aid in pregnancy and erectile dysfunction, we nonetheless applaud whatever soul secure enough in themselves to buy the offending wiener. At least some really arch patrons must be doing it to engage in a bold political statement against traditional patriarchy, by deconstructing and processing male oppression aesthetic systems through mastication.
Down with egg-based phallic icons!
