PIC: This Austrian Sausage Has A Uniquely Irish Name And It’s Pretty Hilarious

That’s what a lot of Germans and Austrians do, where they shorten the word Knackwurst, a pork sausage, into ‘knacker’ a word used here in a lot of ways, ranging from meaning ‘I’m super tired’ to a derogatory term for a member of the Travelling community.

Reddit user Tyrannosaurusjimmy spotted this mishap, saying he has a feeling that it wouldn’t sell too well over here, and we have to agree.
