Mayors do the funniest things
The Mayor of Louth has made national headlines after an Olympic Torch Relay stunt - with many people saying her novelty sausage costume was mistaken for a penis.
Councillor Jill Makinson-Sanders, 61, wore the unusual 8ft-tall pink costume to promote the famous Lincolnshire sausage on the national stage.
Is it really that penis-like? Not many have two sticky legs at one end – or a cheeky face, eyebrows and a penchant for carrying literature around (so far as I know, anyway).
Despite this plea, Coun Makinson-Sanders secured the 'phallic' costume and stunned many residents in the Lincolnshire town who branded it 'obscene'.
Oh get over yourselves.
Comments on Wednesday's story on This is Lincolnshire included: "The costume makes her look like a gentleman's appendage," and "she is clearly deluded if she thinks that costume looks anything like a sausage."
What would make it look more sausage-esque? A few pricks with a fork? Ahem.
Some local residents have defended the mayoress - even praising her for being bold and imaginative initiative.
Some mayors get up to far worse!!
