Celebrate The Legacy Of Martin Luther King Jr. At The MLK Day 2018 Parade, Let ‘Em Go With Nathan Kalish & The Lastcallers At Three Links And Jam At A Couple Of Open Mics.

Sausages are a godsend sometimes — and not just because of their delicious, protein-rich natures. In fact, they can also come in clutch in emergencies.

That’s what a British butcher in Totnes, Southwest England learned after his walk-in freezer door shut on him. Apparently, however –though sitcoms would want you to think otherwise — there is a safety mechanism inside.

But that safety mechanism is of no use if its frozen in place. Call in the hero sausages. The butcher used a blood sausage as a ‘battering ram’ to strike the button. It clicked after a few hits and he was able to escape.

So if you find yourself in a sticky situation today, be sure to reach for that sausage — OK, OK, maybe the power of the sausage can’t be applied to every scenario, but that critical think can come in handy. Think of this list of things to do as your sausage battering ram that will help you escape from a  fate of not having anything fun to do tonight.
