Well, I have wondered for long enough. What is the correct term for circular square sausage? How could The Mustress find out?
Ha! As ever, the answer was close at hand. I finally had a lightbulb moment earlier today.
I SHOULD START A THREAD ON MUMSNET ABOUT IT.
Yes – this was definitely the only thing to do. All the Scottish members of MN would be able to advise The Mustress.
Huh. After a hundred and three posts, I am disappointed to report that I am none the wiser. Nobody seems to know. There was a good deal of poor SpAG (one cannot start threads on MN without encountering this) and a small proportion of posters considered that The Mustress was a time-waster (now this may be true) but nobody knew what the correct term for circular square sausage was.
And please – do not email me and tell me what you, personally, call it. There is a limit to the quantity of messages which are syntactically incorrect for anyone to endure, and I reached my own limit several hours ago.
In my experience, Mumsnet has strong opinions about absolutely everything, especially if you start a thread in AIBU (Am I Being Unreasonable), which can be a terrifying minefield for the unwary. However, I thought I would get a definitive answer, but I was wrong. Nobody knew.
I blame the Robbing Butcher. He should not have branched out into circular square sausage.
