    Default Sticker Shock

    This is what I get for not using Campari tomatoes (they don't have
    stickers). This is NOT the first time I've done this. More like
    the 10th time (I do it to peppers, too).

    Once again, you violate the proper etiquette for submitting a
    complaint. As it clearly says in my headers as per Usenet standards:

    X-Complaints-To: [email protected]

    Not to mention your post is off-topic. That's two strikes for you.

    What Trader Joes concoction did you have for dinner, Mark? Some
    centrifuged Nurenburg sausages, by chance?

    Whoa, threadjack! 8

    We've been looking for good Nuremberg (marjoram) sausages in the US for
    many years. Do you have a source that will ship?

    I suggest you redirect your efforts to learning how your computer, the
    internet, and a search engine like Google, works. Total search time I
    spent looking for Nuremberg (marjoram) sausages, about 80 seconds:

    But isn't looking for personal experience a little different than
    someone googling it for you. How were they when you tried them?

    Nice smoked pork butt, but ketchup, ick! Duck sauce would be more
    appropriate, even better is hot oriental mustard, both!

    Which is totally worthless. I asked a specific person (not you) who
    seems to know what Nuremberg sausages are and what they should taste
    like if he knew of a source of authentic tasting sausages.

    Life's too short to try all the possible sources for myself. And I know
    Binkert's -- we were up in Baltimore just yesterday (but not there).

    [And since I'm in a pissy mood: yes, dumbo notbob, I probably know a
    hell of a lot more about my computer (which I built), the Internet (for
    which I coded some of the very first TCP/IP routers at MITRE and BBN),
    and Google than you do. I've been intimately involved full-time in those
    subjects since around 1978, counting my ARPANET days. In the earliest
    days of the Internet, BBN actually printed comprehensive directories of
    everyone on the Internet, which were only about a half-inch thick. I'm
    in them -- are you?]

    If you're referring to me, I just know they look like little breakfast
    sausages. I have never tried them. They are very much a
    niche/boutique product.

    But from what Mark said, TJ's are imported from Germany. And TJ's is
    a German-owned company. But I doubt anybody here is an export in
    Nuremburg sausages.

    They are very tasty little sausages, with very
    nice herbal notes. I don't know how they compare
    with traditional ones, but they fit the description
    very well. I like them a lot.
