Mad-cap mayor’s sausage costume mistaken for giant penis as she welcomes Olympic torch
Mad-cap Mayoress Jill Makinson-Sanders was left feeling a right silly sausage when she welcomed the Olympic torch wearing this costume which was mistaken for a giant penis.
Unsuspecting Jill, 61, wore the naughty novelty costume to promote the famous Lincolnshire sausage when the Olympic flame came to her sleepy town.
Instead of donning her traditional mayoral chain and robes to greet the torch, the councillor dressed up in an 8ft-tall pink costume which was supposed to represent the great British banger.
But stunned residents of Louth gasped in horror on Wednesday as dozens claimed she looked more like a giant phallus.
Mum-of-two Sandra Ellington, 38, said: “She probably thought she was being quite fun and quirky - but it backfired a little bit.
“People couldn’t take their eyes off her because it looks so rude - her outfit certainly gained a few titters among the crowd.
“It’s something you’d expect to see on a stag-do - not being worn by a respectable mayor.
“She didn’t carry the torch but when you saw her running down the street by the torch relay team nearby it really looked like she was wearing something obscene.”
I can’t find Louth on the map. I wonder if it’s right next door to Devizes*?
There once was a man (or a mayoress perhaps) from Devizes
Whose balls were of several sizes
One was so small
It was no ball at all
But the other won several prizes!
Actually, I CAN find Louth on the map. It’s home to the Monks Dyke Technology College, and a bit down the road from Scunthorpe. No wonder they make such good sausages there.
OK, I officially nominate Drew for the “Growner of the month” award for that ball remark.
