A favourite tweet so far is from Historic Environment Scotland. Definitely a real thing..
So we had a look in the archives to see if we could find anything for #UKSausageWeek (definitely a real thing) and it turns out yes! According to #Canmore, this carved man in a Paisley church is eating a sausage. Other interpretations may be available. https://t.co/LsbNKLvJim pic.twitter.com/6ZYkTQbTMj
