Well-done, Tartare. Food critic pulls a boner.

Local self-proclaimed food critic Pork Tartare was recently banned from posting anymore reviews on the website In the Mood for Food after complaints from a local ethnic group. In a post about a local eatery, Tartare referred to the meat in a sandwich he ate as "Polish Sausage." A group calling itself Poles Are People, Too demanded the website discipline Tartare for demeaning an entire ethnicity by tying its national heritage to a "greasy oblong-shaped piece of meat-like food of questionable origin." They also asked that, in the future, such pieces of meat be referred to as "Irish Sausage."
