Dept. of You Can't Make This Shit Up

Holy wow. Everything about this article is amazing. Those BBC newshounds left no innuendo uninnuendoed in writing the masterpiece, so I will excerpt but a snippet here and urge you to read the entire thing:
A West Midlands family is playing a central role in the quest to raise the profile of a forgotten British dish - faggots.

The Doody family from Wolverhampton has been crowned The Faggot Family in a national competition, and to kick off their reign they will launch National Faggot Week.
World, meet the faggot-loving Doody family. Yes, you heard me right. No, this was not posted on The Onion. Now go read the whole thing.

[Ed.: So I looked more closely, and the story is from five years ago, but this only makes me wonder how the hell I missed it back then.]
