Must be some sort of null placeholder to resolve special orders.

Exactly what it is - to allow you to buy an item (that isn't in the shop, that is  for any cost)
Whatever it is, it's probably in the post from Germany...

"Eine Extrawurst bestellen", literally "ordering a special sausage", is a common term in German for ordering something, which is not on the menu (for example one pan cake, when the menu suggest only two, or rice instead of a salad as a side dish, etc.), this is also applied to other "special demands", not only in restaurants.

In some restaurants (in frankfurt especially) you can order sausages "mit musik" (with music) and that's not classical music :)

Haha, one should try and order such a sausage from CundCo. Just for the sake of trying. However, it is 0,01 €...

I did think that ordering 1 Extrawurst would be a low impact way to send any clarifying text to the order picking team (say you buy a School and you want a red bag with a green Teacher if possible) - I don't see any other obvious way to add that info in the order...

And who says they don't have a sense of humour in Germany? :D

Seems kind of reminiscent of their "Rotten Eggs" which were available to "buy" last Easter. I've still got a bad taste in my mouth from mine...

Haha, Hunnymonster! Where did you find that video? I'm still lying on the floor laughing! I'm soooo sorry that the majority of you can't understand what they say about the game in the video. It's hilarious!

Just to give a brief summary: The game refers to the many British opt-outs in the EU and the recent negotiations between the UK and the EU about treaty modifications. Here are two translations:

"A game for a Briton and any number of idiots from other European countries."
"Everytime when Europe gets on your nerves, you simply draw an Extrawurst."

I hope that non of our dear british fellows is offended by neither the game, nor that I laught about the video.  ^-^

@ dan: So you got a Rotten Egg from CundCo? I always wondert what it might have been. But maybe you shouldn't have eaten it if you still got the bad tast in your mouth. :D

I'm certainly not offended by it - I shall say no more lest we descend into politics...

Us Brits seem to get it right in a political sense, although I'm probably lying...
