China's Angry Birds Sausage Is a Cruel Reminder

Ever wonder what happens to the pigs in Angry Birds after they're toppled? In the game, they go "poof" into a cloud of smoke. In real life, they end up on dinner tables.


Chinese food maker Joycome is running a promotion with Angry Birds—the game is huge throughout Asia. Buy 800 grams worth of Joycome bacon and get free Angry Birds sausage.

The sausage is regular old Joycome sausage with different Angry Birds characters slapped on the packaging. And no, the pork sausage is not, like the in-game pigs, green.
