Lembit's sausage bitten by sausage dog

You may have heard of Harold Davidson, the Rector of Stiffkey (which, I had better add, is pronounced 'Stewkey').

Convicted on charges of immorality and defrocked by the Church, Davidson protested his innocence. To raise funds for his reinstatement campaign he exhibited himself in a barrel on the Blackpool seafront and performed in other sideshows of a similar nature. He died after being attacked by a lion in whose cage he was appearing in a seaside show in Skegness.

The parallels with the recent career of Lembit Opik - reality TV star, comedian, wrestler, pop impresario - are all too apparent.

And, reports the Mirror, he has recently had an experience similar to that of Davidson in Skegness:
Former MP Lembit Opik needed his sausage seeing to – after it was bitten by, erm, a sausage dog. 
The I’m a Celebrity star told how the dachshund left him feeling rough when it attacked him at a show in aid of Guide Dogs which he was judging. 
Mr Opik – who lost his Lib Dem seat in 2010 – nearly lost a lot more when the little dog leapt up and nipped his privates last week in Lambeth Park, South London. 
The 48-year-old, once engaged to Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia, said: “Nothing had prepared me for one frisky four-legged ‘friend’ which insisted on taking a bad-tempered munch on my meat and two veg.”
Let's hope Lembit treats this as an Awful Warning. The dog is believed to have made a full recovery.
