The human heart doesn’t remotely resemble the strange shape that popular culture has decided the heart should look like. There’s a big reason why: it’s pleasing to the eyes and easy to distinguish. The novelty heart is the perfect shape to fill with chocolate, make into a pizza, or, if you visit the British retailer Marks & Spencer, a sausage. The chain released a tweet this week with an image of a heart-shaped sausage that’s been “lightly-truffled” (whatever that means) and wrapped in bacon. Because no heart-shaped sausage would be complete without ingredients that could literally stop your actual heart.
