An innocent “thank you” turns into a social media controversy, but this is not a story from the United States!   It involves firefighters, a farmer, pigs, and sausage in Britian.   The firefighters posted the original “thank you” on their Facebook page, but it was later taken down with this message:   “In regard to a recent post on this page, we recognise that this has caused offence to some, we apologise for this and as such have removed the post”.

How did Bruno Mars get the name Bruno?   The answer in this story from the Associated Press:

PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Former pro wrestling champ Bruno Sammartino jokingly gave Bruno Mars a picture of himself in his prime to show he was muscular, not chunky. Mars met Sammartino for the first time during a tour stop in Pittsburgh. Mars, whose real name is Peter Gene Hernandez, says he was nicknamed Bruno by his dad, who thought he was a chunky baby and reminded him of his favorite
wrestler, Sammartino. Sammartino also gave Mars a replica of his championship belt from the World-Wide Wrestling Foundation. Sammartino, who is now 81, says he didn’t know much about Mars but he found him “the most humble, nicest guy.” By the way, Mars has said he chose the name Mars to add pizazz and because girls thought he was out of this world.
