We're going to need more sausages.

That's what Daimler's chairman was forced to tell shareholders at the car maker's annual general meeting after a fight broke out between two investors over the sausage selection at lunch.

Police had to be called to the buffet bratwurst bust-up "after one man began packing away multiple sausages from the buffet" Bloomberg reports. "A woman intervened, and the two got into a verbal altercation".

With 12,500 bangers and 5,000 shareholders in attendance, the two sausages per person were apparently just not enough.

“Either we need more sausages, or we’ll have to get rid of the sausages entirely,” said chairman Manfred Bischoff, issuing a sausage ultimatum after the (hot dog) bunfight.
