AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND: A butcher has taken a very bizarre route to make fun of Britain's new king after numerous media reports showed his swollen fingers. The 73-year-old became the monarch of the UK after the Queen’s death on September 8; and to celebrate his new role, Auckland’s Avon’s Butchery has started selling 'King Charles sausage fingers'.

The 1980-established butcher first shared Charles on its now-disappeared Instagram Story but without his fingers. Instead of fingers, there were sausages with a caption that read, “I'm going to hell,” the Daily Mail reported. The second post was of the product they are actually selling - “KING CHARLES SAUSAGE FINGERS”; over the photo, the text noted, “Limited stocks.”

However, years ago in 2012, His Majesty had apparently himself called his red and bloated fingers “sausage fingers” while in Australia. This is an issue he has been facing for years. Recently, a doctor named Dr Gareth Nye shared his views over his condition. The senior lecturer at the University of Chester speculated that numerous factors, like oedema or fluid retention and arthritis, could be the reasons behind the swollen fingers.

He explained, “Oedema is a condition where the body starts to retain fluids in the limbs, normally the legs and ankles but also in the fingers which causes them to swell. Oedema is a common condition and mostly affects people over the age of 65 as the ability for fluid control is restricted. To see if this is the cause, pressing the swollen area for about 15 seconds would cause a depression in the area.”

The doctor added, “Arthritis- another common condition in the over 60s. It often affects three main areas in the hand - the thumb joint or either joints in the fingers. Fingers usually become stiff, painful and swollen and although medication can help with the pain, the swelling can remain. Uncommon causes may include high salt diet leading to fluid retention, certain medications can rarely lead to swelling as a side effect such as with blood pressure medications or steroid medications,” before asserting, “There certainly aren't any immediate health concerns to be concluded from swollen fingers and is most likely a sign of his age.”

Meanwhile, Twitter is also filled with hilarious comments regarding the new ruler’s fingers with a user writing, “Sausage Fingers Charles is now King.” The second user tweeted: “Those King Charles fat fingers have been haunting me since I saw them. Anyone figure out what’s going on there?” The third user said, “King charles got those hot dog fingers from everything everywhere all at once.” “So are we just not going to talk about how ‘king’ charles has the hotdog fingers from everything everywhere all at once,” the fourth one noted.
