Bakery Sorry For Replacing Baby Jesus With Sausage Roll
A UK bakery has apologised after swapping out baby Jesus for a sausage roll in a recent ad.
The photos showed a pretty typical nativity scene of three wise men gathering around the manger.
However, instead of the son of God they gaze upon, it’s a big ol’ sausage roll.
The picture was one of several used to promote a new advent calendar for the bakery, including a Santa with flakes of pastry in his beard, a Greggs outlet in a snow globe and a woman puckering up to kiss a pastry under the mistletoe.
Greggs said in a statement: “We’re really sorry to have caused any offence, this was never our intention.”
Loving the #Greggs scandal after they replaced baby Jesus with a sausage roll on their advent calendar. To be fair, a Greggs sausage roll does taste like it was entombed in a cave for 3 days and then resurrected. pic.twitter.com/159IQvNrgB— Killer Stuff (@KitschKiller) November 15, 2017
Away in a manger no crib for a bed, no little Lord Jesus a savoury snack instead 😂 #greggs— Geoff Hubbert (@geoffhubbert) November 15, 2017
God didn’t send sausage rolls to save us, bet if I’m really honest, they’ve had a bigger impact on me then Jesus... #Greggs— Bobby Hellard (@BobbyHellard) November 15, 2017
Worshipping Sausage Rolls instead of imaginary gods is a much better idea. #Greggs— ✐ (@MrLukeJohnston) November 15, 2017
How flimsy is your religious belief if it's rocked by a sausage roll? #Greggs— Hugh Jazz (@ThurstanStHouse) November 15, 2017
Just when you think the world hasn’t gone totally mad the place erupts with fury over this picture.— Jodie Nesbitt (@JodieNesbitt88) November 15, 2017
Let’s all chill out, untwist the knickers and have ourselves a Greggs. Jesus would have approved I’m sure.
Merry Christmas you miserable animals 🎅🏼🥟#Greggs #ItsJustALaugh pic.twitter.com/8LtkQWTllD
