The internet dishes mixed reactions to a bakery replacing baby Jesus with a sausage roll
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, a little sausage roll laid down its sweet… whatever sausage rolls have instead of heads.
UK bakery chain and national symbol of pride Greggs came under fire recently after they used an image of the baby Jesus replaced with a sausage roll to promote their new advent calendar.
The image caused a certain amount of outrage, and Greggs put out a public apology.
But many Brits don’t seem at all perturbed by the pastry blasphemy. In fact, they enjoy it.
Don’t see any problem with what Greggs have done, seeing as Jesus backwards is sausage

being Northern I have praised a Greggs sausage roll, more than I have ever praised Jesus

Nobody really minds about the baby Jesus being replaced with a sausage roll, but for now we’re all going to pretend to have strong opinions so that we can say the words ‘Greggs replaced the baby Jesus with a sausage roll’ over and over and over again. #sausagejesus
