Well that made me cry with laughter!

GREGGS has apologised to anyone offended by publicity for its first Advent calendar which shows a sausage roll in a manger instead of the baby Jesus.

The North-East based company is enabling fans of its sweet and savoury treats to enjoy something different each day as they countdown to Christmas 2017.

Each door reveals a tear-off token that can be taken into Greggs’ shops and exchanged for items from the Christmas and wider menu, including the Festive Bake, flavoured lattes, sweet mince pie and a sausage roll.

I think Joseph should take Mary on Jeremy Kyle, She's obviously been …I think Joseph should take Mary on Jeremy Kyle, She's obviously been sleeping around.


Maybe Greggs are trying to say that Mary was telling porkies ..
Well, that's replaced pigs in blankets for my Christmas dinner...

Which is more fictitious?
The story of Jesus or the meat content of the sausage, quoted by Greggs?

That’s what they had to apologise for?

Sausage rolls are the kid with a woolly jumper on and socks sewn either side of a bobble hat at best.

so rank their sausage rolls dont know how any one could eat one
I don't think any apology is needed. That is a brilliant advertising campaign. The sausage roll will be performing miracles just like jesus

I've found more salvation in Greggs than any other religion could offer.

Most certainly should have wrapped it, just not in pastry ;).
They need all the divine help they can get as their sausage rolls are horrible
I can't help but look at size, and that sausage is a mighty big sausage as it is bigger than the wise men themselves
But Jesus backwards is Susej, well done on Gregg's.

They have also offended Jewish people because Jesus was Jewish, but Gregg's sausage rolls do not contain Kosher meat...
