Pig in a Blanket

England’s largest bakery chain, Greggs, unveiled its first-ever Advent calendar. But there’s something porky about it. It’s a nativity scene featuring the three wise men kneeling around a manger with an ersatz baby Jesus. In his place, Greggs has put a “pig in a blanket.”

This has upset 'Christians,' who say Greggs is a “sick” place full of “cowards” for portraying the Son of God as a non-kosher pastry.

The U.K. Evangelical Alliance claims the whole thing is a gimmick “to sell baked goods.”

But Greggs at least regrets trying to be funny about baby Jesus. “We’re really sorry to have caused any offense, this was never our intention,” the company said in a statement.

But Greggs can at least take credit for inspiring some clever Twitter jokes:

Greggs recently opened 20 new shops, including 11 franchised units in transport locations but closed 28 existing shops, giving a total of 1,663 shops.
