Food Wars

Bewildered by the Food boycotts, unboycotts and counter-boycotts. Here’s Bella’s nifty guide.

The now traditional controversy goes way back to 2015, when Starbucks caused a backlash because their traditional ‘holiday cup’ went from red to green causing one angered slurper to tweet:

“whatever! I am never giving y’all any of my hard earned money ever again. Y’all are Killary supporters and against America.”

First up this year Gregg’s have been forced to apologise for their nativity display in which The Baby Jesus was replaced by a pork-filled pastry product.

SKYNews explained: “But the image has been deemed tasteless rather than tasty by pressure group the Freedom Association, with chief executive Simon Richards describing the image as “sick” and those behind it as “cowards”.

He tweeted: “Please boycott @GreggsOfficial to protest against its sick anti-Christian Advent Calendar.”

A Greggs spokesperson said: “We’re really sorry to have caused any offence, this was never our intention.”

Yeah go tell it to the hell-fire pastry-boy.

Meanwhile Pooka aka @rubberbaddoll has been leading from the front against the most un-christian attack on Christmas yet, the vile replacement of Christmas Pies with the heathen “Mince Pies” nomenclature which has been blighting supermarkets up and down the land.

At the same time across the pond US Conservatives are posting videos of themselves smashing their Keurig coffee makers to smithereens amid the Sean Hannity controversy.

Keurig pulled its advertising from Sean Hannity’s Fox News show after his interview with Roy Moore, the embattled Senate candidate in Alabama at the centre of allegations of sexual assault.

As one heathen wag suggested “those definitely aren’t the ‘fiscally conservative’ Republicans”.

The campaign urged people under the hashtag  

One (spoof) Fox News twitter account, Turdpiss explained:


But we can compete on the stupidity front. A storm of protest erupted in Britain against Tesco for their Christmas advert which appeared to show Muslim people in it:


This prompted:


Meanwhile in Breaking News, a new front has opened up with revelations that Greggs’s have replaced the traditional Christmas Bake with the blatantly anti-Christian ‘Festive Bake’. 

I’m not sure how the Tunnock’s Boycott is progressing. Will update shortly. Stay vigilant sheeple!
