Idiot religious people complain about Pret's crisps

4 February 2013

Christianity is so feeble and fragile that it can't cope with anything. So weak is the Christian spirit that Pret A Manger's 'Virgin Mary' crisps caused them to actually make a complaint.

As such, the crisps have been withdrawn from sale.

Now, of course, there'll be people out there who will say 'there'd be uproar if they were called Mohammed crisps!' or some such, but they're idiots as well. That's because we're talking about crisps. Crisps called 'Virgin Mary'. They're not called 'Buddha Jizz' or 'Ramadanadingdong' or anything.

Either way, weedy Pret have decided that these spicy tomato crisps (hence the name - it is a play on a Bloody Mary cocktail) should be taken off the shelves because they don't won't to make Jesus's followers cry all the holy water out of their faces.

A company spokesperson said: "It didn't take many complaints. It's the strength of feeling that's behind them that's important. For the sake of a particular flavour of crisps, we don't want anyone offended."

Pret put out a statement too, saying: "Clive [Schlee, Pret's CEO] has taken your advice and decided to remove all of the crisps from our shops," the complaint response said. "We will be donating the unsold crisps to homeless charities that we support across the country. We do listen and we have tried to react quickly."

Jesus wept.

    They should re-brand them as "Jesus Chrisps". And put a picture of a big cock and balls on the front of them.

    That's a lot of hate for "religious" people up there ^. "Christianity is so feeble and fragile that it can’t cope with anything" Actually Christians don't make as much fuss as many other minority groups and take a lot of intolerance and insults with regards to their faith without complaint.

    Religion was created to control the masses and god does probably not exist.

    Bless! You gotta love these non-bible bashing atheists. Atheists first commandment? Thou shalt not worship religion. Atheists second commandment? Thou shalt be free of all religious commandments and be free to, er , listen to me telling you what to do.
