P.C. Alert: Hot Cross Buns Banned

Political correctness has reached new heights (depths?) at a British hospital, which refused to allow traditional hot cross buns to be served to patients on Good Friday. According to employees, the catering department manager didn't want to offend non-Christian employees, and so instead decided to offend Christians, not to mention those who simply enjoy a nice treat.

Catering staff emailed a newspaper complaining of the ban.

A hospital spokeswoman, however, claimed the missing buns were simply an "oversight" and that they hadn't been ordered in time. The buns were served on Easter Monday.

Nigella Lawson's recipe for hot cross buns can be found here. The recipe is also featured in her book FEAST.

I thought you were going to say that they can't use "hot" and "buns" in the same recipe anymore. Really. I'm not joking. Of course, that would have nothing to do with political correctness.
