Hot Cross Buns Banned

A hospital in England abandoned an Easter weekend tradition of serving patients and staff hot cross buns this year. Why are the buns banned? The cross of course.

"...Hospital staff claim they were banned from handing out hot cross buns this Easter in case they upset non-Christians.

The decision disappointed patients at Poole Hospital in Dorset and angered catering staff.

In an email to their local paper, sent on Good Friday, catering staff said: 'We the kitchen staff of Poole Hospital were disgusted to find that the patients were not getting hot cross buns this morning.

"The manager of the catering department said he was worried about the ethnic minorities that work here." (source)
