I've just been reading about the furore  caused by Greggs new advert for Christmas and I have to ask the question, could a sausage roll offend quite so much? 

The answer - yes of course it could and Greggs and their advertising agency knew this all along.  How often does an unoffensive advert get space on the BBC News website? - Never, right? 

Personally it doesn't offend me at all and in fact I chuckled heartily and showed it around to a couple of people.  However, without the outrage caused I would never have seen it at all!   

And so here I am, adding to the press these guys are getting but also thinking it's a very smart bit of work on Greggs part.
