Boris Johnson said he’s ‘made of Greggs’ then got the price of a sausage roll very, very wrong

Northerners are born knowing how much a Greggs sausage roll costs.

While our current Prime Minister has said a lot of outrageous things over the years, perhaps his recent boast that he’s ‘made of Greggs’ tops the lot.

Boris Johnson made the outrageous claim this week, telling the Eastern Daily Press how much he loved the bakery chain. He said: “Have I ever not had a Greggs?! I am made of Greggs!”

However, it turns out if you cut our PM he won’t actually bleed steak bake like he claims, after he massively fluffed the price of a Greggs sausage roll.

LBC

Boris appeared live on LBC radio yesterday, Friday November 29th, where he was interrogated about his supposed love of the baked goods purveyors.

When asked about the price of a Greggs sausage roll, he told LBC radio: “Oh god, err, I don’t know, umm, I give up.”

Host Nick Ferrari didn’t let him off the hook, replying: “You have no idea? You just told me you’re ‘made of Greggs’. You must eat their sausage rolls all the time.”

Greggs

Boris tried to shrug off the question, before answering: “I don’t know. £1.90. I have no idea”, while Ferrari put him out of his misery and told him the actual price.

Even in the PM’s local Greggs in Westminster a sausage roll will only set you back £1.20, while – as we all know – you can grab one in Manchester for a quid.

The Prime Minister went on to claim he was a true Greggs enthusiast, as he’d tried a vegan sausage roll, saying: “I’ve also eaten [long pause] vegan sausage rolls. Have you eaten a vegan sausage roll? They’re not bad.”

Cadbury has confirmed its chocolate should be kept in the cupboard not the fridge

This is just WRONG!

Cadbury has finally settled the debate of whether its chocolate should be kept in the fridge or the cupboard, and its bad news for people who keep it in the fridge…

Like many things (ketchup), I firmly believe that chocolate should be kept in the fridge, but many people believe it should be in the cupboard. 

Well, finally Cadbury has settled the debate – I still believe it’s wrong, though. 

Taking to Twitter, Cadbury Australia was asked the question directly and they responded with a perfectly reasonable excuse for keeping it in the cupboard.

According to the tweet: “Chocolate should always be stored in a slightly cool, dry, dark place such as cupboard or pantry at temperatures less than 21°C to ensure the quality isn’t compromised.”

The company responded to a Twitter user, Bruno, who created a definitive list of what belongs in the fridge or cupboard.

According to Bruno, chocolate along with soy sauce, eggs, avocado, tomatoes and Champagne (completely disagree with this one) should be kept in the cupboard. He also put oil in the fridge which I just can’t wrap my head around. 

Bruno does, however, think Ketchup should be in the fridge, so at least we can agree on that. 

How do you like your chocolate, ice-cold or a bit melted from the cupboard? Let us know in the Facebook comments.

Dogs separated at birth bump into each other on a walk and instantly start hugging

This is so cute!!

Two dogs who were separated as puppies bumped into each other on a walk and shared a hug.

If you are one of the many people who are blessed to have found a best friend in a dog, I am, like the rest of the dog-less population, incredibly jealous of you. 

It’s pretty normal behaviour for doggos to get excited when they see another furry little friend. Their inquisitive tails will start wagging wondering if this other pup will be a friend or a foe.

Well in this unusual and heartwarming case, the other dog was very much a friend.

Two cockapoos, Monty and Rosie, were born in the same litter last June and when they bumped into each other recently in the park, they hugged each other as if they had been reunited.

Rosie’s owner Susan Killip told the Dodo: “There were six of them, but Monty and Rosie were always together.” 

Susan added: “It was so lovely, they both just jumped up and hugged each other. It was amazing they remembered each other after 10 months of not seeing each other.”

But we’re not the only ones touched by the reunion. When twitter user Libby shared the reunion her dad messaged her about, the Tweet when viral with over 900,000 likes. 

Susan said the owners are planning on keeping in touch, although it’s ‘a bit difficult at the moment,’ they plan on having ‘doggy walkies together’ when this is all over.

Experts have debated whether it is even possible for dogs to recognise each other like this. Although dogs of the same breed often gravitate towards each other, Tufts University says ‘we’ll probably never know for sure’ if dogs can process a familial connection like this.

It sure does look like they can with that beautiful hug!

Images have surfaced of a KFC car park covered in litter from the takeaway chain, sparking outrage on social media. 

A KFC in Bury has reopened following the new guidelines, but it’s caused disgust online when the retail park it is located in was left covered in empty KFC boxes.

This comes just days after KFC reopened its chains across the country. The photos were taken by a key worker who expressed his disappointment and ‘disgust’ at the public for leaving the car park in such a state.  

Hundreds of people have responded to his tweet expressing their concerns and similar disgust.

One used wrote ‘should forcibly close them down again’, while another said ‘there is no excuse for dropping litter anywhere, but this is disgusting behaviour’. 

The fast-food giant reopened their stores on March 23rd, with many people rejoicing in the fact they could now get their hands on some fried chicken. 

It appears it is not the only KFC with a litter problem, with one Twitter user explaining that the ‘one near us in Rochdale was the same’.
