"Take It Away" - Paul McCartney, 1982
On the radio while on the way into Oxford this morning, we heard an interview with the Dean of St Albans Cathedral about the origins of the tasty Hot Cross Bun...and its original connection to the Easter season.
If you read the Daily Telegraph article I linked in the above sentence, you'll see that the Very Reverend wonders if sales of the modern version of the bun with the cross on top should be limited to only the Easter period. That, he ponders, might make us think more about the originals of the design on top of the bun.
Given the non-separation of church and state here in Britain - and of course I mean the Church of England - plus the government's propensity to legislate all sorts of silly things, I'm sure we'll soon discover that Tesco, Sainsbury's, etc. won't be allowed to sell them all year round anymore. What a shame, too.
