So there I was, about to eat my hot cross bun when suddenly it said to me "Thou shalt not eat Halaal crossed buns on Easter".
And I'm like. "Wut? A talking Bun?"
So, seeing I had an important representative of the christian faith in my hands, I asked the talkative little fellow what he believed in.
"I'm a Buneist."
"Yes", he replied."Buneism is the belief that you were created to be eaten with butter and jam (depending on which church you belong to)."
"Some Buneists prefer melted cheese and honey."
"Abuneists believe that we were not created but that we evolved from hot dog buns which weren't created either.They also believe we come from something called 'the big Bun'"."None of that matters to me, as long as I achieve my intended purpose, I am happy!"
"But Mr Bun," I asked it, "What's up with the Halaal sticker? Is your purpose then only to be eaten by Muslims with honey and cheese?"
"Nah", he laughed, "I was joking about that! I taste the same regardless of packaging.""You could stick two pentagrams, an anarchy sign and a Darwin sticker on me and it would not change my ingredients one bit!"
"Wow!" I said, "That's a good point!"
"Yes", he said. "A bun is just as sweet by any other name!".
I tossed the wrapper in the bin, said goodbye to my little friend and sliced it open for the cheese and honey topping ritual.
"Yes", I said through a mouthful of bun. "A bun is truly as sweet by any other name!"
