Default About Buns, not Bun Laws......

I was in Moss Side a few months ago, and stopped the car outside Greggs the bakers.

A few unsavoury characters were outside.
and when I say unsavoury, I ain't talking about the pasties.

you know what I mean?

Why do the police allow chavs to hang outside the bakers when normal people just want to buy an apple fritter and cheese and onion pie in peace?

Is this one rhetorical question or two?

The boulangerie and the patisserie should always be separate. Otherwise you attract the unsavories...

The only bun law I am aware of is the fact that hotdog buns come in packs of 6 and hotdogs come in 8... what's that all about?

In this thread are we to roll with the punches? ....no bun intended.

A US-wide ban on buns might save even more lives than banning guns. From the obesity statistics, there's eclair cause for concern...

I bought some Hebrew National hot dogs the other day as I'd heard they were good...however, there were 7 in the pack; what's more, they were all like that, it wasn't a one off. I think a fundamental law of physics may have been contravened.

Just by a discrete obvious large bag for carrying them in. Be aware the might just be a casually dressed roll model for racial harmony
