A local man who decided to chow-down on a steak and kidney pie for his lunch last Friday, got a nasty shock when he was struck on the head by a passing Catholic because eating meat on a Friday is a mortal sin.
The man, who had bought the pasty from a local Fredds bakery, was said to be totally shocked and appalled by the intolerant attitude shown by this "old biddy" who had "totally scuppered" his peaceful lunch break.
The man explained: "I wouldn't have minded so much, but the pie was hot and I had it near my mouth at the time, then whack. Hot pie in my face. Thank you very much!"
Visibly seething, the man continued, saying: "She says I should be eating fish. Well, I'm sorry, but Fredds don't sell fish pies."
The man plans to take legal action against the "sad bint" for infringement of the Religious Discrimination Act which was brought in to protect atheists from staunch religious hypocritical busybodies.
