Sausage roll ’crime’ traumatises internet
There are certain things that should be considered sacred and eating a pie or sausage roll the right way has got to be one of them.
But while it might be assumed common knowledge that a sausage roll can only be eaten end first, an absolute travesty has occurred in the UK.
In response to a tweet asking for examples of something that "feels illegal, but isn't" pie and sausage roll chain Gregg's tweeted this photo (and fair warning, it's pretty traumatising):
Gregg's did not provide any information about the image's origins - I'm assuming out of fears for the safety of the person who took that outrageous bite.
But it didn't stop people from (rightly so) going to absolute town on the scandal:

It's not the first time a sausage has unwittingly found itself at the centre of a media storm.
Back in 2016, photos of Labor leader Bill Shorten's sausage-sizzle eating skills horrified onlookers at a voting station during the election.
Mr Shorten hit a snag when he decided to bite into the middle of the sausage and bread roll rather than the end.
The MP was forced to turn away from the cameras - who had gleefully captured his sausage faux pas - to finish the sandwich, but not before the images were shared online where they have forever gathered infamy.
Similarly, then-UK Prime Minister David Cameron nearly caused a political incident during the 2015 British election campaign over the unusual way he ate a sausage sandwich.
Instead of biting from the middle, Mr Cameron was accused of being too posh after using a knife and fork to eat his snag.
