Fish and loaves-ing in, er, Durham’s Millennium Place

Thank you to Michael Laverick for this story which proves adults will go to great lengths to find excuses to eat food aimed at children.

Sunderland Echo, 24 May 2010 (story):

The miracle of the fish-finger sandwiches

Hungry shoppers were treated to fish-finger sandwiches in an unusual recreation of Jesus’ feeding of the five thousand.

The 21st-century take on the Biblical loaves and fishes miracle took place to promote Durham Mysteries, a series of plays starting this week.

Five hundred fish-finger sandwiches were handed out to passers-by in Durham’s Millennium Place by Jesus lookalike Edward Davies.

Next week they’ll be turning water into Schloer, no doubt.

If only Jesus himself had been fortunate enough to have access to sliced white bread and a fan oven. No miracle required, and the five thousand would have gone home with the spring in the step that comes with having breadcrumbs in one’s stomach.

And there’s no way that girl’s fitting all of that in her mouth.
