toy pig pulled from farm set on religious grounds

I saw an article in The Independent. A retailer withdrew a toy pig from a children's farm set to avoid the risk of causing offence on religious grounds. That sort of thing can make your day.

Just imagine if photos of people standing up were banned, to avoid offending religions where they stand on their heads.

  2. Albert? A farmyard pig is a strange toy really. They don't live on farms anyway. They live in cages in big warehouses and get tortured all their lives before being eaten up by those bound for hell. So I can see why the boy took it out of his farmyard set. Hotboy p.s. Which religion doesn't allow pigs to exist. Even I don't mind them being alive.

  3. I say!

    They keep a pig or two up at the seminary behind the plateau. Taste lovely, so they do.

  4. Hotters and Mingers. For the cellmate's Xmas, I'm buying a pig for a Malawian village. The cellmate gets the Oxfam certificate in her stocking.
