    Removal of the pig

    I read this today in the paper and thinks its a load of ****

    BARMY shop bosses axed a tiny pig from a kids' toy farm set - in case it upset Muslim and Jewish parents.

    An angry mum complained to the Early Learning Centre when she found the pig missing and was told it had been removed for "religious reasons".
    The mother, named only as Caroline, found there was no porker with the cow, sheep, chicken, horse and dog in the store's HappyLand Goosefeather Farm.

    There was an empty sty in the farm set she bought for her daughter's first birthday - and a button that made an oinking noise when pressed.

    Pathetic, Stupid, Madness, Disgraceful, Down right crazy!

    I don't mean that in anyway towards the Muslim or Jewish communities but i thought they didn't eat pork? How does that translate into removing a plastic toy because it might offend.

    May as well remove the cows too, in case it upsets anyone who follows Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism.

    Also the chicken, sheep, and horse in case the vegans get upset.
    Get rid of the dog because all pets are slavery
    Get rid of the tractor to appease the Amish
    Get rid of the fences because I'm sure some claustrophobics might get stressed by it

    Empty box FTW

    ..but then the greens won't like the waste of packaging
