Nanny Bans Cocks

Nanny Bans CocksIs it me, or has Nanny surpassed herself this time?

Inverclyde Council, worried about the corrupting effect on children, have banned the use of the word cock.

Don't believe me?

Check out their site listing for entertainment, scroll down a bit and you will see "bleeptails".

Instead of worrying about the damaging effects of cocks, Inverclyde might care to apply their minds to another issue.

They have been blasted by the Accounts Commission as being the "worst in Scotland".

Well done lads!

  4. Does this mean that the French are banned in Inverclyde too? After all, their national animal is, rather fittingly I think, a Cock.

    This looks like some form of automatic filtering. No doubt they have provided a link for the establishments to add their own entries and this is to prevent abuse. Very wise if you view unmoderated forums and see how many adverts there are for products correcting erectile dysfunctions.
