Nanny Bans Novelty Pigs

Nanny Bans Novelty PigsNanny is always concerned about ensuring that people are not unnecessarily offended by the actions of others; not that she is very concerned about offending us herself, she is after all perfect!

Anyhoo, it has come to her attention that novelty pig calendars and toys are being displayed in Dudley council offices

This of course, to the untrained eye, represents no problem at all.

However, Nanny has a very special training and looks for offence where there is none.

As such, her lackeys in Dudley Council have banned the display these items, lest they offend Muslim staff.

Workers in the council's benefits department have been told to remove, or cover up, all pig products including; toys, porcelain, calendars and even a tissue box featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.

This sudden attack on the world of pork by Nanny, comes after a Muslim worker said that they were offended by pig-shaped stress relievers delivered to the authority.

I am sure that tolerant countries such as Iran, are equally sensitive to the feelings of non Muslims.

The thing is, these pig items have been in Dudley council for years. Needless to say the banning has caused something of an atmosphere.

No doubt the ban has aided and improved inter religious understanding!

The council were asked what was the specific reason, given by the person, for asking for the removal of these item. The council replied:

"It did not matter why it was considered offensive".

There you go folks, you now have carte blanche to complain about anything you like; no reason is required.

Nanny will ban whatever you want.

Go ahead, let yourselves rip!

    Presumably you could complain that the person making the original complaint was offensive and they would be removed?

    You could say that Winnie the Pooh,Piglet etall are part of your literary heritage (or at least they were before they were Disneyfied) and banning them is offensive to you and your culture

  4. The Official who issued the order to remove the pigs has obviously not got enough work to fill his/her time and could therefore be dispensed with. The complainants should be told forceibly that they are now in England where we like pigs and if they don't like it they can go back whence they came. The Council Tax payers should be demanding to know why the Officials which they pay for are wasting time on this.
    Sorry I have just woken up. I must ahve been dreaming
