Take Courage

Nanny hates booze, which is kind of ironic as most of her minions in parliament are professional boozers/substance abusers who make the most of the subsidised late bars in Westminster.

Anyhoo, Nanny got a bee in her bonnet recently about an advert for Courage beer which allegedly implied that drinking Courage would give the drinker "courage".

The advert showed a nervous guy holding a can of Courage, as he views the backside of a stout lady in a tight new dress, the tagline being:

"Take Courage My Friend."

Nanny's chums in the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) received "several" complaints (doubtless from people with no lives whatsoever) about the advert, and promptly banned it. Seemingly the advert would "imply the beer would give the man the confidence" to criticise his wife's dress.

Earth to ASA...that's exactly the point of booze!

How many marriages, loss of virginities and pregnancies have been caused by an affluence of alcohol?

To deny the reality is akin to an ostrich putting its head in the sand!

That being said, Courage is the brand name of this product; is Nanny going to ban that then as well?

    I just wonder if there's any milage in having a campaign to get as many people as possible to complain about absolutely every advert on some spurious ground or other and see if we can get the whole system to break down.

    After all if they take one complaint from some no-mark seriously, what would they do about thousands?

    Maybe their heads would explode!
