Courage of convictions?

#1
What a poxy country we are becoming - and this has nothing to do with Neu Arbeit, though I could probably spin it to make them responsible :wink: . This story in the Mail today;

A beer advert which showed a nervous man watching a woman model a figure-hugging dress with the slogan 'Take Courage my friend' has been banned. Three people complained to the Advertising Standards Authority that the poster implied the beer gave the man confidence to either make negative comments about the woman's appearance or to take advantage of her. The man was shown with a can of Courage beer looking worried as the woman modelled a dress with sales tags still attached.
THREE PEOPLE out of the whole grown population of Britain now influences the Advertising Standards Authority :x . What sheer, utter f***ing, madness! Would someone else care to comment on what's wrong with this:



Isn't it a well known fact that alcohol lessens the inhibitions thereby making it more likely he would have the courage (play on words) to give the truthful answer to the perenial question; "Does my bum look big in this?" I could better understand it if they had banned it on the grounds, that it implied the serious dishing out of violence that his courageous answer would likely bring :twisted:

And, No I don't work for Courage - though a few free pints wouldn't go amiss for this support :? :D

That has got to be one of the most wank sig blocks ever. For god's sake don't post repeatedly on the same thread - the tedium would be unbearable.

Apparently three members of the public complained that the advertisement was blah blah blah dribble. The offence to three members of a masturbatory circle in a countrywide population of 65 million apparently makes that particular advertisement unacceptable.

I do despair. Where's my SLR?
