Jolie posters glamorised guns

#1
Two posters for an Angelina Jolie film have been criticised by advertising watchdogs for making guns attractive.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled the Wanted posters were not suitable to be seen by children.

It added that the use of a glamorous actress, gun images and aspirational text "could glamorise violence".

Bah! Haven't these do-gooders got anything better to do? Personally, I think that Ms Joile should have been chastised for being "Offensively easy on the eye, whilst in flagrant violation of Rule 3!"

Are these peoples mongs? Angelina Jolies fit, guns are cool, guns and angelina jolie=quality! Films a bunch of nonsense though, saw it on download, like the Matrix without the 'Wow, I've not seen that before' factor, thouh you do get to see a mostly naked Angelina Jolie...

The human race has been "glamourising violence" since the very first Ugg gave a good shoeing to a member of the competing Ogg tribe and found he got some extra shagging rights back at the village.

To be honest I can see why some delicate flowers may worry about the odd movie poster, but I wonder if they wrote to their MP and screamed themselves hoarse about Iraq? There's movie posters ... and then there's your own country starting a bloodbath: where's the sense of proportion?

Ironic, maybe, that if there is one place where you are least likely to find people who "glamourise violence", it is right here on this website ...

..and why only this one, you would have a list of film posters going to the moon and back with guns on to complain about if you wanted to.

Anyway, guns are less cool than knives to the yoof of today is you believe the rags, all thanks to the effective UK gun control....errrrm
