First, they dumped the Friendlies (HERE) because some professor thought someone might read it as “friend lies”. Then, the government gave serious thought to extinguishing the dragon (HERE) as a national symbol because it looked too fierce. NOW, they want to bans pig from Year of the Pig TV advertisements!!! The move, apparently, was made by a party propaganda official Li Changchun who is probably related to the moron who trashed the friendlies. The move is meant to avoid offending Chinaâ€™s 21 million member Muslim population. Seems odd doesn’t it? Jail ‘em, register and appoint their clergy for them, but don’t tease them with p-o-r-k forbidden to them by Islamic law. So, how are the Buddhists, who think that the animals were chosen after Buddha himself summoned them all to a meeting in which he would designate the first 12 animals as rep’s, going to feel? This has big implications: You are going to have to muzzle the dog as the government has now outlawed eating dog to improve China’s culinary image prior to the Olympics; and of course the donkey will have to go to keep from offending politicos from the States; the chicken will remain roosted to deflect criticism for the prostitution trade here as women “sex care providers” are called Chickens and the men are called Duck; the snake will get caged for reminding Christians of original sin and the Ox will head for a Hindi barn…. Maybe they could use fruit (don’t EVEN go there…) or vegetables…. Thanks to the Humanaught for this one….
