Where's The Beef?

Today in Christchurch, New Zealand, a billboard was removed after a handful of citizens complained that the ad contained obvious sexual overtones. The words "thank God for serious steak" next to a picture of a cucumber with a tomato at either side of its base was ruled offensive and forced to be taken down by the Advertising Standards Authority.
Pretty soon cucumbers will need a support group too. After all, they can't help that they look like gi-normous green dicks.

This is clearly prejudicial against men with green cocks and red balls...and I think Santa Claus may be one. They need to file a class-action suit.

I'm glad to hear we aren't the only puritannical country with dirty minds.

LOL - it didn't make the TV news down here in NZ, or if it did, I missed it.
