Toy Pigs Banned In Office Over Fear Of Upsetting...

Jews? Hindus? Christians? Maybe it was those Buddhists? No no, as usual, it was a representative from the religion of peace and tolerance (well, obviously not tolerance of small toys)

NOVELTY pig calendars and toys have been banned from a council office — in case they offend Muslim staff.

Workers in the benefits department at Dudley Council, West Midlands, were told to remove or cover up all pig-related items, including toys, porcelain figures, calendars and even a tissue box featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.

Bosses acted after a Muslim complained about pig-shaped stress relievers delivered to the council in the run-up to the Islamic festival of Ramadan.
