I'm more annoyed than I can tell you that 200 people complained about a Heinz Deli Mayo ad which featured a quick kiss between two men, and even more annoyed that because of the complaints, Heinz has withdrawn the ad. Dear God, what's wrong with us? In the name of humanity, the ad is funny, and the kiss is part of the joke. The ad can't be shown around kids' programming anyway because the product is so high in fat, salt and sugar it would be in breach of broadcasting guidelines, so what's the problem? And even if the ad wasn't funny and the kiss wasn't a joke, so what?

Bogna had a Volvo for a while, and she was always complaining the damn thing was too heavy and so on. Then it turned up its toes and died and now she has a Hyundai..thing, I don't know, it's silver and has tyres and seats and stuff and probably an engine and somewhere to keep the petrol. Now she complains because it's not as good as the Volvo.
