Feck off you kent


While we’re on the subject of “big ignorant feckers” (see below), apparently a poster on the London underground advertising Magners cider which contains the Father Tedesque phrase “Feck off bees” has been cleared by the Advertising Standards Authority. Although someone complained that the ad could be seen by young children the word “feck” was ruled not to be offensive. Maybe the same people who complained about this ad should also complain about the English regional tourist board ads urging people to visit Kent (or if you’re a lttle further north Scunthorpe) or TV coverage of Arsenal matches. Or even the human rights organisations who advocate Freedom For China.
