More PC Madness

(From Reuters via The Australian):

A BRITISH woman has been ordered by police to take down a sign on her garden gate that said, "Our dogs are fed on Jehovah's Witnesses".

Pensioner Janet Grove, who owns a jack russell terrier puppy called Rabbit, insisted the sign was a gentle joke to discourage callers.

Her late husband put the sign up more than 30 years ago when members of the church called at their house on Christmas Day. But police were forced to act after receiving a complaint.

"We were informed by a member of the public who found the sign to be distressing, offensive and inappropriate," a police spokesman said.

It's reassuring to know that's there's someone out there looking out for the little guy, huh? Although something in the back of my mind tells me that this person won't kick up the same fuss next time someone satirizes telemarketers. Telemarketers have feelings too, you know!
