People should stop using the phrase 'Think Tank', according to Chavs.

At a recent Chav meeting, where representatives of Chavs from across the UK came together in a car park behind a Kwik Save in Kidderminster to discuss pertinent issues to their kind, it was found that the phrase could potentially be linked to the use of brains for thinking.

This idea of thinking, and potentially collecting these thoughts and keeping them in a tank, was found to be offensive to Chavs (and their peers the Scallies, Townies, the Le Coq Sportif Peoples' Front, and the Peoples' Front of Le Coq Sportif).

While the majority of the delegates agreed that the word tank could be used in a positive manner - in reference to both war and the popular Chav pastime of 'getting tanked up' - it was decided that the negatives far outweighed the positives, and that the public should be made aware of this.

James 'Jimbo Jonesy' Jones, editor of a popular Myspace blog, says in a post due to be published this Friday that the phrase is "promoting the wrong message", and compared it to other controversial phrases such as "get a job" and "sub-human scum".

It is anticipated that this controversy will die down within a matter of days, due to leaked Government proposals to link road tax not only to emissions but also to the size of exhaust pipes on older vehicles.
