E Bay has banned the sale of a board game based on the popular British comedy 'Dad's Army'. The reason given was 'inciting racial hatred' because the box features several swastikas.
A 12 year old boy was asked to comment. "I think E bay is totally nuts. Everybody knows that 'Dad's Army' is set during the Second World War. Swastikas were part of the war. How can that be inciting racial hatred?"
E Bay spokesman Terry Pillock said "Swastikas are associated with racial supremacy and other nasty things. We are taking a stand for the oppressed minorities in the world."
Meanwhile, Barry Fiddler has complained that his 'Snakes and Ladders' board game was not put on auction because "snakes live in the jungle and the jungle is in Africa so it's racist". Buckaroo has been banned by the site because it is cruel to animals, Monopoly encourages debt and Cludo may lead to "grusome murders and the wrongful arrest of people who are named after a variety of fruit."
