Hot on the heels of the withdrawal of Rebel the puppy in advertisements by the Tayside Police because they were offensive to Muslims, other organisations are getting in on the act to demonstrate their political correctness and stupidity.

First off was the Vegetarian Society who want the picture of the cow banned from Milka chocolate adverts, because it is offensive for vegetarians to have to see a cow on a chocolate bar wrapper. Their reaction to a picture of Ruth Kelly on the front of the new Highway Code book is eagerly awaited.

The Conservatives, meanwhile, have requested that the Labour Party remove pictures of Labour politicians from newspapers, magazines and election material because they feel these type of pictures are offensive to Conservatives.

Labour, meanwhile, have asked maternity suites in hospitals to stop referring to their patients as "going into labour", because the party finds it offensive that pregnant women should make promises they are plainly not going to keep by giving birth instead.

And the Chief Executive of British Airways, Willy Woody Couldhe Walsh has requested that airports remove advertisements for RyanAir from their concourses because their hidden costs are offensive to holidaymakers.

Meanwhile, in the world of showbusiness, the public have requested that showbusiness removes any references to Chubby Brown and model Naomi Campbell because they are both so extremely offensive.

Chavs have rounded up on the Oxford English Dictionary to ban the word "tasteful" as being offensive to their way of life.

And finally, Sylvester the Cat has suggested that the financial world should abandon Canary Wharf as being offensive to Tweetie, even if the bird did "taut he taw a puddy tat".

Spokesman for the "Pre-Political Correctness Censoring Everything Without Even Having Watched It Society", Mary Whitehouse, was unavailable for comment due to her deadness. She probably would have condemned it anyway, and then had a go at the Director General of the BBC.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
