Tower of London, UK (FTB newswire) Visitors to the Tower of London are sure to be disappointed at the absence of the waterboarding display. The favorite attraction was axed after a protest from the U.S.

Water boarding was known to be a favorite form of torture by King Henry VIII. Historical rumor has it that Anne Boylen spent some time on "Ye Olde Board" before she was beheaded in 1536.

"The Grockle's are sure to be cheesed off," said Yeoman Warder, Chauncey Gardener. "It's been a bit of a hugger mugger around here. I'm sick as a parrot over the whole thing.

The water board was housed in the lower level of the Bloody Tower. Set between "The Rack" and the gruesome "Scavenger's Daughter" it was a much loved stop for kids touring the awesome fortress.

British tabloids are having a field day with the controversy. One glaring headline: UK to Yanks: Our Tower is not your Aunt Sally!
