Heinz Buckles

This is the commercial that Heinz has removed from the airwaves, in the UK of all places. The UK! Not a redneck red state in the hate-filled south, but the United Kingdom.

Over two hundred complaints were filed, some calling the advert "inappropriate," "unsuitable" and "offensive." Wow. I thought the rest of the world outside of the US was a bit more advanced, especially the UK.

"It is our policy to listen to consumers. We recognise that some consumers raised concerns over the content of the ad and this prompted our decision to withdraw it," said Nigel Dickie, director of corporate affairs for Heinz UK.

So Heinz buckles like a belt. I don't think I'll be buying their products any more. How about you?

    What's wrong with that? I think it was very funny

    OMG, that was terrific! Ah, but we have to protect everyone from thoughts. Thinking for yourself isn't allowed!
