Does That Make Them Antistate?

From BBC NEWS | Health: Anger over cancer ad censorship

"Campaigners are criticising a radio watchdog's decision to only allow a prostate cancer ad starring comedy star Ricky Gervais to be aired after 9pm.

The Prostate Cancer Charity ad features a doctor inserting a finger inside a man's rectum to check for cancer.

The Radio Advertising Clearance Centre, which governs commercial radio, has also ordered the removal of a "squish" noise from the advert."


Cancer activists are furious at the decision, criticising the radio watchdog for being too strict. Said a spokesperson: "I don't know why they can't just pull out they stick they have up their ass, and... oh."

You can listen to the ad if you follow the link to the BBC story.
