WHAT, THEY CAN'T FLY?:

Labour pigs poster divides Jews (Steven Morris, January 29, 2005, The Guardian)

The Labour party refused to back down yesterday over a proposed campaign poster in which the heads of Michael Howard and Oliver Letwin are grafted on to the bodies of flying pigs.

Some Jewish academics called for the poster to be shelved, claiming it could be interpreted as anti-Semitic as the Tory leader and shadow chancellor are Jewish.

Maybe Roger Waters should sue, too.

Twould have been a far, far better ad (not to mention more sensitive---perhaps even more accurate) that would have shown them grafted to sheep just about to hit a large rotating fan.
