offensive pigs

“A story based on the Three Little Pigs fairy tale has been turned down by a government agency’s awards panel as the subject matter could offend Muslims. The digital book, re-telling the classic story, was rejected by judges who warned that ‘the use of pigs raises cultural issues’.”

cf. BBC online news

This, to my mind, is political correctness taken too far and smacks of censorship.
