Porking Violation

|

Leroy Trought says that when he put a sign in his pub's parking lot designating it a "porking lot", he was just paying homage to the fact that the neighborhood was once home to numerous butcher shops. But a court in Bristol, England, says it was, in fact, an anti-social act and has ordered him to remove the sign and told him he can't display any other signs that may be threatening, insulting or abusive. Threatening? Insulting? Abusive? Apparently, that's what Muslims who worship at a nearby mosque felt the "porking lot" sign was. Following complaints from them and others, the city council and police force filed charges against Trought.
