I Just Don't Dig On Swine, That's All


News from Great Britain:

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".

I haven't read this version of The Three Little Pigs, but if it bears any resemblance to the story we all know then Muslims should love it. The villain attempts to adopt a haraam diet; he is foiled by structural integrity. Surely the Prophet (PBUH) would approve.

Granted, that's not the only problem the government had with the story:

The judges also attacked Three Little Cowboy Builders for offending builders.

But not, apparently, for offending cowboys. It's the last acceptable prejudice.
