Judicial hypocrisy over meat ads

The Herald reports that the Meat Board cannot show a certain TV ad. The ad depicts butchers celebrating meat, by chanting like Hare-Krishna devotees. The powers that be deem a humorous ad ‘unacceptable’, while grotesque displays such as excrement, the prophylactic Virgin, children’s genitalia, ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ etc etc are permitted in the name of ‘Art’. Sigh.
