Turkish children will now be safe from the horrors of Pooh. The cartoon adaptation of A.A. Milne's classic "Winnie the Pooh" will not be seen in at least one nation. According to a Reuters article, the Islamist-rooted government of Turkey, which controls the nation's public television station TRT, has banned showings of the Disney cartoon from public airing...all because of Piglet!
Since pigs are considered unclean animals, and unfit for food, by Muslims, the presentation of even an animated version of the creature was considered a violation by the Turkish officials. Initially the station had considered editing the show, and snipping out the footage of piglet, but they soon realized how central a character he is as one of Pooh's closest friends, and how often his image appears in the reel. Wait until these nutjobs find out about Porky. Th-th-th-th-that's all, folks!
