'Mr Sex': Asda can suck my cake

Bad news for any of us planning a birthday party for a paedophile; Asda have censored a cake with a photo of a 21 year-old when he was a baby because it deems a bare arse to be 'pornographic'. Seeing as this was the company who ran adverts consisting of housewives slapping their buttocks for years on end, they've got some fucking cheek, if you'll pardon the expression. It's bad enough that censorship in the UK is wielded by some crusty old judge who hasn't seen a fanny since decimalisation, but someone whose just been promoted up to Cake Manager determining what's obscene or not? Fuck that.

Sigh. I'll just have to go to Tesco next time I want a cake with a fisting image, I suppose.

It's terrible the way that everyone is so quick to jump on these tiny things "just in case" they're offensive or wrong to a very small minority of people. I've just been reading this:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/7475394.stm
The mother turns into a male deli chef (to signify how good Heinz makes food taste). The father then kisses his wife goodbye (still represented by the male deli chef) and 200 people complain that it's 'offensive' and 'inappropriate'.
Who are these 200 people? Why does it offend them?

And with the ASDA cake - that is ridiculous and it makes me want to boycott ASDA (and the world) until everyone stops running around like a headless chicken and sees a little bit of sense again.

Be a man - make your own fisting cake.

Bollocks, there goes my idea of a goatse birthday cake.

You could just buy a regular plain cake from Asda, and write "OMGZ FISTING" on it with writing icing.

Or Magic Marker, y'know - whatever's easier.

Is that a real cake tin?! If so please tell me where I can buy one-strikes me that that combines the two most essential housewifely duties!
