LOL! Hi Freespirit!

I don't think it's offensive. But I do think that those people who do have given the campaign a boost by complaining about it! Everybody knows about this advertisement now, whereas it would've just faded into obscurity otherwise. Mmm, makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Actually, I saw a news item about it here - apparently our board of censors wouldn't allow it - why is beyond me! It seems like a perfectly good ad to me <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

(of course we weren't allowed to hear the actual phrase! - that was bleeped out!) haha!

Actually, seeing that a couple of people are from Melbourne - I don't suppose anyone knows a really good recipe for dim sims, do they? I love them, and I've looked all over the internet for reasonable recipes, but they tend to be more Chinesey than Greek, and a bit more like large wontons <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> (sorry for hijacking the post- I just felt hungry!)

best wishes - Jane <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

No I dontr have any recipees for dim sims mate but here in Melbourne we have The famous south melbourne market dim sims.They are so yummy!!!

I could not figure out myself why they would not allow it there when in some shows in the uk they drop the f word quite often.Oh well it did the add a favour by banning it anyway.

Now I'm very, very jealous!!! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I wish we had them here!

As for that ad - I feel vaguely insulted by the censorship board 'nannying' us like that - I imagine there would be a few picky people who might just mind the language, but compared to what we get on television, often before the 9 o'clock watershed, it's nothing! It just makes us look silly (or even sillier than we often already look <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> )

Hello back! Whereabouts in Melbourne are you? I'm in Blackburn in the eastern suburbs.

The games were great. We had some bad (or good?) timing with our holiday and were in NSW for most of the games, but got back in time to go to the athletics finals at the G with 83000 other people! So we missed out on the traffic but got to see the games. Oh, except for trying to get home on the train at midnight...

That's what annoys me about censorship. Don't they know we can think for ourselves. If they're worried about what some of the population will think then only schedule the ad for late night TV. What's so difficult about that?
