Turkish TV Denies Piglet Ban.
He's the other white meat and that makes him not kosher for Islamic TV...so to speak.
"Turkey's public broadcaster has denied reports that it has banned the popular Walt Disney cartoon "Winnie the Pooh" because one of the main characters in the show is a piglet...In a statement carried by the Anatolia news agency, TRT said it had acquired the exclusive right to broadcast Walt Disney's cartoons and movies in Turkey but added, "the Walt Disney materials have not been acquired yet... (and) therefore the cartoon 'Winnie the Pooh' does not exist in TRT records and archives". Islam regards pigs as unclean and prohibits the consumption of pork."
And I thought the reason I couldn't find a copy of Animal Farm in Istanbul was that the godless Communist agenda of the pigs in the ruling class offended Allah.
Well. Now I know.
And that's one to grow on.
