Why do people eat such disgusting for at Christmas?

Turkey. The cheapest meat you can buy. Dry as a piece of sandpaper, little flavour, cheap meat alternative to chicken. Apart from Christmas it's only ever eaten when people either can't afford...

Exactly. It's the usually the "money for old rope" numpties in government that are being paid to be offended on everyone else's behalf that like to spout this rubbish. It so annoys me.

I've never understood people who find something funny just because someone has stuck an expletive in there. What's funny about a card that says Merry F*****g Christmas. It's neither funny nor clever.

I wasn't wrong because I asked the question. I wasn't sure. That's why I started the thread. I never said it was illegal. I just presumed that it might be. However just because it isn't illegal...

I have no intentions of wanting to work in a ladies fitting room (even though I'd probably be quite good at advising women on clothes) and not even looking for a job. Just that it would be nice if...

I've been criticised for of a lot of things on here but never racism. How do you work out that it's Asian bashing just because it happened to be an Asian shop? If it was a shop run by white people...
