    Are there any TV ads that don't cause offense? I've never seen one.

    The guys across the pond are weird like that. In America, we prefer to offend first, ban later. hehe.

    We have had our fair share of adverts that offend, infact our standards over here are most likely more relaxed than the states.

    I was more refering to the fact that I didn't understand a darn thing he was trying to say. I couldn't figurare out enough of what was going on to get offended much less anything else.

    Basically the guy is telling churchill how good he did in world war, and then he says that he should not be downloading "salty" pictures of monty from alamange over that slow dialup.

    Hey, nothing the Brits put on TV is going to be near as offensive as Janet Jackson's deformed, saggy breast flopping out.

    Heave!
