Papal Visit: Milking It

Some ice cream manufacturer made this ad, together with the "banned" one featuring a pregnant nun, presumably hoping it too would be banned and they would get loads of free publicity from shitty websites run by gullible schmucks like Fagburn.
The Advertising Standards Association recieved just 10 complaints about the pregnant nun ad, which had been placed in two magazines, Grazia and The Lady.
"We concluded that to use such an image in a light hearted way to advertise ice-cream was likely to cause serious offence to readers, particularly those who practised the Roman Catholic faith."
This seems rather an odd decision, seeing as it's 2010 and people don't get prosecuted for blasphemy in Britain anymore, and we have to put up with all kinds of offensively homophobic adverts.
