No pigs thanks, we're Chinese

I'm all for being tolerant and everything, but sometimes it can go too far...and who would have thought that it would be China's turn to catch political correctness disease? CCTV has banned pigs from being shown in TV advertisements to avoid offending Muslims. In 3 weeks the Year of the Pig starts. Being Jewish I can wholeheartedly say the appearance of pigs on TV causes me absolutely no offence whatsoever.
