file under stupid

we do not like what we don't understand.

Not amusing, but puzzling, is the AsdaTescoSainsburyMorrison supermarket decision to ban an album cover, deemed 'inappropriate'.

Journal for Plague Lovers has some of the finest music released this year, and an equally fine cover painting by Jenny Saville. No guns, naked bodies, sexism or racism, but a painting of a face which looks to some blood-splattered, to others birthmarked. 

A preemptive strike in case a customer actually thinks something about something and god forbid, does something.

Don't think.
