A commercial for sports goods company XXL has been dropped from daytime television in Norway after viewers complained it was "stupid and provocative".

The advert features a hoard of zombies rampaging in a suburb, with residents fighting back with golf clubs, footballs and tennis rackets as weapons drew multiple complaints when it was broadcast on Norwegian prime-time television over the weekend.

Looks like closing time outside our local pub on a Saturday night.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

So do I, but must say its not the thing I would want the kids to see while eating their beans on toast, especially if they haven`t done their homework yet.
I like freaky things, but a lot of people don`t. Maybe they should only screen it on certain channels at certain times.

The things people get upset over.  Then the things they should be upset over they let slide.

I have met a few and they were lovely people but sadly lacking in the humour department :hmm:

Oh .... I'm surprised because hanging upside down is supposed to be very good for the spine .... gives the vertebrae a chance to properly stretch out. Maybe you should get that looked at, lol!

broke my back in April, only the L1, but still sore, so maybe i will give hanging upside down a miss for the moment, but will bear it in mind for the future, could do with being stretched a few more inches. :cry:
