China's CCTV bans pigs on TV

I can't begin to tell you how surprised and utterly disappointed I am with China's CCTV.

I would have expected this kind of self censorship in the name of political-correctness in the Middle East, Malaysia, Indonesia... or even US and Europe, but China?

What's next? Remove the pig from the Chinese zodiac and replace it with a camel?

What the heck is going on in China?

Luckily, Singapore is still sane... check out Swatch's Piggy Snout ads in the little red dot:
