Prison newspaper pulps 50,000 copies over fears cartoon of bearded pig in turban would offend Muslims
by Stephen Wright
A prison newspaper has been withdrawn for publishing a satirical cartoon of a bearded pig dressed in a turban.
Almost 50,000 copies of Inside Time were pulped as jail bosses took offence at the illustration accompanying the article 'Porky's Revenge'.
The piece, written by an inmate at Hull Prison, suggested that swine flu was the result of a failed plot by Osama Bin Laden to 'eradicate every pig in Christendom'.
Andy Thackwray's article was accompanied by an image of a bearded, turbanned pig standing on its hind legs and sneezing.
