Offensive "lascivious sausages" that are offered by a butcher

The police asked the butcher to change such inscriptions on the signboard as "busty bird" and "lascivious sausages" for more decent ones, because complaints from local residents began to come. Pete Lуmer, who works in a butcher's shop, started to receve complaints from passers-by about his insulting and improper inscriptions on the signboard. The butcher believes that political correctness has gone crazy and people are looking for some subtext in completely ordinary things. "I wrote similar inscriptions for many years to attract the attention of customers, and no one has complained to me before. On the contrary, they complimented me for resourcefulness and imagination. But last month someone complained to the police about my signboard, saying that it was insulting. Last week a man came into the shop and asked to remove the signboard. Honestly, I am annoyed by such people", - said Pete.

Complaints began to arise after the butcher wrote on the signboard: "Big cocks at a discount". People started to bother Pete and demand to change the inscription. Then he replaced it with: "Look at your butt before you leave". "This a light humor. People go by, read the inscription and smile. As for me, it is funny. I do not want to upset anyone. I am not the person who would write something terrible. The tradition of unusual inscriptions began with the previous butcher of the shop. He wrote something similar and some people even took pictures with a signboard. So it seemed to me that the time have changed a little. I think that political correctness is a little out of control ", - he said.

Nevertheless, not all people consider inscriptions on the signboard as insulting. Many users of social networks have taken the side of the butcher: "This is really funny and entertaining. I myself often take pictures of this signboard to show my colleagues at work". "I know Pete for a long time, and he has a great sense of humor. I do not know what happened, now people began to get upset and take offense at anything. Why no one understands that everyone can not be pleased". "It is just a joke. I did not think that someone was giving to them such close attention". "He just wanted to attract the attention of buyers, and some even went to the police."
