Bank Drops Piggybanks For Fear Of Offending Muslims
AS is often the way, this is the non-Muslim fearing the fear in the Muslim: “Knorbert the piglet has been dropped as the mascot of Fortis Bank after it decided to stop giving piggy banks to children for fear of offending Muslims.”
A spokesman told the Dutch media that “Knorbert does not meet the requirements that the multicultural society imposes on us”. The bank added that there had been “a number of reactions to the pig” and that a new gift and character were being developed that would be “fun for children of any persuasion”.
Fun in banking. When will the madness end..?
