+ - Old School Censorship: Piglet banned in Qatar

Submitted by
Anonymous Coward
Anonymous Coward writes "A blogger on Qatar Living posted a crazy story about how he found that Disney's Piglet had been meticulously censored out of a children's Winnie-the-Pooh enyclodpedia. State censors (from either Qatar or Saudi Arabia) had deliberately "censored" out each and every picture of Piglet from hundreds of pages in the book with a black marker.
In the Middle East pigs are seen as dirty animals and Muslims are forbidden to eat them but trying to get rid of cute little Piglet is just crazy! Full post with pictures from inside the book here : http://www.qatarliving.com/blog/camper/disneys-pig let-banned-in-middle-east"

Anyone can make an omelet with eggs. The trick is to make one with none.
