John Kerry to the Rescue

Winnie the Pooh can hurt Muslim's sentiments!

Winnie the Pooh, the Piglet and The Three Little Pigs must be among every child's favourite cartoon and comic characters, but workers at a council office in UK have been asked to remove all traces of pigs from the office, lest it offends Muslim staff.

Workers in the benefits department at Dudley Council, West Midlands, were told to remove or cover up all pig-related items, including toys, porcelain figures, calendars and even tissue boxes featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet, reports The Sun.

Update: They came for Piglet... and now they've come for piggy banks.
