Sometimes I wonder how people say things with a straight face.

For example, things like "It wants to kick-start a revolution in space by letting EU politicians not bureaucrats decide on priorities for the European Space Agency (Esa)."

Oh yes. The EU. That entity which is so well known for not drowning in bureaucra... oh... wait. Shit.

*facepalms*

Heinz pulls ad showing men kissing

...right. Because here in the UK we like the USA so much we want to become it. I forgot for a moment there.

I saw the ad on TV the other day, actually, and though the ad overall gets a pretty big *shrug* I thought it was sort of neat that the implication of homosexuality was acceptable here on daytime advertising, in however jokey a sense. Except. Apparently, not so much.

(Also, the difficult problem of parents having to discuss the issue of same-sex relationships with younger viewers? Really? So this isn't actually about your own discomfort, it's all about the children. Of course.)
