Boozing Chimps Victim of Political Correctness

In a continuing display of political correctness for a country that used to ridicule America for its own political correctness, England's animal welfare campaigners have complained about an ad by the Portman Group - the drink industry's organization that promotes socially responsible alcohol use - which shows humans drinking with chimps who get increasingly drunk and violent all to serves the campaign's tagline, "Don't be the Drunken Monkey."

For some reason, the activist group thinks this ad, which is plainly humor, will suddenly cause a mass increase in cruelty to apes and poaching of chimps for use in other ads. British logic, I guess.
