New Zealand looks like a lovely place, but man — are these government officials uptight! In Invercargill, New Zealand, that dumb “Jesus Is a Cunt” shirt has been banned…you know, the one with the nun masturbating with a crucifix? Yeah, it’s been banned there.
Yet, a shop in town decided, “We’ll carry the cunt shirt anyways.” I don’t agree with them banning the shirt, but come on shop keeper: Why don’t you just start selling heroin, too?
According to Stuff.co.nz, police seized all of the shirts Monday in a one-man raid on the store. The merchandise will be sent to the department which will decide, after consulting with police, whether the law-rejecting owners of Impuls’d, the store in question, will be charged with any criminal offenses.
I bet you those confiscated shirts and sweatshirts end up on the backs of children in third world countries…like the shirts for the losing team that they make in advance of the World Series and the Super Bowl. Or the cops may just hold a ritual burning.
Sergeant Brock Davis of Invercargill’s police force said police visited the store mid-afternoon and seized between 10 and 15 hooded tops and long-sleeved T-shirts with the offending words on them. According to reports, if someone complained to police about another person wearing one of the offending shirts in public, police would investigate and charges could be brought for disorderly, offensive or insulting behavior. If convicted, penalties ranged from fines to three months’ jail time.
