You're not allowed to call them "Thieving Gypsy Bastards" either

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viz_(comic)

wikipedia said:
The comic was reprimanded by the United Nations after featuring a strip called 'The Thieving Gypsy Bastards'.[17] During the resulting court case, UK newspaper The Sun ran a story revealing that the principal Roma man who initiated the action against them was in fact also being tried for (and was later found guilty of) handling stolen property. Viz then later ran a short strip called "The Nice, Honest Gypsies", featuring a kindly Gypsy woman selling pegs door-to-door and helpfully returning forgotten change.

I jiust clicked on your link to Wikipedia and all I got was this message: Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did to Emma Freud. Your edits appear to constitute vandalism and have been reverted.

I have been a naughty boy haven't I?

What about "New Age, traveling, thieving, bar-stewards" then? Is that allowed?:D
