A café owner in the town where 5-year-old April Jones was abducted and murdered has defended putting up a sign featuring a joke about kidnapping.Just savour those words. You have to defend humour, now.
The sign read: “The more you weigh, the harder you are to kidnap! Stay safe. Eat cake!!”And a local resident, one Angharad Penrhyn, tweeted a photo ‘questioning it’. As you do, these days.
Penrhyn said she was apparently told she was being “hypersensitive” about an incident which happened “years ago”, when she complained about the sign.Good! If a few more of these whinging ‘concerned types’ were met with a robust ‘Sod off, princess!’ the world would be a better place…
Responding to the complaint, the café owner claimed in an interview with the BBC that April Jones’ family had visited the café but “have not said anything” .And even if they had, why should that oblige the café owner to remove it. They’ve already lobbied to have a perfectly good cottage knocked down, FFS!
The Independent has attempted to contact Chimes café for a comment.Why? Why not contact Angharad Penrhyn instead, and ask her how she manages to get through a day without hyperventilating?
