I Don't Think This Was What Andy Warhol Had In Mind...

Primary school teacher Paul Pawlowski, 32, was left horrified when he stumbled upon the offensive items while browsing the UK site.
...when he (probably didn't) said everyone would be famous for 15 minutes.
Mr Pawlowski told The Sun: 'I was horrified to see these things listed for sale.
'This is Amazon, a global company.
'OK they are put up there by third party sellers. But you would think Amazon would have some filter on what words you can use. It's truly shocking.'
 Really? Why, did they leap into your basket and force you to buy them?
Amazon confirmed the items were no longer for sale.
A spokesman said: 'All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account. The products in question are no longer available.'
Congratulations, Mr Pawlowski, you win Snowflake Of The Minute award.  Now budge up, there's going to be another along in a minute...

I wonder what search terms he was putting in to find those. Perhaps "I desperately want to be offended" works?

Don't know about the bib, but those automaton piggy banks (niggy banks?) are quite popular with collectors, not a few of whom are black! I believe there is even a museum for them. Ultimately harmless, but there are always those who exist to whine.

I would like one of those bibs- the woman depicted is quite fetching. Anyway, shouldn't the twat have been whingeing to the Guardian?

Paul Pawlowsk, grow up. Horrific is Belsen, ISIS, IRA, Communism etc

The "horrifying item": http://oi64.tinypic.com/2qwj42a.jpg

A ~1960s toy is not horrifying - it doesn't kill or mutilate [unlike RoPs]. History is what it was, live with it.

Not clever enough to write for CiF. Oh, the shame!
