    Signed and shared on FB this earlier today, and I've emailed it to several people too.

    Im not sure what's worse - the people who dream up this type of offensive sh1t or people who cannot see why it is so wrong

    I know, I know - it just makes me want to

    On what planet is that even remotely funny - I assume that is what the tag line was aiming for. My goodness, talk about offensive. I hope whoever thought that one up loses his/her job over it.

    Maybe a complaint to the Magazine watchdog would be in order, it says that you need evidence, I don't have a copy of zoo and I wouldn't feel comfortable buying it. But anyone wants to, here is their contact.

    I find it interesting, you talk about some nonsense thing on bubhub and the thread goes into meltdown. You talk about something horrible that are happening to refugees but no one cares. It is as if we don't think of refugees as equals.

    This kind of thing makes me feel a little pessimistic about our society and where its heading. How on earth did the editorial team think that competition and its utterly offensive by-line was okay? The 'shoot you' "joke" (For want of a better word) makes me want to vomit. Yes, I do feel that strongly about it.

    Just confirms my view of those lads mags. Trashy, offensive and bad for the soul. So little respect for people.

    It's sad isn't it.

    So sadly true - maybe we should title the thread 'OMG Aslyum seekers wants to be PM and make us all wear hijabs!' the thread would get some mileage, or 'Are Aslyum seekers fat?'

    Zoo really does appeal to the bottom feeders of humans. Link signed. I work with interpreters who deal with victims of torture. How people think this is funny is beyond me. And beebs is right. This won't even get a look in, but a PWP thread will get everyone fired up. How depressing.
