A farmer has bizarrely called for an apology from the Oxford Dictionary after their use of phrases in relation to Pigs, as it is offensive to the animals.
The Dictionary contains phrases that compare overconsumption to being like a pig – fat and glutenous. He has written to the OED and asked for its removal of the phrases.
“Pigs have feelings. They tell me that they are offended, but as I am the only one who can understand what they are trying to tell me, I have to take the battle up on their behalf.” he said.
“They feel embarrassed and ridiculed that people think they are just fat messes of shit. It needs to stop.”
A spokesperson from the OED commented “Yes. We received a letter. It made for a very good read with my bacon sarny. We will not be removing the phrases, because it is in relation to a pig. A fucking pig.”
We went back to farmer for comment, but he was unavailable due to it being at the same time as his gimp fetish session.
