AXN banned as Indian society falls apart

Anshul Tiwari informs me via email that the TV channel AXN has been banned in India for two months. The UNI report on the subject says:
The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on Wednesday issued the order for blocking signals of the channel in the country taking note of its programme World's Sexiest advertisements telecast sometime ago, a senior official said.
Meanwhile, out on the streets, millions on Indians driven to the depths of sexual despair by that depraved show are invading orifices without consent, as the fabric of Indian society falls apart. Oh woe.

Or rather, pah! I'm just happy those jokers haven't banned the internet yet: after all, there's far more sex to be seen here than on poor old AXN.
