Pole Dancing Mom Okay; Alien Not

I love the wacky juxtaposed values here:
Pole dancing ad ruled OK but aliens are out,
By Liam Houlihan and David Nankervis

POLE dancing strippers are compatible with family values, but animated aliens bearing hamburgers are deemed unfit for television, Australia's ad watchdog says.

The Advertising Standards Bureau dismissed 200 public complaints about a Nando's chicken chain ad featuring a pole dancer wearing only a G-string.

But an animated McDonald's advertisement showing a girl being abducted by aliens and rewarded with a Happy Meal has been axed for undermining "stranger danger" messages.
