Is it just me being a prude (or rather is it my "mind that's the problem"), or does this billboard on the SW side of the Elephant & Castle shopping centre cross the line into the realm of bad taste?

Agreed! Not exactly sparkling wit is it? Puerile advertising execs with very little talent I suspect.

Mrs Slocombe, are you free?

Some silly advertising man scarping the bottom of the litter box...I dont like it, this constant demeaning referral to the female sex puts me in mind of the dirty rap songs with violence that harms our girls.

I know its all in the mind and a word is just that but with the connotation it has in some parts of society.. still it's achieved the advertisers intention of grabbing your attention, but I would not buy it.

Not really.

But the advertisement provoked exactly the response the creater's wanted and you posted it into a public forum, so the advert spreads virally.

It's a clever underhand way of spreading their word.

Sign says it all, it's your mind? Some people think little furry animals. Others are fixated with sexual innuendos

Oh come on Paul, get real, only 4 year old girls might think "furry animal". Everyone else is thinking of a word that demeans women.

The font and colours definitely don't make me think "Here, kitty".

You can object to the ASA. They rolled over a number of the FCUK adverts, but of course they dont care. They got the publicity

The less attention this is given the better, in my humble opinion.
