Adland: Google bans British greasy spoon café ad, for advertising their faggots and peas.. “You see, there’s a little café called ‘Fanny’s Rest Stop’ in Newport, which despite their terrible taste in fonts and eclectic 50-diner-ish furniture, serves all the classics that a proper greasy spoon in the UK should. The owner, Jo Evans-Pring, enlisted her friend Chris Barnbrook for help setting up her online presence, to promote her business and advertise. Things were going quite well, with new customers dropping in and business picking up, until one day an ad was unceremoniously rejected.” I thought a “faggot” was a bundle of sticks, and it is, but it’s also apparently a kind of meatball.
