Irony explained in one easy lesson

United Kingdom: Steve "Birdshit" Green has complained about the atheist bus ad to the Advertising Standards Authority. His cause for complaint? they break rules on substantiation and truthfulness.

Given his previous success in speeding up the repeal of the blasphemy laws, we will no doubt see a reintroduction of the ban on religious advertising any day now.

'No God' campaign draws complaintBBC News, 8th January 2009.

Update: It gets funnier.

Funny, I always thought he was: "Dogshit".

... and I note that your tag for him uses that label too.
Why is this, is birdshit somehow more polite than dog-poo?
Or is it fear of emulating "Viz"?

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
