The [url=http://www.canada.com/windsor/windsorstar/news/story.html?id=fdacc340-0395-4c0c-a15b-8ab1d7efcd5c]Windsor Star[/url] is reporting that a woman made 7 phone complaints to the Transit Windsor bus administration about an ad that was running on the buses. The ad for the Gamecube verison of Prince of Persia apparently frightened her 4 year old son. He was having nightmares and was afraid to ride the bus. She goes on to describe him also being afraid of the same ad featuring a gun. Since when does any PoP ad feature him holding a gun?

I see. The ads are being removed from the buses and I am dumbfounded yet again by the stupidity of people in this world.
I don’t mean to sound insensitive. If there was a legit problem with the ad then I have no problems with it being removed but for her to wrongly describe a PoP ad with a gun leads me to believe that there could have been an ad for silverware that offended her.
