Comedians stop Christian group using their catchphrases to evangelise

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Lawyers representing the comedians behind The Catherine Tate Show and Little Britain have forced Christian Publishing and Outreach to withdraw posters that used catchphrases from the two shows. The offending posters featured tiresome, ubiquitous phrases like "Am I bovvered" and "Yeah but no but yeah" alongside Bible quotes, with the aim of attracting youngsters to attend church services. Clearly the comedians didn't appreciate their work being used by evangelical Christians, and the CPO have been forced to take the posters out of circulation.
