Brits Ban TV Ad For Showing Healthy, Human Shaped, Female Model

Over on Airstrip One, a government "Advertising Standards Authority" has banned the continued airing of an advertisement featuring a healthy, athletic, human, and human shaped female with a body mass index of 18.8 by asserting that the size 8 model is "unhealthily underweight" (archived). The hamplanet censor squad cited visible ribs and muscle definition during athletic movements as evidence the 5'10" model was unhealthily underweight during those scenes.

We desperately await the UK's entry of "healthily weighted" athletes into international sporting competitions.
