Kate Moss-Inspired 'Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels' Ads Banned in U.K.

While Australia frets about aggressive M&M's, the U.K.'s Advertising Standards Authority is taking on a worthier target (for once): anorexia. The board has just banned Zazzle ads for children's T-shirts emblazoned with the 2009 Kate Moss quote, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." That's a blatant lie, by the way, but I'd expect as much from a coked-up bonebag who's probably never even seen an eggnog cupcake before, let alone eaten one. But I digress. The general feeling among the complainants was that the slogan sends a bad message to young girls about beauty and health. That's an understandable concern, though I'm surprised they aren't even angrier that the shirts cost £14. Nothing Kate Moss says is worth that much money. Along with the ads, the shirts themselves are no longer available at the Zazzle site.
