Update on Paddy Power

The Irish Advertising Agency has ordered Paddy Power to take down its advertisement using the Last Supper to advertise gambling after receiving over one hundred complaints. Paddy Power received over one hundred more.

Paddy Power replaced the advertisements which had said "There is a place for fun and game" with new advertisements that said "There is a place for fun and games. Apparently this isn't it". A spokesperson for the company complained, "We still don't believe we've pushed the boundaries too far..Some people just take this stuff too seriously."

No, apparently some people don't take this stuff seriously enough.
