A British cabbie was made to remove the small blue glass cross from his dashboard after a passenger complained it looked too phallic. Who, exactly, would see a cross and think "Penis?" A teenage boy, of course.
The York driver is a devout Catholic with a perfect driving record and zero complaints who merely wanted to keep the tiny (smaller than a pack of cards) Greek cross in his cab, as he'd done so for years.
It was his misfortune, then, to pick up a 15-year-old on his way to school who saw the cross and couldn't help but associate it with genitalia. The local council took the kid's complaint seriously and ordered it removed.
Upon seeing the small cross and realizing they were taking advice from a kid in the throes of puberty, the authorities admitted the complaint had been handled badly.
Later in the day the council forced the local baker to remove his yarmulke after a 13-year-old complained his head now looked like "a giant tit."
