Mother Told Baby's Bare Bottom Is 'Pornographic'
When Gail Jordan found an old photograph of her son as a bouncing baby, she thought it would make the perfect decoration for the top of his 21st birthday cake.
But when she went to get a birthday cake, staff at a local store refused to help unless she agree to censor the picture, because it showed the child's bare bottom. They told her that the photograph, which featured her son David as a five-month-old baby, and lying on his front could be 'pornographic', and insisted on covering his backside with a star.
Jordan says she went to the branch of Asda to take advantage of their £9.97 offer to ice a birthday cake with a photo printed on top but the employee told her: "it could be anyone's child so it could be deemed pornographic."
"But I was asking to have it printed on a 21st birthday cake, so surely it was pretty obvious that it was my son. It's ridiculous - I understand they have rules, but there ought to be a place for common sense as well."
"In the end they would only do it with a star over his bottom, which to be honest made the whole thing even more hilarious."
A spokesman for the store says they have a policy of "no nudity, whatever the age of the subject."
