Right, lets get some persepctive on this instead of going bat-sh*t crazy ranting with only half the facts presented
The designer of these books creates them for the alternative scene, adults with a sense of humor. These WERE NEVER INTENDED FOR KIDS.
That's fact one out of the way.
Secondly, the publisher covers all kinds of content, not specifically kids books. So, blaming a publisher for actually publishing something is
Tesco have also apologized that these were found in the children's section on their site. They have stated clearly that this was an error by a third
party site management company who added the coloring book to the children section without realizing it wasn't for kids.
Then, as a final little facepalm moment, how many kids do you know with credit or debit cards doing the weekly shopping on the Tesco site? Yeah, I'm
betting not many.
So, before people start with their completely irrational and predictable "won't someone think of the children!!!!!!111111" posts, get some damn
perspective and realize that even if this was a real story deserving of some debate, parents are STILL RESPONSIBLE for what they give their kids, like
