Food Advertisment Regulations Make No Sense!

I can't think of a more ridiculous ruling than the banning of Tony Hancock's iconic Go To Work on An Egg advert by the Broadcast Advertising Clearance Centre.

What, you may ask, has this innocuous 50-year-old advert done to aggrieve the watchdogs?

Apparently, it fails to promote a 'varied' diet and so therefore cannot be allowed to be broadcast.

Extra points for using the word 'barmy.'
