Just How Offensive Are Ringtones?

from the apparently,-they-should-be-banned dept

There are plenty of people who find ringtones to be somewhat offensive — but mainly in the annoying sense. However, it appears that some political group in India has found ringtones of the Indian national anthem so offensive, that they’re calling for it to be banned. Certainly seems a bit extreme. You have to imagine that anyone who has the national anthem (even in ringtone form) on their phone is probably pretty patriotic in the first place. Rosanne (Barr) should be thankful she didn’t sing the Indian national anthem at some point. Imagine what they’d do to her?
