    Winston Churchill seems to have kicked his habit after London museum removes cigar from famed photo

    Winston Churchill chomping on a cigar was a trademark for the war-time prime minister. But a London museum doctors a photo of Churchill (not pictured) and hangs it above its entrance.

    A big, fat cigar was almost a permanent fixture in photos of Britain's wartime leader Sir Winston Churchill.

    But now visitors entering The Winston Churchill's Britain at War Experience museum are being greeted with a tobacco-free Photoshopped image of him.

    The image in question is a well-known 1948 picture showing Britain's prime minister making a "V" with his fingers while chomping on a cigar. In the version hanging above the museum's main entrance, his trademark stogy is nowhere to be seen.

    A poor Photochop effort - I can see where they modded it. I've done better using M/S Paint...... [lolol]

    What a bunch of PC tossers,this kind of crap makes me sick.

    At one point they tried to get the English to stop flying the ST George cross because they said it was racist:mad:,well that back fired on them as now there are 14 ST George crosses flying on my Avenue alone one of which is mine and if you go down the road I counted of 23 flags on that street.

    More English fly the flag now more then ever,So thanks PC Brigade as you made the English more defiant than ever.[own2][winkthumb].

    I imagine the local imam had something to say about that, eh? Do the Brits still have chestnut trees and rope? (The village smithy still needs to hoist and handle his forgings, no?)

    This whole business is going to get to the point that if you say white milk (as vs. chocolate or strawberry) you'll be labeled racist.
