A US company is selling this bear in a straight-jacket ahead of Valentine’s Day. Naturally some priggish Americans have claimed it stigmatises mental illness. Fortunately executives at The Vermont Teddy Bear Co. have taken, and I quote, “the difficult decision,” to continue selling the bear despite the outraged complaints. A triumph of capitalism over political correctness, I’m sure you’ll agree.
