Controversial Ad Cartoon

My home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba has had a controversial advertisement pulled from circulation.
The ad is for a liquidation sale at a local car dealership. The flyer was distributed earlier in the week and was quickly followed by public and official complaints.
It does seem to be very distasteful. What's your thoughts?

I think it's a very good and funny drawing. However, I think it would be more appropriate for say if an Indie neo-grunge band called Bad Drivers was performing at a bar on Saturday night. It's not the best image for a used car dealership though.

Wow. Did anybody actually *look* at the cartoon before they slapped it into the car ad? What were they thinking?
