They Club Seals Don't They?

The animal advocacy organization will stop distributing a New Yorker-style cartoon protesting the annual Canadian seal hunt after the North American distributor of Canadian Club whisky failed to see the humour in the drawing of a seal requesting a drink from a bartender with: "Anything but a Canadian Club."
