Spanish Socialists: Protecting Royals From Bad Jokes?

Pickled Politics reports that Spain may have a Socialist government but is still under the Royal Jackboots. Two journalists get fined £2,100 apiece for lampooning royal procreation and a socialist baby bounty law providing €2,500. The story dates from the summer when El Jueves ran a cover cartoon showing a Royal coupling. Copies were snatched from newstands nationwide and sequestered.

Basically the Prince is saying that if he gets his wife pregnant it will be the first proper work in his life. Not very funny. The BBC have more. Cartoon Unexpurgated.
