Nanny's sense of humour
Bob Singh, 36, has been adding jokes to his promotional leaflets for more than 10 years at his Landmark store in Port Talbot, south Wales.
But police officers turned up at his general store to offer "appropriate advice" and warned he could face prosecution for breaching public order if he did not stop.
Mr Singh has been left baffled by the police intervention as he claims the jokes contain no bad language and are not racist. He admits some were "a bit saucy".
South Wales Police sergeant Simon Merrick said: "The content of promotional material which has been distributed in the area has been brought to our attention as being potentially inflammatory and offensive.
"The distributor has been appropriately advised and instructed to withdraw the leaflets from circulation."
Some of Mr Singh's jokes include:
:: What is the technical name for three days of horrendous weather followed by bright sunshine? A Welsh Bank Holiday!
:: What do you call a sheep with no legs? A Cloud!
:: What do you get when you cross an elephant with a rhino? El-if-i-no!
:: What do you call a deer with no eyes? I have No-I-Deer.
