Spanish cartoon "insults" the royal family

From the BBC:

Spain's High Court has ordered the seizure of all copies of a magazine that carried a cartoon of Crown Prince Felipe and his wife having sex.

The cartoon on the front page of the weekly satirical magazine El Jueves depicted Prince Felipe saying sex was the closest he would come to working.

It was published after the government announced it would pay couples nearly $3,500 for each new baby born.

The high court judge ruled that the cartoon insulted the royal family...

I am not to sure if the magazine merits such censure but its cartoon sure is funny!
