If you need perfection in describing what Lame is all about when it comes to the PC Hall Monitors... Please see her answer (last line)


-------------------------------------
Little Red Riding Hood ... Hansel and Gretel ... the Three Little Puppies?

That's what one British school renamed the traditional Three Little Pigs story for a school play, so as not to offend Muslims in the community, London's Daily Mail reported.

Organizers of the children's musical theater performance changed the lyrics' character's names in a move some — including Muslims — are saying went too far.

"The vast majority of Muslims have no problem whatsoever with the Three Little Pigs. It's always been the traditional way of telling the story and I don't see why that should be changed," Shaykh Ibrahim Mogra from the Muslim Council of Britain told the Daily Mail, saying the name change was "bizarre."

Gill Goodswen, head teacher of Stile Common Junior School, defending the move.

She said: "We have to be sensitive if we want to be multicultural. It was felt it would be more responsible not to use the three little pigs."

Yeah Gill what would we all do without you standing guard and using your overwrought carefully formed and rehearsed feelings rather than your brain. Thank you Gill. NO...really. Somebody some where is impressed.

Did someone eat the pigs in their version of the story?

I'm more surprised that she didn't say she changed it so as to not offend Jews. After all, they're not supposed to eat pork because it's "unclean".

Extremist Jews don't threaten to blow up places that offend them. (<Threaten> them maybe, but not <offend>)

We all saw what happened with the newspapers that dared to print an offending comic.

Do the puppies face Mecca and pray, during the play?

BTW as a Jew, hearing that pig story ruined my childhood. As did the rhyme "Little Jack Horner". How would he get into heaven with such unclean hands?

I'm working on setting up a politically correct sideshow. I already have a bearded person, a physically challenged head, a person with elevated levals of "bad cholesterol", and a snake bodied American. In addition, I will have a live webcam feed of a farm-raised, free range, chupacabra. Watch as his dagger like claws, and razor teeth, rip into organic soy burgers and vitamin supplements.

I find that offensive...therefore to protect everyone else from possibly having to go through that trauma that I thought I SHOULD feel and save them all from a moment of other than pure bliss I hereby change Josh's Name to Farnsworth.

No. Just Farnsworth. 'Superfluous' is a judgement call and has no place in a world where everything is monumentous.

It's not a judgment call. It's a fact. I am more fluous than extremely fluous. I am superfluous!

Doug, I think your past 5 posts should have said "Yup! Started already!". And been in Vandy's "Who's going to get F'd up tonight?" thread.

MAK I'm wondering the same thing.

Well I have a Scotts/Irish bloodline and am married to a Sullivan so maybe it's leftover mash from a few centuries ago. OR your perception is askew. MAK and I are pefectly perfect. And yopu can be Jocko O'Farnsworth for the day on us.

I don't understand it. NO, we DON'T Need to be sensitive to EVERYONES feelings. I'm sorry. NO ONE will EVER agree with EVERYTHING, if ANYTHING, someone or group says. This PC crap has got to stop. Everyone really needs to get over themselves and not search for things to be offended about.

Someone puposfully and maliciously stating something to hurt someone's feelings isn't cool. This type of crap though REAAAALLLY kicks me in my teeth. The people who get offended by something like the 3 little pigs need to join the broke leg gazelle in darwin's theory.

I am a card carrying member of the Infidel Party. We eat pork at least once a week and give women equal rights under the law - unless, they teach high school and fulfill every teenage boys hot teacher fantasy.
POOF!
