This takes the biscuit, now I AM fuming!

black sheep ?

Right! After my slight missive yesterday, what I read in todays Daily Telegraph got me raging. So much so that Dad came in to see if I was alright!

Baa,Baa Black Sheep has now become Baa,Baa Rainbow Sheep!

snow white

Now we have news that Snow White cannot have any dwarfs, for fear of upsetting 'vertically challenged' people,(that would be dwarfs then).

Now for the real cruncher! This is SO ridiculous, that I laughed before the rage took over.

three little pigs

The Three little pigs has been pulled from primary schools in case it upsets Muslims

Now I'm not against Muslims, as long as they don't bother me, or try to force their religion on me. Just the same as I am with any other religion. I loathe it all.

But that isn't the point of this rant, it's the Politically correct tossers who ruin it for everyone. Even the Muslim council of Britain has condemned the decision!

I'm off for a game of chase the Spastic round my virtual golf course. What do you think?

I quite like HTML!!

I'm confused - what do the 3 Little Pigs have to do with Muslims?

Achmed Smith said...

Dear, oh dear, Karmyn, if you don't know by now then I'm afraid there is no hope for you; or us!

John - Those piccies I took in the pub are no good! HTML expect I may be, but I'm a shit photographer!

john I respect everyone's right to have their own beliefs and views as long as I can have mine!
I read this article and felt that the changing of Nursery rhymes is a step too far. It seems our traditions, culture and festivals are being eroded or even banned while many others are observed, which will not bring the harmony we desire!

karmyn they are banned from eating pig products!

C'mon, it's time for a new set of nursery rhymes anyway:

There was a little boy with a Playstation

Your runners are el cheapo

I've got an ipod, you've got nowt

Sun-dried tomatoes & basil pesto are so yum, yum, yum

etc.

The guvmunt* of Gordy just don't know when to stop do they? I feel for you guys, I really do.

*munt is a particularly derogative Souf African slang word.

I'm thinking...I hope you're joking but I strongly suspect you're not.

Apparently some junior schools have banned Beatrix Potter books, because the latent violence in them might upset the kiddy-winks!

For instance, Gemima Puddleducks eggs, that she is trying to hatch, are eaten by foxhounds after they have torn her friend, the Fox, to pieces!

Bloody disgusting! Not the story, the schools for banning the books.
They probably think that the kids would be influenced by the violence and go out and stab somebody.

John, we've been hearing about this story even on this side of the pond! Ridiculous, esp. considering that even the Muslims think the gov't has gone too far. I think that Osama must be in his cave somewhere laughing at the stupid infidels...

Lord Andrew, welcome to madness!

All the rest..........it's nuts!

sablonneuse said...

I'm lost for words. Why can't they these 'do-gooders(???)' do something useful useful for a change. I suppose some people get paid huge salaries to come up with crap ideas like these. . . .

john.g. said...

Beccy, I don't joke about such matters that rile me!

SpanishGoth said...

I take it bacon butties are off the menu too?

bastards!!!

john.g. said...

Goth, LOL. What arseholes!

Joshua Goldberg said...

That's done! I'm fed-up with this country. I'm going to emigrate to Israel, and open a Pork Pie factory and make my fortune.

john.g. said...

Have a nice trip Joshua!

PI said...

Don't let the bastards get you down!

meredic said...

Packet of pork scratchings anyone?

Jayne said...

I live in a Muslim country, but even so, we still get pig meat products............what's more, even the rag'eads get their slaves to go into the 'No Muslims Beyond This Point' bit of the supermarket to buy the bloody bacon for them! If a muslim country can make allowances for us infidels, then why can't the UK make allowances for it's own people????
*sigh* rant over.

This is not a new thing, I have worked in a school for many years and we have not been able to read the three little pigs or sing baa baa black sheep. We do not do the chirstmas story either.
