The PC police have struck again and this time the poor victim is the Gingerbread Man. Yes, the beloved anatomically ambiguous cookie has suddenly been castrated. Menus at 400 primary schools in Lancashire now refer to the biscuit as gingerbread “person”. The politically correct Lancashire Council have fortunately bowed to public pressure and have agreed to give the Gingerbread back his manhood after Christmas.Sheez, next thing you know the friggin redhead police will be harassing the poor cookie!

Geez, Nanny State what’s the color red? The council in Castleford, West Yorkshire decided that the Tickle Cock Bridge should be renamed to save embarrassment for civil servants but the locals said stuff politically correctness they like their Victorian landmark just the way it is. The council in their infinite wisdom decided to erect a new plaque renaming the bridge Tittle Cott, which resulted in a massive backlash by residents. A public meeting was organized and a large majority voted to have the name reinstated. Back to being embarrassed you civic leaders.
Psst Tickle Cock Bridge has been around since the late 19th century and refers to a “monkey run” where boys and girls did their courting. Geez, they should be grateful it wasn’t built in the 21st Century or it more than likely would have been called “**** **** Bridge” (you fill in the blanks!)
OMG, Nanny State’s broadcaster has changed the ending to the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme. Seems the little snowflakes might get too upset if they think the big ol’ egg can’t be put back together again so it’s much better if they just think all the King’s horses “made Humpty happy again”. BBC take a bow.
Here’s the thing people, if you get way too much sniggering over the dish “Spotted Dick” on your canteen menu, by all means change it to “Spotted Richard” but they are still gonna laugh. A canteen at Flintshire County Council offices have changed the name of the traditional dish on all their menus after a few childish remarks were made about the name. Hmm, so it is now being referred to as a Spotted Richard which has got the political correctness mafia all aghast!
Psst I fear I would be one of those people making a childish remark too !
