Baa, baa, Rainbow Sheep...have you any sense?


The London's Times reports that a school in the UK changed the words of the old Black Sheep nursery rhyme to "baa baa rainbow sheep" as part of an effort to improve equal opportunities for its students.

Viewers in the UK are complaining that a Land Rover ad featuring a sled-driving Eskimo being outrun in the snow by a four-by-four is racist and disrespectful of Inuit culture, according to Brand Republic.

In the ad, the sledder is so distracted by the Land Rover that he crashes into a pile of snow and is left chasing after the runaway sled. In addition to denigrating Inuit culture, the viewers complained that the ad encouraged behavior harmful to the environment.





Plenty more insanity at the link.

Reading tripe like that pushes me to misanthropy.

Teachers at the nurseries also have changed the ending of Humpty Dumpty so as not to upset the children, and dropped the seven dwarfs from the title of Snow White.

Reminds me of those "Politically Correct" fairy tales that Larry the Cable Guy reads on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour show.
