Leslie's Omnibus

Bus Fumes

I'll make you a bet that the moron who has a problem with the Chronicles of Narnia film would probably also best friends with the idiot mommies who took their kiddies to see "The 40 Year-Old Virgin." I'm really getting tired of "politically correct" bullshit like this. Really tired.

Speaking of PC asshattery, one letter -- one letter -- to the editor of a local newspaper and "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" is struck from a high school marching band's roster.

If we were sincerely worried about things we say, do, film, write or sing would be offensive, not a single soul would ever get out of bed in the morning. That song has been around since 1979, and all of a sudden it's offensive?

Puh-leeze, all you PC police-type people. Find something better to do with your time, would you? Like, get a life?

This political correctness thing is getting out of control.

SWMBO and I were at a synagogue board meeting last night. Someone mentioned that they had received a complaint about the handicapped seating provided during the High Holiday services last week.

Was it insufficient? Was access difficult? Was it uncomfortable?

No.

The seats were labeled "Handicapped Seating" with the wheelchair logo. That apparently was not "PC" enough for this person, who wanted some other "less offensive" label. So SWMBO and I tried to come up with a few alternatives:

Differently Abled.
Capability Challenged.
My Legs Don't Fucking Work Any More, OK?

...and more along those lines. You have to laugh to keep from crying...

Perhaps you should refer them to the wheelchair company who calls their latest model "Spazz" for the latest in PC crip language??? (See here: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/tm_objectid=16246856&method=full&siteid=94762&headline=outrage-at--spazz--chair-tag--name_page.html)
