I'd Like A Gallon Of BBQ Pork, Three Bacon Burgers, Half A Dozen Ham Steaks, Three O' Four Pickled Pigs Feet... And A Diet Coke
And an extra-large order of Moslems can kiss my pig-eatin' ass

WARNING!! Harsh language alert! If harsh language offends, I suggest you pass on this one.

Wake me when either this stupid shit finally comes to an end, or the British finally grow a brain and repatriate (ie: kick the hell out) all the trouble-making moslems... and send those politically correct dip-shits with 'em.

Three Little Pigs 'too offensive'
By Sean Coughlan
BBC News, education

A story based on the Three Little Pigs fairy tale has been turned down by a government agency's awards panel as the subject matter could offend Muslims. The digital book, re-telling the classic story, was rejected by judges who warned that "the use of pigs raises cultural issues".

Becta, the government's educational technology agency, is a leading partner in the annual Bett Award for schools.

The CD-Rom digital version of the traditional story of the three little pigs, called Three Little Cowboy Builders, is aimed at primary school children. But judges at this year's Bett Award said that they had "concerns about the Asian [moslem] community and the use of pigs raises cultural issues".

The feedback from the judges explaining why they had rejected the CD-Rom highlighted that they "could not recommend this product to the Muslim community". They also warned that the story might "alienate parts of the workforce (building trade)".

The judges criticised the stereotyping in the story of the unfortunate pigs: "Is it true that all builders are cowboys, builders get their work blown down, and builders are like pigs?"
Seriously... how in the hell do you argue with "logic" like that? By these judges reasoning, all swine should be done away with throughout Britain... right?

And I'm surprized that there's not one person in all of Great Britain that's lobbying for the Cowboy demographic. I just know that there's gotta be at least one Brit wrangler somewhere out there riding the range of Northumbia or someplace like that.

I can hear him now... "yippie-yi-oh-tie-yay Old Chappie! Wot, wot!!?? Strays on the noooorth foooorty? Oh dear, oh dear, OH DEAR!"

And I'll bet he looks a helluva lot like Richard Harris.

Actually, Cavey, this WASN'T the Muslims. The Muslims made a statement saying they had no problem with this because, wait for it... It is a children's story!

No, the idiots are the PC crowd. They imagine that things like Baa baa Black sheep, three little pigs, and what have you MIGHT offend, and so announce that it DOES offend, thereby providing the biggest insult of all: ie. we don't want to use words like this because you're too thick to understand what they really mean...

Mac,
Thanks for the heads-up. Yep... looks like your right about the main trouble makers here being the PC Gestapo.

But I said on the initial posting, I'd still like to see the trouble making moslems kicked out.

Exactly when, between winning the first successful anti-communist counter-insurgency in Asia, (Malaya) and now, were the British collectivly castrated by brain-dead fools?

Between this & the latest from " Britain's Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith. The Daily Mail Headline about her action reads: "Government Renames Islamic Terrorism As anti-Islamic Activity' To Woo Muslims" (full commentary here: http://www.ocregister.com/opinion/islamic-anti-pigs-1967025-activity-islam ) I'm beginning to wonder if Orwell was writing fiction or actually had a vision of Britian's future.

Hey pet, we divvn't talk like that in Northumbria.

We don't speak up because we've been conditioned, and we're afraid to be called racist.
