The Mugwumps

What a brilliant word, and why has it not been made into a kiddies television program - it's almost as good a name as The Wombles!

I'd never heard it before so I had to look it up.  (My Algonquian is a bit rusty; I much prefer Arapahoe after the chicken song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UEXn2MZ3vs in the 1980s Laugh.)

How long before someone somewhere declares that it is racist in some way.

Just like the chocolate teapot and the more recent "it's your turn to make the tea" monkey.

Yes, the Cherokees protested at the Jeep Cherokee.

There were also protests by Scandinavians in the 1930s over General Motors Viking when General Motors claimed that “the development of the Viking car closely parallels the development of the Viking youth in attaining manhood,” where “only those best fitted for leadership survived to contribute to the strength and superiorities of the race.”

I wonder if any species of fish protested at Madasafish.  The suggestion that mental illness is significantly more prevalent in fish than in other species does seem unfounded and libellous.  Now mad cows on the other hand ...
