well, political correctness now affects pudding!

I know we regularly have comments on political correctness but I think this one takes the "pudding"!!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/8243648.stm

And one of the alternative names is incorrect anyway - it is not a "sponge"!

Re: well, political correctness now affects pudding!

This isn't about "political correctness" - whatever that is.  It's about people in the workplace being fed up of listening to idiots, and wanting to take away an opportunity for them to display their idiocy.

Reminds me of that Jackie Chan movie, Shanghai Knights where they are at a banquet in England and the butler offers Owen some spotted dick, that was funny.

HEH! What's all this then. Angry
Just popped in and find I'm being abused left right and centre.
I don't have a problem with being called Dick as a perfectly presentable derivative of my first name.

Another bit of nonsense - when you are given an injection now you are no longer told you will feel a 'small prick',  The PC brigade has got hold of this and you are now told you will feel a 'small scratch' Wink Wink

Take no notice Strat, they're only trying to needle you...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
