Politically Correct?

Published November 1, 2007 by missharleyquinn

CNN had a discussion group on this afternoon to discuss race and bigotry.  I must admit that I wasn’t watching it, just listening as I cleaned the house…but, there was this one part where one of the commentators referred to race relations as the white elephant in the room…shouldn’t that be the black elephant?  And does it upset elephants to be compared to  a large issue no one wants to talk about?  Is that how we see elephants, large things to desperately ignore?   How would a person feel if we referred to the things we don’t want to talk about as ‘the fat redneck in the corner’?  Or the ‘white gimp’?  If there isn’t an elephant defamation league I really think there should be one…I’m going to write to Al Sharpton about this tragic issue.  But, gotta clean the house first…


All Things Dull and Ugly

“All Things Dull And Ugly” from Monty Python’s Contractual Obligations Album

All things dull and ug-ly,
All creatures, short and squat,
All things rude and na-sty,
The Lord God made the lot.

Each little snake that poisons,
Each little wasp that stings,
He made their prudish venom,
He made their horrid wings.

All things sick and cancerous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dangerous,
The Lord God made them all.

Each nasty little hornet,
Each beastly little squid,
Who made the spiky urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did!

All things scant and ulcerous,
All pox both great and small,
Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
The Lord God made them all.
