*Political correctness has gone too far. I just got a memo from the PC police, ordering me to make the following changes in anything I say for public consumption. I assume other writers have received the same notice, so be prepared for some interesting changes. For example:
- You are no longer allowed to refer to backwoods denizens of Kentucky, Tennessee or West Virginia as “hillbillies.” They are to be known as “Appalachian-Americans.”
- Also, never refer to a woman as “easy.” From now on, such lasses are “horizontally accessible.”
- Oh, and be aware that your wife never “nags” you. Instead, she may be “verbally repetitive.”
- And ladies, you will no longer refer to a boorish companion as a “total ass.” Instead, he has suffered “a rectal-cranial inversion.”
There were more, but that’s enough for one day.
