Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

Political Correctness Gone Mad

No, this is not a post about the Daily Mail paying High Court Judges to read idiotic statements off prompt-cards.

I just went into the town with the kids to get a gingerbread man cutter, so we can do some baking together. I said to the woman in Steamers, "We're looking for a gingerbread man cutter." She said,

"You can't just get one, you have to have a whole family."

And it's true: you have to buy a pack of four, with one large man, one large woman (you can tell it's a woman because she's wearing a dress) and two smaller versions of the same. But, I thought, why could it not be a short-haired woman wearing trousers, or (let's face facts) just a naked person of either sex, with hair that might be long or short, you can't really tell, especially if it's tied back?

Nobody needs four cutters, it's just bloody silly. You can only cut out one at a time. And with a dress-shape, it just looks like a great big lump of nothing. *Sigh*
