    I suspect most of us on here are too old and smelly to be comfortable with political correctness.
    The problem as I see it is that pc is designed to shut down debate - basically saying that such and such an idea is so disgusting no right thinking person could think it. So that puts me in a basket of fellow deplorables!
    More seriously though we are crossing a line that says people have a right not to be offended - already in some enacted law - because it says ‘if you feel offended you are offended’ which is a subjective snowflake test. It is NOT the same as saying a reasonable person would be offended therefore it IS offensive.
    I can understand why Golliwogs are ‘out’. Our innocent childhood memories should not blind us to an offensive caricature. Equally, a huge amount of humour is based on physical characteristics and context matters immensely. Swathes of jokes risk offending someone. I don’t believe we have a right to be sensitive. I do think we have a duty not to be gratuitously offensive, you bald or ginger b******s!

    I spotted mixed bags of Black Jacks and Fruit Salad sweeties being put on display in Home Bargains today. I feel the need to investigate further next time I go in there.:yum

    Someone at work once asked me if I disliked them because they were black I simply replied no its because you're a c@*t.
    I dislike c@*ts of all genders creeds and colours and therefore consider myself to be a very modern and non discriminative kind of guy.

    I chose my moment to reply to HER whilst my collegues were sent to do suddenly very important stuff out of earshot. My word/her word but it did cast a bit of a shadow over me with my "superiors" for a while.

    Number 9 was a quote by King Harold. Number 14 is a mis-quote. The correct quote was given by my physics teacher (who was a bit deaf). He'd just given us some homework to do during the school holidays. Someone shouted out "you cnut" !, to which he replied "I can you know".
    Number 17 was always said to me and I already had curly hair which I hated. I used to wet my hair and comb it flat but it just went curly again. I later learned that girls liked curly hair so my opinion changed slightly.
