The Twelve Days of

A couple of days ago I checked PivotPoint's Daily Chuckle (their slogan is "We build smiles") and got a GOOD chuckle! The post was a make-fun piece on American society's current fixation on avoiding the word "Christmas" and any reference to any idea, thought, word, or glance that might, possibly, conceivably, by stretching your imagination to its limit, be considered in any way the least bit offensive or objectionable to anyone on the face of the Earth, or on any other planet of course, no matter how obscure that possibility of offense might be.

The piece was entitled The Twelve Days of . The funniest one to me was the 8th day of the Eurocentrically-imposed midwinter festival, on which my significant other in a consenting adult monogamous relationship gave to me "eight economically disadvantaged female persons stealing milk-products from enslaved Bovine-Americans." Check it out. It is hilarious!

For more discussion of the topic of the political incorrectness of the word Christmas, take a look at Merry Christmas. For another interesting post on this issue from a Jewish viewpoint, see the November 30th entry at Moral Health.

I think the anti-PC movement is gaining ground!
