This week the gingerbread man dodged a bullet in the UK. He was thisclose to being furthermore referred to as (heaven forbid) a gingerbread person. But this got me thinking:
Where would this kind of political correctness take us next?
- Could we no longer go “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs,” since it’s insensitive to cuckoo people?
- Would the Kool Aid Man become the Kool Aid Douchebag?
- What would become of McDonald’s beloved character, Grimace?
