And Then Another Head Shaker...

As I’ve said before, every night I retire I think to myself, after that days lunacy, things can’t get any more unreal. I then wake, which in itself is good, to a new day, browse the news and end up shaking ma heed at yet more lunacy.

Wot got me a-shaking in wonderment today? It seems a vegan – I say again a vegan, that’s one vegan, not the whole tribe nor even the chief but just one ordinary{?} vegan, has taken offence to a nursery rhyme tune being chimed - that’s chimed so obviously sans vocals. The so sad kicker is that the one lone vegan voice has won...

From the link to Westmonster below, follow the link therein to the main article a taster of which is this:

“A town mayor granted relief to a local vegan woman who was offended by the lyrics of a nursery rhyme played multiple times a day. The fact the version of the song contained no vocals was no consolation.”

The Westmonster piece ends with this paragraph:

“The slow deterioration of normality in Western society ebbs away as the perpetually offended continue their clamp down on any semblance of normality.”

To end on a lighter note, I honestly can’t stand any and all TV cooking programs. There is, however, just the one show that shines through for me. You watched it? You Gotta Eat Here. Oh the dribbly joy of ‘normal’, heart stopping food!

“Some people take offense like it's a limited time offer.”

“Those who are determined to be ‘offended’ will discover a provocation somewhere. We cannot possibly adjust enough to please the fanatics, and it is degrading to make the attempt.”

This little piggy went to market
This little piggy stayed at home
This little piggy ate roast beef
This little piggy ate none
And this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home

And this little ditty has been entertaining my kids, grand kids nephews and nieces for years!

Oh dear, now you’ve got me in trouble. Someone, somewhere will be complaining about the mention of pork even as I type. All I can do now is wait in fear for the four o’clock knock heralding the banning of this Blog...
Really, whatever happened to all the fun in the world? It’s a truly blue do.
