Political Correctness

Yaxlich has just read an article on the Daily Mail website about the Christmas card being sent out by the Commission for Racial Equality. It seems that even they recognise the fact that political correctness has gone too far.

On the same website, Yaxlich saw that only 1 in 100 Christmas cards on sale in British shops feature the baby Jesus.

Maybe someone ought to nominate Christmas for the Insignificant Awards because that's the way it seems to be going. Yaxlich has lot's more to say but won't say it because the last time he got serious on his blog he got told off so instead of signing off with a well thought out political comment, he will complete this post by saying he read the original article earlier this morning whilst having a big poo.

Blogger Tish said ... (12:56 pm) : 

Christmas is portrayed around the world as snow and roaring fires, frost on the window and night time, rosy cheeks and mistletoe.

Tish doesnt't feel jandals and sunblock, insect repellant and sunhats, bbqs and the beach are particularly Christmassy or have a great deal to do with shepherds washing their sox at night while following yonder star. But it's a damn good excuse to eat far too much ham and pavlova, drink far too many cold beers and chat on the great white telephone far too many times.

Not that Tish ever gets pissed. She finally grew out of that when she was 38.

Ho Ho Ho

Oh, Yaxlich!

I am now conflicted. Yaxlich I like, but the Daily Mail? I have already sworn death upon all Daily Mail readers once the revolution comes and do not know if I can make an exception because it weakens the cause. Oh NO!


Blogger Sally Lomax said ... (1:24 pm) : 

I think it must be quite nice to have hot weather at Christmas for a change.

And although they wouldn't have needed protection from the sun in Belthlehem, I doubt also that they would have had much snow...... But the traditions are great. Let not change them. Thank God the CRE has some sence of humour!



Blogger Sally Lomax said ... (1:27 pm) : 

Looked here as if I was celebrating Christmas early, but wasn't drunk when wrote above - honest!

Should have read.........

"Let's not change them" and

"Thank God the CRE has some sense of humour!!"



Blogger Yaxlich said ... (1:28 pm) : 

Tish - Yaxlich has often wondered what Christmas cards were sent in places where it is hot for the festive season and now he knows. Pictures of shepherds in thongs cooking lamb kebabs on the barbie.

Anna - In Yaxlich's defence, Mr E is the Daily Mail reader in the flat. Yaxlich only ever reads it whilst doing a number two. Does this make it OK? Obviously Yaxlich would prefer it if you didn't kill Mr E but if you have to, can you do it a couple of days before the rent is due?


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (1:29 pm) : 

Sally - Yaxlich did think it was very funny that the CRE managed to poke fun at themselves. Perhaps they're starting to realise that they've taken things a little too far.


Blogger ZaPaper said ... (2:35 pm) : 

It's true--Yaxlich starting to talk about something serious is somehow out of character. Not knowing Yaxlich personally, I imagine him as a sort of cartoon character with a cartoon midas touch, so everything he touches becomes a cartoon too. But it's okay--cartoons are allowed to have opinions too.

Btw, in some particularly appropriate quirk of fate, my verification letters are: oayepu. I'm sure I don't have to tell Yaxlich that that is very obviously an alternate orthographic rendering of "oh, I poo!" or "oh, aye--poo." Have a good one.


Blogger Wendz said ... (2:49 pm) : 

Wendz thinks that only men can read while having a poo. Wendz likes to get in and out the poo place very very quickly.

As for Christmas...Wendz likes it even though she grew up in a sunny place and did indeed have many a barbie on Christmas day...swimming in her thong to cool down was de rigeur in that summer heat. Not that Wendz would wear a thong anymore - she is too old and gracious for such things.


Blogger simona said ... (3:24 pm) : 

Alcessa claims it's also ladies who read while having a poo. She does it herself, in fact. Which does not mean she will now proceed telling you about her farting habits, of course.

Oh, what a lovely word verification: ytlinnea


Anonymous Greenmantle said ... (7:02 pm) : 

Yaxlich reads the Daily mail website while on the loo?

Does Yaxlich have a laptop and wifi, or has he actually gone as far as installing a PC screen (no pun intended) on the stall door?

Even Greenmantle doesn't go that far!

For Wendz and Alcessa: Greenmantle was brought up in world where ladies don't poo and don't fart. It is one of the sacred myths. Like Father Christmas in fact: he hangs on to the belief in spite of all evidence to the contrary!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:18 pm) : 

Emily also disgarees with Wendz. Emily quite enjoys a good book whilst perched delicately and ladylike-ly upon the loo. Aids concentration.

Hello, by the way. Lovely blog.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:14 pm) : 

Anonymous Emily, stop pretending to be anon, you are not, you are Emily.


Anna, stop dissin Daily Mail readers.

Greenmantle, only THE QUEEN doesn't poo and fart. As I think Yaxlich has mentioned before she has someone to do that for her.

Yaxlich, sweetheart (ooooer) you are the most insignificant so you win. Yay.


Blogger Prometheus said ... (9:15 am) : 

And what about Santa? He is vertically-biaised. Does the toy factory have a permit? And Grinch. Why is he green? That's offensive to green men from Mars. Are ya saying all Martians are Grinches? And are ya sure that frankincense is FDA-approved? And why are all christmas trees the same? What about botanical diversity?

Sigh.. Merry Christmas.


Blogger Milk & Two Sugars said ... (11:55 am) : 

What a coincidence! MTS posted about Reading on the Loo whilst Doing a Number 2 just before she came here. She is pleased to hear that Alcessa is just like her.

She has never, ever resorted to reading The Sun (Daily Mail equivalent) though.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (12:38 pm) : 

Zapaper - Yaxlich does sometimes think about serious things but makes a conscious effort not to blog about them otherwise his blog would become as dull as the EU Referendum one. Vote JonnyB! Vote JonnyB!

Yaxlich loves your word verification, by the way, and is very envious that he didn't get it.

Wendz - Yaxlich is pleased that Wendz likes to get in and out of the toilet quickly. More time for Yaxlich.

Alcessa - YAY! Poo stories! Fart stories! Must tell!

Greenmantle - Yaxlich had the paper rather than the PC but he likes your thinking and when he's rich and famous he will do exactly that.

Anonymous Emily - hello and welcome to Yaxlich's blog. You can come back and play again.

Anonymous Anonymous - Yaxlich does so wish he knew who you are.

Prometheus - should you ever come to live in England, the CRE will welcome you with open arms.

MTS - Yaxlich is going to rush off to your blog to read your poo story. YAY! Everyone is blogging about poo. He is so excited :)


Anonymous Ignorminious said ... (2:51 pm) : 

Ignorminious thinks that reading the Daily Mail in the loo is very fitting. After all, what could make more sense than reading crap while taking a crap? Ignorminious wishes to point out however that he does not read the Daily Mail himself, as he prefers to read a newspaper.

That said it can be good for a laugh.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (3:09 pm) : 

Yaxlich thinks that newspapers will become a thing of the past. Why bother with newspapers when you can read stimulating political debate on websites such as the EU Referendum?



Blogger Prometheus said ... (5:56 am) : 

If the CRE has BBGs, Prometheus will forthwith and posthaste come over to Engelond.

And oh, the WV is jvysus. That could be Blogger saying Sweet 'Jesus'.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (11:56 am) : 

Yaxlich is envious of Prometheus getting such a festive WV. His was a very boring 'aatrox' which is clearly someone with a heavy Australian accent suggesting that they like paintings.
