I heard on the radio this woman was offended by the school having gingerbread "men". She said it is not "politically correct". The school decided to call them "gingerbread people". Anyone offended by this?

  • Well I sure don't want my kids to see two gingerbread men holding hands---goodness goodness goodness--OR TWO GINGERBREAD WOMEN--OH MY. AND they should not be naked we need to wrap them up or something.... oh oh oh frosting clothes, but no frosting dresses for the women that is sexiest too-we better just make round cookies this year-no square--not square someone might poke their eye out- circle, nice round-no sharp edges circle-, but we better not call them ginger cookies because people might think they are healthy( ginger ya know) and sue us when the cookies make them fat.. No we just better forget all the good things about the christmas season, opps I ment hoilday, no cookies(fat ya know and no one can eat anything homemade, I might kill someone) no lights(seizures/global warming) or trees or figurines or cards( i might forget someone) or sleding(those damn death panels on the new health care plan I am not taking any chances

  • That is too funny, really who cares if they are gingerbread men, thats what they have always been called. Im sick of everyone having to be politicaly correct about everything.

  • Oh for crying out loud. There are much bigger issues to worry about.
