Baa Baa Oh shut up...

Okay, this is hilarious. Political Correctness Police in England are changing the words to 'Baa Baa Black Sheep'. They're going to make a bunch of confused little kids sing 'Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep'. I'm no music major, but that just doesn't fit.

And how long before somebody remembers that 'rainbow' is the colour used by most Gay groups? Which interpretation would be easier to explain to a bunch of 3-year-olds?

Black is a colour. A great colour. End of story. Black sheep are rarer than white, at least in my travels. We always thought it was cool to see one. We had a black sheep in our family (the two legged kind) but she's given up her rebel ways and is now as boring as the rest of us.

Sure, historically there have been negative, hurtful uses of the word black. But this nursery rhyme ain't one of them.
