Funny Link

Not much here from me today. I’ve been doing things and being busy generally.

I did enjoy this link from the NewYorker though – it’s the politically correct version of Lord of the Flies, and it is brilliant.

“Look, everyone,” Ralph said. “The sun is going down. We need to organize a party to go out in search of food.”

“We should hunt!” Jack said. “Kill the pig! Cut her throat! Spill her blood!”

They looked at him.

“It’s not necessarily sexist if the pig represents oligarchical capitalism,” Jack added.

“It’s certainly insensitive to vegans.”

As a commentary on modern society’s requirement to tread the tightrope of avoiding giving offence, it’s absolutely perfect.
