    What a load of rubbish - two points here.

    Firstly, not all three pigs in the story build rubbish houses anyway, and secondly, give a real pig a pile of bricks and a bag of mortar and see how good a house he builds... So at worst it's portraying a pig's building skills accurately! :-)

    Yeah, and why use pigs in the story anyway? Far better to have kangaroos or something - at least they're quite dextrous with their upper limbs/arms...

    I mean they can box and stuff so why can't they build houses?

    (Is it obvious I've had a half day & spent the rest of it in the pub?)

    It's been done, read James Finn Garner's book Politically Correct Bedtimes Stories (http://tinyurl.com/33enog) - a very amusing take on the whole PC thing, including Little Red Riding Hood killing the Big Bad Wolf herself as an act against the stereotyped portrayal of women being helpless without men.

    It's called positive discrimination. It's also illegal.

    Maybe it's a ploy, a conspiracy that the government is working towards. Maybe they want us to rise up and overcome these times together..... Or maybe our government is clueless and cares more about looking good to the rest of the world.

    Does that mean I'm dead if we ever meet in real life?
