Out of the mouths of babes

According to the Torygraph, a 366 page guide (How many pages?) from the NCB has these observations for carers of toddlers....

"Toddlers who turn their noses up at spicy food from overseas could be branded racists by a Government-sponsored agency.

The National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.

This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food."

Hat Tip to First In for highlighting this bit of PC nonsense, although apparently it is only an ENGLISH problem.

What a pizza nonsense. Now I'm not one to curry favour with the non-diverse elements in our populous, but this sort of tripe is fodder to them. (I'll get my reflective jacket...)

Psalms 8:2
: Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou might still the enemy and the avenger.

Matthew 21:16:
And said unto him, Hear thou what these say? And Jesus said unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

p.s. I suspect the photo's unintentional undertones, on so many levels, will offend or appal someone, somewhere, but it's cute!

What a bunch of nonsense.

Gee, do you think maybe little kids just don't like spicy food?

This really annoyed me. I hate political correctness - I consider it to be one of the greatest social evils we have to contend with today.

Don't get me started on the Angel's Food/Devil's Food cake stupidity! You'd think they'd at least have the sense to look up the origins of the terms they're trying to ban ... or maybe good/evil is on the list of no-nos now, too?
