Default The Muppets? Offensive???

Friends have let me know that the Disney Channel has placed an “Offensive Warning” on the Muppet Show.

I found this hard to believe so checked it out - and yes. It’s true. This comes up:-

“This programme includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.”


A woke world gone totally barmy.

I did not find it offensive, just awful. I don't think I saw anything else but the trailers

There was a screen warning before a recent episode of Dads Army. "This programme contains singing some viewers may find offensive".What is more innocent than Dad's Army? I think we can safely say we have seen Blazing Saddles on TV for the last time!

My TV's equipped with the very latest extra special control .

It's called an "OFF" button .

If I come across something I don't want to watch I can, of my own free will, use the OFF button and that stops me watching it. I don't have to watch it. I can turn it OFF .

If other people want to watch whatever it was then that's up to them and their choice.

It gets better because as well as an OFF button there are other controls that allow me to choose different programs to watch. Ones that I might enjoy but, perhaps others might not.

SWMBO & StarTrek spring to mind .

Been waiting for ages for a chance to pour scorn on those revisionists with no name, those would-be prophets of impending doom with heads carefully below parapets and posteriors well covered. It's so hard to cover both ends at once you know. You need a swivel head as an absolute must.

They fester in their bachelor pads (non-gender specific and sole resident). They seek recognition in their self-imposed hell by scouring their myopic existence for even a crumb of recognition among a gullible hoped-for audience of like-minded loners to amplify their painful hurty-hurty bleatings.

They claim to spread salvation through evangelistic fervour but deliver conflict where there was none and war where there was considered judgement Ė thereby displaying their ignorance. They hope for a law of diminishing returns. So do we.

Thatís enough. For now.

I think Iíve managed to avoid offending anybody that matters, although that will possibly be offensive in itself.

Thatís the problem, we used to be able to laugh at ourselves and each other and get on with it, none of us took offence, I used to think something was wrong if someone didnít take the p on a daily basis.
