It is time to have little fun at the expense of Political correctness gone mad. Oxford University Press want to ban words that refer to PIGS and in America a business was bullied into taking down a sign that contained the word BACON.
Your Politically incorrect mission ( should you choose to accept it ) is to replace one word in a Movie title with the word BACON.
When an institution sets out to ban something, more often than not the thing they choose to ban simply reflects back on that institution’s way of thinking.
So what does it tell us about the Oxford University Press that they are banning authors from using words that refer to pigs?
Yes, you read that correctly. Oxford UP is prohibiting authors from using the words pig, pork, sausage, or other pig-related words because they are afraid of offending Jewish or Muslim readers who consider pigs and pork to be off-limits for religious reasons.
One could imagine that the scent and sound of crisp bacon waffling through Winooski Vermont, would perhaps send most Muslims into overdrive, but a sign with the word “Bacon”, to be precise “Yield Sneakers Bacon” apparently outraged a Muslim woman who took to an online community forum to complain about the sign.
