The concept of political correctness is something that should be used in moderation, but these days people are so worried about saying the wrong things or offending people they think PC is the only way to go.
However, the old expression “you can't please everyone” rings true (despite what the PC police say), so trying to be PC by turning Dennis the Menace into a polite young man is a plan destined for failure.
It's even more ridiculous to ban the Punch & Judy puppet show because it contains an "abusive relationship" and "inappropriate hitting"...
Yeah, we know, Punch & Judy have been beating up on each other for at least 350 years. Leave those puppets alone PC police!
But when the PC conformists set their minds to doing something stupid they do it, like changing the term “brainstorming” to “thought showers” so as not to offend epileptics, or calling a Spotted Dick a Spotted Richard to stop the lewd jokes. What a bunch of Richards!
