Old McDonald, Had a Fatwah…E I E I Oh!

First they came for the Happy Meal toys…but, hey…I don’t live in San Francisco…

Now, in Great Britain, they have come for the toy pigs…from Glenn Beck’s the Blaze:

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/toy-pig-removed-from-uk-farm-playsets-to-avoid-religious-controversy/

The pig in the playset was considered, possibly, O-F-F-E-N-S-I-V-E, so, even though the toy base unit ‘oinks’ and even though there is a ‘pig pen’ the poricine figure itself was removed.

When and where (obviously NOT the UK) will the madness end?

With this logic the Three Little Pigs, well, they are history already (and besides the Fox is probably on an ‘endangered species list.”)  Will the Old Brown Cow now become the ‘Gravitas Bovine of Color?’  Euro kidlets probably are already told that the Old Woman in the Shoe had ‘so many children’ because she didn’t have access to Nationalized Health Care’s ‘Family Planning Services’  and I really don’t want to learn anything ‘new’ about Henny Penny and that ‘falling sky screed’ given the TSA’s ‘search policies.’

Hanzel and Gretel  couldn’t leave that trail of crumbs today  due to sugar and transfats; and Jack and Jill, well they better NOT be going up the hill for water in the California Imperial Valley.

Its enough to make the Golden Goose buy adtime on Glenn Beck’s show.

    This is so insane. Honestly, if they keep on like this and try to protect everyone from everything, we’ll be all stuck in hospital beds being fed w/iv drips and forced to exercise X number of hours per day. Liberal looniness must be stopped.

    I love how the article attempts to maneuver around the Muslim issue by stating that pork is considered unclean by Muslims AND Jews. Yes, that’s true, but I can’t in my wildest dreams (I’m Jewish) imagine that a Jewish parent would complain or be offended by a plastic pig in a child’s playset.

    Isn’t it interesting that to prevent a muslim parent or child from having to see a plastic pig toy the company made sure that none of us would see that pig.

    So we all don’t get a pig toy because muslims are SO sensitive. I guess it was just way out of bounds to suggest that a muslim parent could pick up the pig toy (using asbestos gloves perhaps) and put it into the trash. Perhaps that would defile their muslim trash too much.

    This is about sales, not religion. If the company thinks it will sell more farm toys without pigs, it will ditch the pigs. It even lowers the production costs — no plastic pigs to pay for. Just as Spanish is being eased into the American mainstream by businesses who care only for the latino market, muslim values are being eased into the mainstream by companies who only what to increase sales to muslims and avoid controversy at any cost.

    Shame on them for mentioning Jews. The Jewish people live the life that they believe God ordained for them. They do NOT go around trying to deprive others or force others to conform to their laws. They do NOT treat others as second-class humans, unlike a certain religion that began in the 7th century and stayed there.
