Political Correctness


I got some good response to my recent post about political correctness and dickheadedness and how somewhere along the way we lost our ability to laugh at ourselves and take even the tiniest adversity in our stride.

With that in mind, and as a sort of pre-emptive strike in the battle for common sense, here’s a funny gag I read somewhere. Please feel free to be offended. If I have left you out, my apologies.

How Moses got the Ten Commandments
God went to the Arabs and said, 'I have Commandments for you that will make your lives better.'


The Arabs asked, 'What are Commandments?'


And the Lord said, 'They are rules for living.'


'Can you give us an example?'


'Thou shall not kill.'


'Not kill? We're not interested.'


So He went to the Blacks and said, 'I have Commandments.'


The Blacks wanted an example, and the Lord said, 'Honour thy Father and Mother.'


‘Father? We don't know who our fathers are. We're not interested.'


Then He went to the Australians and said, 'I have Commandments.'


The Australians also wanted an example, and the Lord said 'Thou shall not steal.'


'Not steal? We're not interested.'


Then He went to the French and said, 'I have Commandments.'


The French too wanted an example and the Lord said, 'Thou shall not commit adultery.'


'Not commit adultery? We're not interested.'


Finally, He went to the Jews and said, 'I have Commandments.'


'Commandments?' They said, 'How much are they?'


'They're free.'


'We'll take 10.'

I hope I have covered most groups there. Please direct any complaints, threats, applications for Apprehended Violence Orders, civil rights and equal opportunity claims and sooky la-la comments to the following address;

Then he went to the United Kingdom, and they asked for an example.

You shall not covet your neighbour’s house and the Gypsies left
you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife out walked the English
or male or female slave was enough for the Scotts
or ox or donkey and the Welsh departed
or anything that belongs to your neighbour so the Northern Irish left too
