Be Outraged, Be Offended Often, in Your Omniscience

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

Outraged and Offended


Just heard the song, 'Frosty the Snowman' over the radio, have you ever really paid attention? It is all about how a snowman, came to life one day, parading around; laughing and singing with the children and such.

This is beyond wrong, it is offensive!

It gives kids false hope and unrealistic expectations!

Shame on me for reading this story to my children and letting them watch the cartoon year after year.

I had not yet seen the light!

How can children hear such a song, then come to the realization that it cannot happen, a snowman cannot really come to life...and not be scarred for life?

People that use their imaginations and bring such things (like snowmen) to life, should be ashamed of themselves and they should be dealt with, accordingly!

While we are on the subject, Charles M. Schulz's creation, Snoopy, walks around and acts like a person, he thinks he is above it all…like a cat. He is not a person, he is a dog, but kids will see this and think that something must be wrong with their dog (therefore, with them) because their dog falls so short; it barks, chases after things, eats their shoes and is so very easily distracted by cats and the like.

They will begin to believe that they were intentionally given a dumb dog, because it is a reflection of them.

Right?

Where else would their minds go?

Something to think about people.

~~~

I completely agree with the, ‘Baby it's Cold Outside’ and ‘Kiss the Girl’, song controversies.

The guy (a man), should never remind the girl that it’s cold outside and suggest that she warm herself by the fire, for a little while longer. A true Gentle-man (oxymoron) would push her out into the cold rainy snow and if she catches pneumonia or slips on the ice and breaks her neck…so be it, he will be responsible, he will be found guilty and that’s what matters most, because it doesn't matter what he does, it's wrong!

That’s Life…can I say that? That was insensitive, because not everyone gets to experience life or ever even gets to be born for that matter.

I am so insensitive and I still have much to learn about being outraged and offended by all things, it's a process...

How about instead I say, that’s how the cookie crumbles? {I’m thinking, I’m thinking}, I think I can say that without offending anyone.

Any one?

Are you okay with this old expression?

It is so hard to consider a million P.C. things all at once and come up with the right words, phrases….oh how my head hurts right now!


As for ‘Kiss the Girl’, shame on all of the sea creatures for caring about the Little Mermaid and wanting her to be with the man of her dreams. (gag me with a spoon) That is none of their business and what’s wrong with the sea witch Ursala? Why are they discriminating against the Sea Witch, is it her size? Her complexion?

Why wouldn’t the little sea creatures encourage a relationship between the Little Mermaid and the Sea Witch?

Why must we assume she’d be more attracted to the handsome young Prince?

Are we to assume she’s shallow, simply because she is a mermaid? Hmmm?

Why is 'maid' even a part of her description?

Men!

When you can begin to break out of your common sense shell and really begin to stop minding your own business and start minding everyone else’s business and can start feeling offended about every little thing, you too can have a constant headache.

There is so much wrong in this world, especially in the United States of America, that can really set you off, anger you, when you look for it!

Why can’t we just enjoy Christmas without the mention of Baby Jesus, isn’t it supposed to be all about us and the gifts we are entitled to, even more of them in December, just because?

Who came up with the name CHRISTMAS anyway?

It is so long, I prefer when X marks that spot and plus it makes me feel better about myself.

I don’t have to consider a Creator, a Savior or any of that stuff that leaves me feeling as if there are things greater than me, myself and I.

Can we please petition Congress to change it to Xmas, then it can totally be all about us, as it should be?

Right, you know, right, I could so...run for the House of Representatives!

Which reminds me, we could start by petitioning the Dems, they feel the same as us, heck they invented it!

The Founding Fathers have their Title, the Left has theirs!

Doing for Others?

I was out to dinner the other night and saw three young U.S. Marines, all dressed up in their dress blues.

They had been out delivering toys for the ‘Toys for Tots’ program, before stopping to have dinner.

It got me to thinking I should be feeling offended by the whole spectacle of it all.

Were they trying to draw attention to themselves?

What other reason could they possibly have?

Were they really hungry?

What were their real motives?

Certainly, it is not about them doing for others, in this case, the children....and the same could be said about every other man or woman in a uniform, what is it with these people?

  • Out, unselfishly doing for others
  • Putting themselves in harm's way
  • Protecting this Nation; working to keep us safe, day and night

Yeah, right, who would ever put others...before themselves? That's just crazy!


Something else to think about people!

my-wish-for-you-to-be-offended-and-outragedand-often

Be a Kid? Dream Big? Bah Humbug

'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’, it matters not the message of the cartoon and the fact that his red nose saves Xmas, but the fact that he was made fun of early on, MUST be the focus and our one and only, main concern.

No one should have looked at him or talked to him, they should have pretended that he did not even exist. Maybe it would have been best, had he never been born (if only his Parents had known ahead of time, about that one day he'd be laughed at) The fact he saves Xmas is nothing and should not factor into any of this!

Rudolph would have felt so much better about himself, if he had only been ostracized, completely ignored, locked away...never born.

Don’t you agree?

Who comes up with this stuff anyway?

I am much better at it, but no one asked me first!

I know that, the man, Walt Disney, came up with some crazy ideas during his lifetime. By today’s standards, he’d be judged harshly for sharing his dreams with the world, for thinking outside of the box and for creatively coming up with stuff such as; bringing a mouse to life, really and seriously, a mouse!

He screwed up so many of us, generations of us in fact, we see a real mouse now and we are crushed! The nasty little nuisance rodents (that doesn't mean that they do not have the same rights as us, just so I am clear) but they are nothing like Mickey Mouse!

Disney did this to us...

Shame on him!

Shame on every person that has ever told us to dream big, follow our dreams, place the bar high, reach for the stars, be a difference maker in this world.

Bah-humbug!

When we can all start being critical of anything and everything and offended by anything and everything...

When we can all begin to pass judgement on everyone that thinks differently than we do, then we can really begin to be difference-makers.

We need for this to be a generic world, with everyone thinking just alike; no uniqueness, no creativity/imagination, no outside-the-box thinking and absolutely, positively...no individuality (what a selfish, selfish word)

The Founders, came up with that one.....

Men!

What would that world look like? Use your imagination!

It is about time; Elmer Fudd now has a scythe in lieu of a gun.

Everyone KNOWS you do not use a gun...for a rabbit hunt!(Well...they should know!!!)

Elmer will now have to work a little harder for his dinner, it will be good for him, he is much too pudgy already!

And just who does he think he is, wanting meat for dinner anyway?

Why wasn't this thought about long before 2020? Hmmm.....

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 16, 2018:

Thank you Tim.

This is just another way of me saying, "Enough!"

Nothing is sacred ...I suppose sacred is a bad word these days, but we will not succumb, we persevere! :)

Hi Shannon I can live with a daughter of Santa, just don't want anyone messing with Jolly ole St. Nick!

I appreciate all of you that take the time to comment on my articles, it means a lot!

If I do not chat with you again before the big day...

Merry Christmas!!!

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 16, 2018:

Well, she didn't write that. She shared it from a comment left on that news link I shared. She finds it quite ridiculous people are attacking Santa for being a man and that comment does indeed illustrate the ridiculousness of it all. So naturally, I shared your article with her.

On a side note, I did see a movie last year that featured a female Claus. She was the daughter of Santa, though, and had to take over the "family business." It wasn't bad, but it's always Mr. and Mrs. Claus to me.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on December 16, 2018:

I like it. I keep coming back, Abwilliams. Shannon:

Here's how that set up with the snowman should have looked:

Mygan K. with a colorful face for one woman; Richard Spencer holding hands with Minister Farkon and David Duke for another part of the display; Santa sliding across the yard on a colorful rainbow; and of course, Elton John as a snow person playing the piano. There, everybody's happily irritated and pleasantly offended.

Abwilliams, this is one of your best.

Keep me laughing and thinking in the new year.

Best Christmas wishes to you, Shannon, and everybody.

Much respect,

Tim

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 16, 2018:

Now Shannon, it matters not about the parts of the snowman, it's all about that word, again...MAN.

Oh and I should add, kudos to your sister-in-law for perfectly laying out the ridiculousness of the P.C. left.

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 15, 2018:

You're a lot nicer than I would be. I'd be polite until I rolled my eyes and walked off when I had enough. Probably temind her that "snowman" have no private parts anyhow so who cares? Maybe skip straight to the snowballs comment. ;)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 15, 2018:

I'd have to nip this in the bud right about 8:10 when the feminist passes by and sticks her nose where it doesn't belong.

She's not allowed in my head, it's occupied already. I'd kindly tell her to mind her own business and move along. Depending on the amount of snowfall, I'd immediately begin working to create as many snowmen, as I could possibly create, so she'd never bother me again.

The End :)

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 15, 2018:

OKay......So my husband's little sister posted this link and then she posted a comment from the link that I thought you'd all appreciate here.

Some people think Santa should be gender neutral.

http://www.fox26houston.com/news/santa-should-be-f...

Copied from a comment on the original post:

It Snowed Last Night..

8:00 am: I made a snowman.

8:10 - A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman.

8:15 - So, I made a snow woman.

8:17 - My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere.

8:20 - The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead.

8:22 - The transgender man..women...person asked why I didn't just make one snow person with detachable parts.

8:25 - The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with.

8:28 - I was being called a racist because the snow couple is white.

8:30 - I used food coloring to make one of the snow couple a different color and be more racially inclusive.

8:37 - Accused of using black face on the snowman...snowpersons.

8:39 - The middle eastern gent across the road demanded the snow woman be covered up .

8:40 - The police arrived saying someone had been offended.

8:42 - The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needed to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role.

8:43 - The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction.

8:45 - TV news crew from ABC showed up. I was asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I replied "Snowballs" and am now called a sexist.

9:00 - I was on the news as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe, and sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather.

9:10 - I was asked if I have any accomplices. My children were taken by social services.

9:29 - Far left protesters offended by everything marched down the street demanding for me to be arrested.

9:45 - The boss called and fired me because of the negative association with work that had been all over social media.

10:00 - I cry into my drink because all I wanted to do was build a snowman...

Moral: There is no moral to this story. It is what this world has become because of a bunch of snowflakes. Lol

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 10, 2018:

You are right, great points all! They should ban ALL versions and just be done with it!

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 10, 2018:

Oh. But that offended my ears. And my good senses. What if the Uber driver is a rapist? Or what if she catches pneumonia and dies? ;)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 10, 2018:

Right? I said it was less offensive, not Grammy worthy.

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 10, 2018:

I much prefer the original, thank you! That was horrible. LOL.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 10, 2018:

A less offensive, p.c. appropriate version of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’.....LOL

Alrighty then, stop singing already and go on outside! https://www.facebook.com/1447148065524466/posts/22...

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 09, 2018:

Enjoy the snow....and snowball fight, I hope that your wife takes it easy on you!

I just talked to my Dad in upstate South Carolina, it is snowing there right now too. Jealous!!!

I think we've all made many valid points....in very entertaining and amusing ways, in the case against political correctness, finding offense in all the wrong places and the silliness and absudity of the out of control, over-the-top, artificial outrage and antics of snowflakes.

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Goodnight!

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on December 09, 2018:

Hi, Abwilliams,

Don't you know that Tom and Jerry have become Tommi and Jerri? Superman no longer fights for truth, justice, and the American way. They got rid of the American way. (Wasn't that guy brought up in Midwestern America?) Yes, but go, go globalist Power Rangers!

By the way, Arnie and Bert are lovers. But no problems with a pig and frog union.

Attack all of them!

Good grief!

Clark Kent came from another planet, but I think it was more like America.

These guys come from the lunatic galaxy.

Merry Christmas!

We have six inches of snow outside, Abwilliams.

I'm going to go have a snowball fight with my wife.

(Is that domestic violence. She always wins. (lol).

Merry Christmas again.

Much respect,

Tim

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 09, 2018:

Oh no! Please excuse me, y'all. I also forgot to say Xmas instead.

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 09, 2018:

She watches too many reality shows about flipping houses. Haha. His task looked like more fun than scraping tile off a floor. She said the next day, "That was fun, but my ass is sore." I can imagine. The "floor" she landed on was nothing but the concrete slab at that point.

Hopefully, things will slow down around here with other job related things enough to finish bthe remodel before Christmas. If it does, you can bet your article here that I WILL buy myself a Christmas gift. ;)

Elmer Fudd. He has to be the worst. He tries to kill Bugs and Daffy both. Well, then again, Wile E. Coyote ....kids might think it's okay to drop an anvil on someone's head. We can't have that!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 09, 2018:

Oh and Eric... those women sashaying around in their ‘special’ hats and clothing, encouraging the destruction of babes in the womb, is innocent stuff Buddy....there are much bigger fish to fry; cartoons, Disney movies, Christmas songs and movies (oops Xmas) for starters.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 09, 2018:

Shannon, that is a funny story, as long as she was okay. I am secure enough in my womanhood to know when to let my hubby do the heavy lifting!

But, my real concern right now... is knowing that you allow your kids to watch Tom and Jerry. If there was ever a more violent cartoon in history (with the exception of Wile E.Coyote and the Road Runner, oh and Tweety Bird...Bugs Bunny.... don’t know what it’d be)

I used to laugh hard at that stuff....until I saw the light.

I hope that I have not flagged all of us, with the writing of this article. Who am I kidding. I was flagged long ago! LOL

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on December 09, 2018:

Ms. Williams I am so glad this article has legs. So good for us to think about. OTOH, how rude you make me think instead of wearing my genital hat.

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 09, 2018:

Oh dear, my son is watching Tom and Jerry. I'm so offended! I can't begin to count the ways just this one episode is so unbelievably non-realistic. And wrong on so many levels.

Actually, it does remind me of a real life funny tale. You may have had to have been there to find it funny, though. A week or two ago my husband and I hired a woman I worked with elsewhere to help with a total home remodel. One of the tasks on one of the days she helped was to start tearing out a wall. My husband was yanking sheet rock off the studs with some effort. My friend decided she wanted to do that to, just the way he was. Problem was, she's something like 4 foot and something tall. I'm 5'4" and she's shorter than me. Rather petite and in her 50s. But she grabbed hold of a piece that wouldn't break off so she adjusted her grip and pulled as hard as she could. One minute she was flat on her feet and the next she was flat on her back several feet away from the wall, bouncing on her butt first. I watched her feet fly up toward her head as she flew backwards. Think of the cartoons or movies when someone gets electrocuted.

My first thought was, of course, is she okay? When it was obvious she was I busted out laughing and could not stop. I'm so mean! At least she thought my laughter was funny.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 09, 2018:

We'll never really know....there's no telling, how many kids (and adults) have been permanently scarred by the likes of Rudolph, Huck Finn, Frosty, the Little Mermaid.....

I'll not go on... I know I will only be stirring up a hornet's nest of horrific memories. I hope that you have received a lifetime of therapy due to your exposure to the abominable snowman. Paid for, by the Government, naturally!

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 08, 2018:

Of course it's our duty! Those sad misfits are just too depressing. And while I'm at it, that abominable snowman gives me nightmares.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 08, 2018:

Thank you Shannon for bringing Nell up to speed on the inappropriateness of Rudolph. We must spread the word near and far...it's our duty!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 08, 2018:

Tim, I had not heard about the defenders of Satan, I guess they want him to be seen as softer and gentler... in his old age? Crazy!

To answer your question, no, I only write for ya'll, but thank you for the compliment.

Merry Christmas Tim!!!

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 08, 2018:

Oh, Nell, you poor thing. No one told you yet that Rudolph's daddy was emotionally abusive and the relentless reindeer bullies...Well, all of that scars children for life. It couldn't possibly be a story about why one shouldn't bully. You know, because the one you bully could end up saving the day. And a lesson on how to celebrate your differences...your uniqueness. No, this is not an appropriate lesson for children.

Nell Rose from England on December 08, 2018:

Rudolph? What happened to Rudolph?

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on December 08, 2018:

Yes, I recently saw that Satan worshipers were suing Hollywood film makers for making Satan "too bad." Now, we know life is going to the bats when Satan has his day in the courts. (Will they put their hands on the Bible and swear to tell the truth?)

Now, I'm just offended that everybody is not offended enough. Or maybe they are!

Abwilliams, you have a beautiful way with satire.

Are you sure you haven't written for British sitcoms? You are just that creative. (That's a compliment. Please, don't be offended. Third reading. Top notch stuff here)

Merry Christmas again, and maybe I'll be back to write it one more time.

(Hey, we can tell Satan to sue me for that.)

Sincerely,

Tim

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 08, 2018:

Sadly, Florida, Georgia and Texas are all being targeted by the lost, liberal, leftist socialists. Texas is safe today, but watch out, they are coming for ya'll!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 08, 2018:

We understand that it takes a lot of energy keeping up with us young folk Paula! Go....rest! ;)

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 08, 2018:

The headline reads something like "Man Arrested for Telling Kids Santa Isn't Real" and it made me think of this hub. Of course there's more to it than the title and his actual reason for arrest is pretty much for being a nuisance, but yeah, he was protesting.

Ugh, another blot on my home state. Makes me glad I'm in the south where nativity scenes are not that uncommon and Christ isn't all the way out of the schools yet.

Suzie from Carson City on December 08, 2018:

(OK.....I give. I'm laughing so hard, I've lost my breath. That "SOME" people being retired, did me in. Do I now need to apologize for being OLDER than dirt???...LOL)

I have to leave all this fun.....I hope that offends you!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 08, 2018:

Protesting Santa, this is what it has come to? Good grief Charlie Brown!

I saw where Satan has taken center stage in front of the Illinois Capitol Building (for the Christmas season) now that should really offend everyone.!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 08, 2018:

...and I am offended that I am not retired like SOME people writing for HP. It really is not fair that I have to work and have 'one of those days'...still, at my age, about once a week!

I am looking forward to the day when I can wake up and roll over to go back to sleep, if I so choose or write whenever I feel moved or volunteer more often, travel a lot more, see my grandbabies more.....

I am not resentful, really, I'm not...it's okay really, I'm not mad.....

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 08, 2018:

Oh, I take the cake? Gosh, at least my reasons for no Santa were about focusing on the meaning of Christmas from a Christmas perspective. And my husband asked not to do Santa (probably the result of an experience in the foster system) and I agreed for him....But check out this guy. Better watch out indeed! People are protesting Santa now.

https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Man-Arrested-in-...

Suzie from Carson City on December 08, 2018:

OMG....It is so offensive that you would squeeze responses for 3 people into one comment block. Like, your time is more valuable than ours? I see.

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 08, 2018:

I love this time of year. Just had my son's Christmas concert recently. The last group that played did "Baby It's Cold Outside" and a reading of "The Night Before Christmas" that was cute. Apparently, leggings is the big controversy around here.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 08, 2018:

Hi Tim, I am glad that you shared this with your wife, she makes a great point about Santa having a global work passport, making him globally appealing and legit! :) Of course, you always make great points.

It has gotten so crazy, it's almost impossible to ignore or dismiss it all....pretty sure that's part of the reason why it has gotten so out of control to start with! Offense is taken in so many things, in particular, traditional things, due to a lack of taking part in traditions or in making new traditions. So this 'p.c. thing' has become all things to the offended, it's the replacement to fill that void.

Personally, I am enjoying this time of year with family and friends, hearing Merry Christmas more than I have for many years and it warms my heart. People seem to be much happier and friendlier, when I am out and about.

To me, as a Believer, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on December 08, 2018:

Hi, Abwilliams,

I returned again, sharing this one with my wife. We laughed and thought the satire is so funny. Don't we have real problems in this world?

Oh, by the way, that candy cane thing may offend those people who hate a little sugar. (You're promoting obesity in youth, Abwilliams. Shame on you! (lol).

It's crazy; you were right to bring this out. Many people don't want to think about how outrageous we have become because of one group dominated the conversation.

I'm going to enjoy this holiday and all of the "right-wing" stuff associated with it.

I think that's the way He meant for it to be.

Thanks for always looking at things in entirety,

Abwilliams, That's why I keep reading your articles.

One other thing, my wife pointed out that Santa has a global work passport, so he's o.k.

peaceful Yuletide blessings,

God bless you.

Much respect,

Tim

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 07, 2018:

Tim, I have a feeling you could have gone on for a few paragraphs more. There is so much to take offense in.....if one chooses to!

Merry CHRISTmas to you my friend!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 07, 2018:

I agree Shannon, who knew there was so much entertainment to be had in the offense industry?

Tim Truzy from U.S.A. on December 07, 2018:

Hi, Abwilliams,

I'm beyond offended. How dare they create a phony man that breaks into people's homes and leave gifts? More importantly, shouldn't he be deported, I mean, he's crossing our borders illegally? (lol)

And what about that babe in a manger? Call child protective services. This encourages people to leave their child anywhere.

Flying reindeer? A dancing snowman? Who gave people the right to use their imaginations to celebrate one of the most blessed holidays on God's Earth? (Sorry, I used that G-- word.)

And while we are at it, why are we promoting murder? Should that witch in the Wizard of Oz not have been totally abused by the girl? Remove it all. Respect for elders. (OMG!)

Hey, Snoopy could fly his dog house to the House and/or Senate and maybe become a Represenative or Senator. He did take on the Red Baron. He's a true war hero. (Oops! I'm indoctrinated by the Right. I'm bad.)

Abwilliams, you kept me laughing and smiling all the way through this one. Lively comments, funny write up, and common sense in your satire.

Much respect and blessed Holiday,

(Not Happening; I know what I should really say. And I'm glad to write which come next.)

Merry Christmas, my friend,

Tim

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 07, 2018:

Oh, go cuddle with your blankie in a corner. Should I send a puppy, too?

Bahaha. I hadn't thought of Trump exactly, but I'm sure I know plenty who would lump him in. I mean, he does have an insensitive side.

Actually, now I'm really offended. Because this fat lady is indeed singing...along to my radio in the car. Who's insensitive now?

Why wrap up the fun? Where else can we so openly express all of our offenses?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 07, 2018:

I remembered "the Nazis" reference, I just thought that you felt the need to lump someone else in with the Nazis...like Trump, perhaps!

Now you are trying to tell me that Santa isn't real, you take the cake....{thinking, thinking} Shannon, you are the most insensitive of all, in my offended state of being...I'll now require cuddle time tonight with my blankie.

Too much? Over the top? Should we wrap this up?

Is the fat lady singing yet?

{Gasp}.....I'm hopeless!

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 07, 2018:

The Nazis breate air, of course, remember?

No worries about biting. I bite back.

Oh, and since we're on the subject of being offended, I am offended that you think it's wrong not to teach kids that Santa is real. Because my kids grew up knowing Santa wasn't real! ( Not really offended, but you should see the offense others took when my kids were younger and telling adults who asked that Santa isn't real. That was sometimes quite amusing...and we did have to have a few conversations about not arguing with other kids about it because that, of course really offended parents.)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 07, 2018:

That is disgusting Eric, you should be ashamed of yourself, maybe you can just call them pork rinds from here on out, now that is one great snack....um, so I've heard, I wouldn't know, how would I?

I'll bite Shannon (not literally, you are not in danger of being bitten, not by me, I'd not harm a fly...flies have rights, just as rodents do) Anyway, I digress...Who else breathes the air?

I'm insensitive Miss Paula, you just shared Rudolph's deep, dark secret with the entire world {I flatter myself, you just shared Rudolph's deep, dark secret with, like, four people}

I just knew the cookie crumble's comment would come back to haunt me. I am a work, in progress...

aHEM!! Scuse me Miss Angie....but as long as you ask, YES, I am offended by your nasty expression of "the cookie crumbles." I know damned well that was a reference to my baking abilities and I do not appreciate it. I'll have you know my cookies are world-famous and they do not "crumble," even when dunked in coffee! How insensitive of you.

Also...while I'm at it....you should know enough that children need to GROW UP and stop acting like a bunch of kids! They need to be told the truth about Rudolph. His nose is red because he's a falling down drunk. That's right, kids....Rudolph leads Santa's sleigh UNDER THE INFLUENCE. We should stop offending the intelligence of 2 year olds and just be brutally honest with them.

I have nothing more to add. Oh wait...just so you know, you can forget about receiving any Christmas cookies from me..!!

I'm with Eric about the comments here. I can't believe poor Rudolph is under attack. Hasn't he been bullied enough by the other reindeer?

You know who else breathes air?

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on December 07, 2018:

Ms. A B Williams I will follow this and marvel at the wonderful comments. I just had a disgusting PC moment. I realized I was calling pork "pig". How wrong to porks everywhere.

Leave it to you Nell to pick on the most innocent of people and music.

Have you always been this insensitive? :)

It is beyond ridiculous what passes as perfectly acceptable and what is singled out to be destroyed.

The scary part is that they (the snowflakes) have had many successes! Books have been banned from many of our schools (if not all), including the 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' and 'To Kill a Mockingbird'.

Many radio stations are no longer playing 'Baby it's Cold Outside', not sure what will happen to poor little Rudolph.

I can hear you applauding, can you see my eyes rolling?

Nell Rose from England on December 07, 2018:

LOL! cna you hear me applauding? how people can pull apart a song that was around 50 years ago is beyond me! what next? pick on genghis Khan for having a thousand wives and treating them wrong? well wipe it out from History! and while we are on the subject, perhaps getting rid of rap music, I add the word music just to explain....

with its guns, knives, rape, bitch and the n word! perhaps snowflakes should be attacking that first.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 07, 2018:

It is funny. I think my favorite part is when the producer loses it...because it had to be so hard for them to keep a straight face, with such over-the-top nonsense.

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 07, 2018:

What? How could you possibly take offense to my thoughtful gesture. I'm offended that your offended!! And how dare you suggest that I selfishly buy something for myself. I'm offended that you suggest we should all be blind sheep following that trend....Did I mention my cousin is a cow? ( I think that was the funniest part of the video to me because she said it with such seriousness.)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 07, 2018:

Oh shoot, wait, what am I saying....I am deeply offended by that video Shannon! ;)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 06, 2018:

Shannon, I was amused by that. So funny, I will be sharing it on FB.

It may offend someone, but I just don't care.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on December 06, 2018:

Yes, thanks for sharing Eric, that does lift my spirits and I love that you let your son play in the rain.

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 06, 2018:

No shopping for me in a hardware store. LOL.

Thought this might amuse you:

So true, "and then suddenly one day we were offended by everything for no real reason", I'd leave it up too!

While waiting, you could always do some xmas shopping...for yourself, of course! ;)

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on December 06, 2018:

Son of a God d..... bitch we are flourishing. We will not let down our guard. Vigilance is a mantra.

Just something that hope lifts your spirits. I picked my boy up early yesterday so he could play in the rain. They were reading a Christian story to the kids. The day before they had Christ Mass music on. And this is public federal and state funded stuff. Probably just our school which is rated in the top ten public schools in the nation.

Isn't that just crazy these days?

Shannon Henry from Texas on December 06, 2018:

Oh, get out of my head! Seriously, you just cracked me up. I'm in public and don't usually stare at my phone while out and about, but bored waiting at the store on my husband to find something I know nothing about for a job. Anyway, my son hacked my FB last night....rather I left it logged in. He posted a meme that saif, "And suddenly one day we were offended by everything for no real reason" or something like that. He thought I'd take it down, but it's too true so I left it up. Are you trolling me? I'm so offended by that!
