http://uk.news.yahoo.com/07032006/140/baa-nursery-rhyme-slaughtered.html The 'PC Brigade' have caused another storm by rewriting a favourite nursery rhyme. They have changed Baa Baa Black Sheep to - Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep. Several nurseries have changed the traditional rhyme so as not offend ethnic minorities, it has been reported. They say the words "black sheep" alienate and offend young black children. And that's not the only rhyme to get a 2006 makeover. Humpty Dumpty has a miraculous escape from impending disaster when he falls from his wall and stays in one piece. Teachers say they do not want children to be upset by the human egg's scrapes. The controversial changes, which have been seized on as political correctness gone mad, have been introduced by some nursery schools in Oxfordshire. Stuart Chamberlain, manager of the Family Centre in Abingdon and the Sure Start centre in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire, defended the move. He told the Courier Journal newspaper: "We have taken the equal opportunities approach to everything we do. This is fairly standard across nurseries." But parents are reported to be unhappy with the move. "Baa Baa Black Sheep is one of the most well-known nursery rhymes for generations," one parent told The Times. "For people to come and fiddle with it is ridiculous."
