    FFS look what happened when that teacher named a teddy bear!
  2. Oh for a minute I thought you were about to say "Niggers dead, Sir. Niggers dead"
  3. What has this got to do with Nigger?


    his owner Guy Gibson VC, DFC, DSO 1 bar?
  4. Guy Gibson never had Rhino did he?

    If he did, there'd never have been the cry "It's Nigger Sir, he's dead!"

    it'd be: "It's Nigger Sir, he's wrecked 3 trucks, 4 Lancasters and the Mess Anteroom, and he's sh@t all over the lawn, the road, the runway and assorted WAAFs"
  5. Very diplomatic, it could have beeen 'VIP Coon'
  6. He certainly is dead, here's his grave!

  7. the news story nothing, the thread title everything.

    What we need to establish here is:

    A: Has Fingers attached the wrong news article?
    B: Has Fingers labeled the thread incorrectly?
    C: This belongs in the ARRSEHole?
    D: Who cares it could be amusing!

    Bet they are glad they didn't have to bury the Rhino.
  9. Why would Kofi Annan be considered an offensive name if it were used for an animal in this country? Calling a baby giraffe at London Zoo Hubert Dangleberry-Cuntflaps would be much more offensive.

    I think it would be a great honour,


    Hubert Dangleberry-Cnutflaps III

    Guy Gibson's dog wasnt called Nigger, he was called Niger. Its a well known historical typo.

    Guy Gibson named his dog after a river in Africa. Because his curly tail reminded him of the map of the river Niger, OK?

    And not because the dog was black as the ace of spades.
  12. I find it highly offensive that they've called it Kofi when there are far more appropriate names out there

    Gordon, Prescott, Cheri...

    Isnt Kofi a kind of yoghurt found in the middle east?

    Jesus, if we werent all bending over backwards to appease our East facing bretheren we could have called the creature Muller Lite Strawberry. Which would have been much better.

    Who doesnt like strawberries?
  14. Wasn't there a couple of animals (can't remember type) in London Zoo called Charles & Diana? I wasn't offended until a French bloke asked if he could take the female one on a tour of the Paris Perifique in a Merc.
