  1. I'm surprised the term "snowflake" hasn't been banned because of its racist white connotations.

    I suppose the snowflake generation is too backed up with other things to be offended about.

  2. Bring back conscription and proper wars. Ban central heating, all coffee should be instant. Cafes should have steamy windows and only do fry-ups. Make the youth wear polyester and terylene from head to toe and sleep in it.
    Stop Ubers and make them travel on buses where people can smoke upstairs but everyone gets their secondary smoke. Rename Snikkers Marathon and make the bastards drink Whatneys red. Then they will see what mental scaring is!

  5. Using the term is most likely a hate crime though.

    Wolf whistling can now be reported as a hate crime

  6. Quite right although the smell of Charlie for want of a better word "perfume" has a better effect on me than viagra. It takes me back to a time when a two Chinzano girl was a dead cert.

    I noted a comment in a paper the other day, can't recall which, which recommended that men did not kiss under the mistletoe if they did not want charges if sexual harassment in twenty years time! Tongue in cheek but with a hint of fact.

  11. If snowflake is racist how about the term Susuwatari or "Soot Sprites"?

    That would keep the multi-culti types happy and the name seems quite appropriate as (according to to Wiki) "They make a squeaky murmuring sound when excited..."...

    If soot sprites is considered racist then I suggest we call them Marshmallows.

    These at least come in all colours (usually bland pastel colours) and marshmallow is a sugar-based confection that typically consists of sugar, water and gelatin which is whipped to a spongy consistency, molded into small cylindrical pieces, and coated with corn starch.

    Sugary, watery and and a spongy consistency... sound about right to me... ;-)
