Agreed, except for the "...washed down with a beer and coconut creame milkshake..."

I sincerely hope that is not in the same glass. :shock:

It reminds me of the aftermath of that Cronulla riot where people were being told not to fly the Australian flag at the Big Day Out & other public events because it was being used as a symbol Anglo-Saxon thugs.

The logic behind that is just plain stupid because it's the greater majority's refusal to use or associate with something that effectively turns it into a minority tribal political thing.

I can totally understand why someone would find a phrase like "fucking stupid dickhead Pom" offensive. I find it offensive & I'm not even English!

"Fucking stupid dickhead..." is offensive regardless of what name you attach to the end of it & therein is the problem but one that is too hard to address.

If, instead, all we take from it is the conclusion that the word "Pom" is offensive & should be added to an offensive politically incorrect database, would that stop ignorant idiots from that from saying it? All we'd be doing is empowering them further by making what they're saying even more offensive (& giving them a word that is exclusively for they're perverse, prejudice & ignorant use).

PS: Humpy, you don't like the sound of a beer milkshake? You're obviously not a Red Dwarf fan. :lol:
