Idiotic Euphemisms

Hat tip to Conservative Perspective:


"Spring spheres"? How ludicrous!

That idiotic terminology "spring spheres" is along the same lines as "winter trees" (instead of Christmas trees). I actually know a school principal who insisted that the trees on the hall bulletin board during the month of December be called "winter trees."

  1. The most ridiculous thing I've heard in awhile.

  2. Amazing isn't it, how anything related to Christianity, the true religion of peace, terrifies the pc-scum so much. I wonder if their nightmares involve Christ saving them, oh the horror!

  3. And the people who came up with this stupidity and too stupid to realize that eggs are not spheres, they are ovoids.

    No wonder our kids are not learning...

  5. Thanks for re-posting and the link!

    As to an example of a idiotic euphemism:

    Islam / "Religion of peace"

  6. Considering Christmas Trees are evergreens and thus are not remotely seasonal, your principal is a moron.

    Hmm, as far as other euphemisms, my favorite would of course be, "the religion of peace".

  10. Godless communists can call Easter Eggs anything they want. I simply do not understand why they have to force other people to adapt to their point of view ... and go out of their way to do so.

    Idiots.

  15. "Hey, look, kids! Spring spheres!"

    "Yay, Easter eggs!"

    Lol.

    Oh, and I guess the school doesn't know anything about geometry. Last time I checked, eggs were ovoid/ellipsoids. But I see we already have a few geometricians here. Haha.

  18. Well, I recognized the voice of the interviewer, so this would be in Western Washington (Seattle), where socialism is god. Sad, but true.

  19. What is happening to our country, when our traditions are being destroyed by the "Feel Good, Don't Offend" crowd? What a shame. When will we wake up, and dispose of "Political Correctness", because it destroying us as a nation.

  20. I have some very expensive "spring spheres" from Victoria's Secret, if you know what I mean. wink

    On the most basic level, linguistic fluency is foundational for all other learning. I suppose the children in this school will never progress to reading Goethe, Plato, etc. Dullards.... that is the teachers, of course.

  21. Tammy,
    I'm sure that Faust and The Republic will never be read by most teachers and students these days.

    Funny that you should mention the classics. As you were typing in your comment, I was trying to come up with a list of 10 must-read classics for this year's homeschool yearbook. Only 10! I had a terrible time limiting my answers to a mere 10!

  22. Old Rose,
    All this political correctness is such madness!

    If we don't get a grip and reject political correctness, we won't have much of a civilization in just a few years.

    People simply must grasp the concept that they don't have a RIGHT not to be offended.

  23. the level of stupidity from the left is astounding.

    and yes these folks are teaching our people. No wonder most of them are barely literate and lacking in anything resembling critical thinking skills while they praise themselves for their "knowledge".
