It’s official: Political correctness is destroying the world.
I really wish I knew what happened to England, but between the hippies, the political correctness, and the unspoken Muslim invasion, the country may never be the same again.
A British town is setting guidelines to ensure that new streets don’t wind up with names like Cockshut Road, the Daily Mail reports.
On Tuesday the Lewes District Council is expected to set a street naming and numbering policy to ban rude-sounding or unflattering names like Hoare Road and Cracknuts Lane.
Well, by that ambiguous standard, they can ban almost any name. They can certainly ban any name with “wood” in the title. Heh, heh, “wood.”
Other names deemed “aesthetically unsuitable” like Gaswork Road, Tip House and Coalpit Lane should also be avoided, the council said. Other banned names could be “capable of deliberate misinterpretation” like Hoare Road, Typple Avenue and Quare Street.
Oh, for God’s sake, get a grip, Lewes! Hell, some people’s interpretation of the town’s name would lead to its banning. “Yeah, I met this girl the other night. She was really ‘Lewes.’” And for that matter, we better change the names of Titson, England, Boysack, Scotland, and Mousehole, England. Morons.
“Street names which could give offence are not used, nor are names which encourage defacing name plates,” the council told the Daily Mail. (H/T - FOXNews)
Congratulations, Lewes. You have just usurped San Francisco for the title of “most idiotic town in the world.” I rarely - if ever - call for open revolt and revolution, but for the sake of the people of Lewes, England, I think this is the perfect time for a coup.
