    most common is along the lines of "so, do you ever invite someone in to watch?"

    at least these days it is "social" chat rather than the boss as work as it used to be.

    The German town of Limburg has stopped playing a children's folk song from its town hall bell tower after a complaint from a vegan.

    Usually, Fox, You Stole the Goose sounds out frequently on the carillon, a mechanical chiming instrument.

    Although the words are not used, a woman was upset by the song line "the hunter will get you with his gun", town spokesman Johannes Laubach said.

    But the mayor is facing a wave of anger over the decision, Der Spiegel reports.

    Marius Hahn agreed to remove the song from the bell tower's playlist temporarily as a gesture of kindness, the German newspaper reports.

    However, his administration's phone has been ringing constantly, it quotes Mr Laubach as saying, with people phoning to express anger over the decision - or over the time being devoted to the issue.

    The tower usually chimes out tunes from a list of 33 songs, including German children's songs, tunes from towns that Limburg is partnered with, and seasonal songs such as Silent Night, German media say.

    The vegan woman, who is said to work within earshot of the town hall, has not been named.

    For a complete marmalisation of the rationale behind political correctness, try this:



    Excerpted from Joe Rogan Experience #877. He's a pretty good speaker and it's generally hard to fault his well-informed reasoning. I enjoyed the slight mauling he gave 'social psychology' as well. If you have the time the full length version it's worth playing through.

    ... and if a stewardess came up to me on a plane and said "Are you Smith ?", I'd reply no, "I'm Mr. Smith" .. the last time I was addressed by my surname only was in the early 80's at school .. it's basic good manners after all ..

    If a stewardess came up to me on a plane and said "Are you Smith?", I'd reply "They're a great rock band - I particularly like Walk this Way".

    Recently got back from a wedding with a good number of old school mates in attendance. We're all pushing the big 4-O, but pretty much anyone not posessing a superior nickname was referred to by surname.
