What if?

This post is brought to you in response to the
politically correct movement and some of their recent


A friend sent an email about how these people were
upset over the names of some sports teams and would
like to see them changed.

So we decided to take it a step further. What if
this same bunch came after our car names? Think about
it a minute.

Look at the Dodge “Charger”. How long will it take
the PC crowd to realize that the name means a person
or thing that charges, a horse ridden into battle, and
someone who uses a charge card?

The commercials are all over the TV channels. Surely
in the interest of teaching our children to be non-
confrontational a line must be drawn in the sand and
the name changed. We suggest the Dodge Companion.

Or how about the Ford “Mustang”? That means a small
wild horse of the SW plains. Wild? Little? The PC
group could have a field day. If the name were
changed to the Ford Middle, nobody would be offended.

And what about Chevrolet? They have Super Sports,
and we all know super means greater or better than
others of its kind. Oh the humanity. The PC people
can’t have blatant boasting like that. Perhaps they
would demand the name be changed to Average Sport to
make all the underachievers feel better.

There are many more names that would be insulting to
one group or another but you get our drift. So we’ll
also mention automotive accessories.

Think about it. I’ll bet there are a whole bunch of
mad older ladies out there who don’t like the term
“air bag”. Shouldn’t the PC police demand the name be
officially changed to rapid-inflating safety device?

Of course the bumper would have to have a name
change. A device used to absorb the shock of a
collision or unusually abundant.

Same with headlights. As we know head means the part
of the body containing the brain, the top, the foam
on a glass of beer. a position of leadership or
honor, or a pot smoker.

We can laugh all we want now, but what if…
Comments are always welcome.

    Dale Gilmour,
    so true. But the politically correct bunch thinks we should carry the horses half the time too.

  3. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
    a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but
    I had to ask!

    We use standard WordPress templates that should still be available.
