    There is an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

    This year's term was: "Political Correctness."

    The winner wrote:

    Quote:

    "Political Correctness: a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."


    Houston, I smell a solution.... :D

    Props to the winner for writing it and serious props to A&M for having the courage to select it as the winner. This is about as true a definition as I've ever seen and I agree that PC has really harmed this once great country...

    If it looks like bullsh!t, and smells like bullsh!t, then pick it up by the clean end, because it might be Daisies...

    That is excellent. Our system engineer sent me an email with that definition which I promptly printed out and hung on the wall next to my desk.
