To Be PC, They're "Spring Spheres" NOT Easter Eggs
1. When the teacher said, "Oh look, spring spheres," the third graders said "Wow, Easter eggs."
2. Matt Gurney writing in Canada's National Post: "For this crime of extreme political correctness, let us all hope the school officials responsible receive a lump of carbon-based fuel in the cloth tube-sack they hang next to their December Light-Festooned Interior Coniferous Vegetation this Winter Holiday." ("Notable and Quotable" in today's WSJ).
3. No response yet from the White House about whether Monday's event will be re-named the "2011 White House Spring Sphere Roll," or whether the official souvenirs featuring the signatures of President and Michelle Obama will be re-named "Official White House Spring Spheres" (see photo above).
What's next for political correctness re-naming, will "Frosty the Snowman" become "Frosty the Snow Friend"?
Update: To be scientifically accurate, I think the correct term would be "Spring Prolate Spheroids."
