Nursery Rhymes Politically Incorrect

Children at some nursery schools in England are no longer singing "Baa, baa, black sheep," as the words don't fit the schools' "equal opportunities rules."

The children now sing "Baa, baa, rainbow sheep."

The reference to "7 Dwarves" has been deleted from "Snow White," and the ending of Humpty Dumpty was changed so that children wouldn't be upset.

This is so absurd it sounds like something from The Onion. What a great example of political correctness run amok.
