PC Nursery Rhymes - Very Brokeback Mountain

In a move certain to please Ang Lee, children are being asked to replace the words to Baa Baa Black Sheep to a more PC version.

Baa Baa rainbow Sheep may not have the same ring to it, but it avoids offending the equal opportunities of sheep everywhere.

Stuart Chamberlain, manager of the Family Centre in Abingdon and the Sure Start centre in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire, told the local Courier Journal newspaper: “We have taken the equal opportunities approach to everything we do.

“This is fairly standard across nurseries. We are following stringent equal opportunities rules. No one should feel pointed out because of their race, gender or anything else.”
