swine-flu[1]

Q - The word police have come out with their annual list of the most politically incorrect words of the year. This topped the list for 2009. What is it? *hint* it's actually 2 words.

A- Swine Flu

What? Are they afraid they'll offend the pigs or something?

Here are a few others from the Global Language Monitor’s list of the top “politically (in)correct” words of 2009

“Minority.” Talking about minorities is considered insensitive to minorities since this can make them feel like minorities.

“Saint.” I don't get what is wrong with this one....isn't "Saint" a nice thing?

“Politically Correct.” The term itself can now be considered politically incorrect. Yeah, I don't get this one either.

“Founding Fathers.” Though the Declaration Of Independence was signed by men, this country was founded by some pretty amazing women as well!

“Senior Citizen,” which Loughborough University suggests replacing with “older person.”
