…I don’t consider myself a douchebag for thinking “Baa Baa Black Sheep” shouldn’t have been altered for “political correctness”.
I agree- “Baa Baa Black Sheep” is sang as such because black wool was fairly rare and therefore a valuable item for trade in rural areas… changing it to “Baa Baa Fluffy Sheep” or “Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep” not only makes little sense in and of themselves but also in the wider context.
Even if you were to take “baa baa black sheep” as a racial reference, it is still intentionally celebrating the unique, rare and special quality of the black wool. Surely then it is a celebration of those qualities as opposed to making any kind of negative remark?
I’m not much of a fan of the show, but after watching the latest episode and being amused when “a billionaire with tons of gadgets” and “a wondrous woman who will throw (Clark) for a loop” was mentioned… I decided to look up the episode list/titles for the rest of the season.
It would seem that within the next SIX episodes, Clark should have donned the cape and tights… and one of those six episodes is called “Booster”… I can only assume that one of my favourite DC heroes may be making an appearance soon.
Hm, possibly #8 since I quite like his costume and I did at one point have hair like his (and still would if I cut it a little shorter).
