Tell that to the CFL team in Edmonton.
Don’t try singing We Wish You a Merry Christmas as he’ll probably attack you for wishing a merry Christmas instead of an all inclusive holiday greeting.
And doesn’t this guy know that Eskimo covers the Inuit, Inupiat, and Yupik. The term refers to indigenous peoples of the polar regions in Siberia, Canada, and Alaska, not specifically to one group.
What will be the next “politically correct” Christmas song? “Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht”?
Can’t sing about Rudolph, you’ll have the anti-bullying and body shaming groups picketing; no decking the halls, or you’ll get the LGBT after you for gay apparel; no more Winter Wonderland as some people don’t feel the need to be married; can’t call for the Little Drummer Boy, body shaming and equal gender rights groups will protest.
Why can’t we all agree and wish each other peace on (and above) Earth and goodwill to all man and animal kind. And enjoy all of the movies and songs of yore, no matter if it is not 2018 politically correct.
If Pig is beat up now, wait till he goes shopping!
Ooooh! Right in the Oompa-loompas.
I believe some people don’t like to hear the old favorites
It’s ever so nice to see how tolerant the left is…
Inuits roasting on an open fire doesn’t have the same imagery as chestnuts.
The guys booting of Swine spells the word Inuit as “in nut”
Holy female bovine revered by Hindus! That must hurt!
Same as yesterday “Rat” bat that blond haired freak !
The word “eskimos” doesn’t refer to Inuits specifically, though. It’s a collective word for Inuits, Yupiks and a few other people. Telling people “Say ‘Inuit,’ not ’eskimo” is like saying that everyone previously called “American Indian” is now to be called “Apache.”
I say if people want to be offended, let them be all Grinchy all they want. The world doesn’t revolve around whiners like this guy who thinks it should cater to their paper-thin feelings. If it’s a problem, take it out on your therapist not the world around you. (Had to deal with a neighbor yesterday who was a total grouch about political correctness acting like his way was the only right way. Still fuming.)
That Jack Frost character was outed by the Me Too Movement.
What a violent snowflake!
This thin skinned outrage guy reminds me of a thin skinned outrage troll on the comment boards. He’s so outraged he wants everyone who has an opinion contrary to his own, or those who say something he likes not, to be silenced.
Just wait till Pig sings “Baby it’s cold outside”.
Look, if we’re going to start killing innocent holiday songs, can we start with “Every kiss begins with Kay”?
And you say there’s no ‘war on Christmas’!
Telling someone that you’re dreaming of a white Christmas can get you clobbered, too.
This is both funny and sad!
Just wait until they take on Deck the Halls…and don we now our gay apparel.
To rhyme with “Inuit” Jack Frost could be nipping at the slang term for a woman’s chest!
Peace on Earth is hard to come by these days, Pig.
Stephan, I love you! You make my day.
I knew it!
Pastis – you’re messing with us again…
“…and folks dressed up like indigenous peoples of the polar regions.” Yeah, that’s smooth.
next they will go after “Baby It’s cold outside”……oh wait……never mind :(
Oooo … Looks like Pig got kicked right in his chestnuts!
I appreciate Pearls taking on the ridiculous PC objections to everything. It’s our obligation to push back.Merry Christmas everyone.
When will all this ridiculousness pass??
I will have Nunavut, I just don’t like word play.
I don’t recall anyone talking trash on Mel Torme when he wrote ‘The Christmas Song’ (Chestnuts roasting…..etc.)I’d love to hear Stan Freeburg’s take on “Commercializing Christmas”. And if these songs are so terrible then Why do radio stations play them 24/7 from after Thanksgiving until Christmas Day? Plus if you don’t like them, there’s a small device on said radio called an OFF SWITCH.
The next comic should be a Yup’ik clobbering Politically Correct Guy for calling him an Inuit. That’s like calling a Frenchman “German”.
I think the words are garbled a bit, isn’t the line “Chipmunks roasting on an open fire” etc.?
They better NOT ask you to leave the comics page. First one I read every day
Pig’s line in the last panel reminds me of Linus’ “Christmas is not only getting too commercial, it’s getting too dangerous”.
Hey, Pig, whatchu mean by that “nipping at your nose” comment?
If it ain’t PC, it ain’t funny.
Aw, heck with it! There’s a lot of touchy, too easily triggered, people of all persuasions these days. So I just say, “Merry Saturnalia and a Happy Winter Solstice!” What’s wrong with that?
Is there a war on Christmas, or is Christmas warring with us?
Speaking of “chestnuts”, that is where Pig’s are after that kick.
Ah, the tolerant left….
did pig just get kicked in the jewels?!
Too violent for Comic Strip Censor Guy? Cartoon-Boy lets the PC guy wail on Pig, while Rat gets off free? Shame!
Sic guard duck on the idiot.
Or dressed up like a certain football team. Although linebackers singing carols on my doorstep is disturbing.
A friend is Inuk, a Member of the Order Of Canada, told me Inuit means the people, according to him, people not just specific First Nations folks.
Someone is very misinformed.
Baby, it’s cold outside.
Actually, there are multiple native tribes in Alaska and Inuit is only one of them.
“Eskimo” is accepted in Alaska as a term covering several people groups. “Inuit” is not so used.
Maybe Pig should sing a melody with no lyrics at all.
