Nanny Bans Dick

Nanny Bans DickDear oh dear!

I see our chums from Flintshire County Council are making prats of themselves again.

It seems that the traditional British pudding "Spotted Dick" has been deemed "offensive" by the Thought Police.

As such the word "Dick" has been treated in an Orwellian manner and deemed "ungood". The new name for the pudding is "Spotted Richard".

Flintshire County Council have confirmed that Spotted Dick had been taken off their menu at the offices in Mold, North Wales.

I am sure that the taxpayers of Flintshire welcome the fact that their taxes are being put to such good use by employing the knobheads who renamed "Dick".

Doubtless when panto season approaches, the old refrain:

"Ten miles to London, and still no sign of Dick!"

Will also be banned by Flintshire.

    I have no wish to sound uncharitable, but in respect of this council, and the interfering twat who came up with this piece of censorship, the term
    "dickheads" seems appropriate!

  2. Being a good Eastend boy, now living in exile in Berkshire, the term "Richard" also has an amusing meaning, namely turd from the cockney rhyming slang; Richard the third.
    So, for me, Spotted Richard means a turd suffering from acne:-)

    I'm trying to work this one out.

    By deliberately making this change they are actually emphasising the double-entendre, rather than just leaving things alone and no-one noticing. Now every time anyone reads 'Spotted Richard' on the menu they're going to know why it was changed and have a little snigger.

    As our Cockney friend Tonk might say, I think they're just 'avin a larf.

    'avin a larf, or 'avin a tin barf...

    What a bunch of richard-heads.

  5. OMG!!!!

    I've just had another thought....That's the third this week and it's only Wednesday....Perhaps there is a hidden agenda here.
    Is it possible that the Local Nanny is trying to bring the said pud into disrepute so it becomes so unpopular that it can be removed from her menu....Afterall, it is made from suet and thus is deemed by Nanny to be unhealthy, perhaps this is her real purpose regarding this name change....Or isn't Nanny as clever as that?

    I suspect the officer that came up with this name change plan is a bit of a paper hat.

    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they're not out to get you.

    They're having a laugh aren't they? Please tell me they're having a laugh.

    Smithy - spot on 'richardheads' indeed.

    You'd think they had more important things to worry about.

    Not that I propose it as the fount of reliable knowledge but Wikipedia suggested that this change has a precedent in that Gloucestershire NHS Trust made the same change some years ago but change back to 'Dick' in 2002.

    I wonder if the same person is responsible?
