  • The "Bellringer" of Notre Dame ?????

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,56505,00.html

    so as not to offend anyone The Hunchback of Notre Dame has been changed to The "Bellringer" of Notre Dame by a british theater company.

    what's next -- Men in Black changed to Men in African-American Clothing??

    I'll post, You argue.

          They will have to change it to something entirely different since the mascot and the word "fighting" invokes a negative stereotype of Irish.

            i think they should also change the name of the Gustav Flaubert title "Madame Bovary" to "Madame B-part of the female reproductive system" so not one will be offended by the word "ovary".
            I'll post, You argue.

                      I just hope it's not a dig against Native Americans. I'd hate for that to happen.

                        It looks like it may have been an attempt at sarcasm...

                          Yeah, I read this as just a joking comment. People don't know why 'redskin' hurts (and that the owners of the team that uses the derogatory names/mascots are not about to change because of a decision made overseas).

                          Shadows was just being funny.

                            Jim, I have a serious question here. One of the Navajo Schools out on the reservation (I can't remember where it is now) is The Redskins. What I don't understand is why they would call themselves that, if it is considered derogatory.

                              You know, the people who make a fuss about the simple change of a name are the same who I bet never bitch when Disney takes a giant carving knife to the stories they make their cartoon films out of.
