I remember singing traditional Nursery Rhymes as a child, and I don’t for one second think they impacted me. Recently, I keep hearing different versions of the old classics, and I’ve realised they are all Politically Correct Nursery Rhymes! I really don’t get it!

Politically Correct Nursery Rhymes

When I was a kid, the Sheep was Black. Did that make me racist? NOPE!
So why have the powers that be decided that the sheep must now be White?

I travelled 1200 miles a few years ago. I took in a lot of UK countryside as I travelled the length of our country.
Do you know how many Black sheep I saw in all of that time? ONE! Everyone in the car was actively looking for them, too!
We had a competition going… The first one to spot a Black Sheep wouldn’t have to buy a round at all while we were away.

Seriously, though. Why HAS the world gone so mad?

I have corrected a couple of Nursery Rhymes myself – just to make them PC….

Some of my own Politically Correct Nursery Rhymes…

politically correct nursery rhymes - three visually impaired mice. (photo showing 3 mice)

Firstly: Three Blind Mice has become:

Three “Visually Impaired” Mice
Three “Visually Impaired” Mice
See how they run
See how they run

They all ran after the Farmer’s Wife
Who was never so scared in all her life
Did you see how they caused such strife

Three Visually Impaired Mice!

Politically Correct Nursery Rhymes - THIS LITTLE PIGGY

Secondly: I have changed “This Little Piggy” to:

“This Little Piggy went to Asda. (Cos the Market might sell GM veggies)
This Little Piggy stayed at home. (Cos he was a squatter and might be evicted if he left).
This Little Piggy had roast Quorn. (Cos over 10% of us are herbivores now).
This Little Piggy had none. (Cos he was obese, and doing Slim Fast).
And This Little Piggy went wee wee wee wee wee all the way to the housing office to report his noisy neighbours!”

OK OK, so that one is probably not very PC at all. BUT I am mostly taking the mickey out of myself. (Asda shopper, veggie, obese & always moaning about my neighbourhood).

Thirdly: If you liked mine, you’ll probably like these ones too.

I found them on the Daily Mail online, when googling PC Nursery Rhymes.

So Don’t judge me…!!

Politically Correct Nursery Rhymes

Firstly, feel free to share your own PC Nursery Rhymes in the comments…

Secondly, by all means… Tell me off if you think Baa Baa should suddenly become White after over 200 years of being Black! Black Sheep are so rare, so Baa Baa should have been proud, not forced to bleach his wool, surely?

Finally, I’m sure you’ve enjoyed these Politically Correct Nursery Rhymes! So why not check out some more of my random ramblings!
