    My son had been reading dambusters as a 11 year old and teacher asked him what was happening. He casually observed that the aforementioned black Labrador had just been hit and killed as mission was launching.

    Teacher launched in full bore with the racism stuff

    Anyone remember the old Dick and Dora school readers? They would make the woke crowd blush!

    Gawd! Fluff 'n Nip. What an insidious pair of pets. Fluff was Dora's pussy and Nip was Dick's mongrel. There were also Jack 'n May, who were Dick 'n Doras' friends.
    Apparently the political correct police put a stop to things by invading the authors house.

    May, who may, or may not have been a whistle blower, managed to elude them and so all the police found was Jack, Dick 'n Dora.

    There is an old lady who takes her pets to the same Vet I do - She has a black Lab and yes it’s called that name. i heard her call the dog when I was there. I mentioned it to the Vet who said “That’s the 3rd Black Lab she’s had since I’ve known her and they’ve all been called that”. Guess it’s a generational thing.

    Apparently the word “negro” is verboten, too.

    I believe the dog in Dam Busters was renamed for the US market. His name wasremoved from the statue at the RAF base.

    Does this also mean that playing, singing or even looking less than totally shocked should that classic Kevin Bloody Wilson Australian 'ballad' "Living next door to Alan" be aired ?
