Bunny chow

28 July 2014, 10:08

This story is dedicated to you: the oversensitive reader and easily offended commentator, on the News24 website.

Every now and then, a comment, or an article by contributors to My News24, would be deleted by (overzealous?) editing from the News24 team – or because someone has complained. Now you tell me: What can one talk about these days that is not going to stir the ire of the Irish, Christians, atheists, bigots, gays, racists, anti-racists, homophobes, vegetarians, cannibals, Muslims, philatelists, xylophones, dyslexics, and all and all?

Why are we so thin-skinned? Why not just tell the one who has offended you to EFF off – and carry on with your life? Life is too short to listen to bad vibes from other people.

As far as I’m concerned – anything goes, just as long as you do not set out to intentionally hurt other people feelings or beliefs. We should learn to laugh at ourselves before we laugh at others. Easy as that. (I laugh a lot, Sakkie, for obvious reasons.)

I’ll tell you a little secret. This is my personal motto in life: What other people think of me is none of my business.

Try it, it works for me.

Here is the Story I promised you at the beginning:

The Furry Bunny

Once upon a time, a furry little bunny was sitting outside his burrow in the glittering rays of the early morning sun. All around, playful insects were buzzing happily; the stream was gurgling merrily in the meadow; and birds were singing cute three-part harmonies – welcoming the golden rays of sunshine gliding through luscious green trees of the surrounding forest.

The little bunny was warm and happy. His mommy had just given him a nice, juicy yellow carrot, to nibble on for breakfast.

Later in the day, the bunny and his mommy were going to the mall in the forest, to buy fresh veggies for their evening meal. While Mommy was doing her shopping, the little bunny would be playing on the swings in the play area. All of his friends would be there: Little Lamby Pamby, Foxy Loxy, Goosy Loosy, Ducky Lucky, and…

Sheet! I can’t do this! I wasn’t made to cater for pissies and sissies!

So here’s the deal:

To all the oversensitive readers out there: Have a really sheet week-end, and try to get over yourselves.

And,

To all the rest of you: Have a fantastic weekend! Party till the sky falls! You are the salt of the Earth. Enjoy!

PS   I love bunny chow. The Debbin one, and all and all.
