there’s something wrong with modern ‘education’.
a silly old poop and I’ll be happy. Recognition in my own lifetime (sniff).
AND, ONE OF MY
favourite movies (current First Place, in fact) is the latest “Peter Rabbit”.
Recently I tripped over a prime example of modernity in the online rubble of what was once the mighty New Zealand Herald—
“Despite the darker undertones, this madcap movie is a refreshingly real take on Potter’s 1902 tale, one that adds romantic elements between the leads, a hilariously airy Rose Byrne as Bea, and the two-faced antics of Domhnall Gleeson as Thomas McGregor.
As Thomas, Gleeson plays the gardener’s son who returns home to find his dad’s house full of farmyard animals and launches an all-out war on Peter Rabbit and co, one that escalates to include dynamite being thrown into rabbit warrens, and humans being electrocuted.
Yes, Peter Rabbit has “PG – Violence” rating for a reason …”

—and it triggered an eyebrow raise so emphatic that had I been wearing a rabbit it would have flown across the room.
These (reporters) are the product of folks who insisted on fencing all the swimming pools … whilst completely neglecting the many thousands of miles of coastlines, lake sides, streams, creeks, rivers, puddles, bath tubs and cess pits. The mind boggles—Moderns have no idea of what it’s like without a crash helmet, and for all I know what it’s like to paddle in a puddle without a lifejacket.
Sure … in the movie old man McGregor karks it—but not in such a manner as to so arouse the indignation of the PC. He dies so sweetly and gently that even the rabbit he plans on turning into a pie has his doubts.
“…Yes, Peter Rabbit has “PG – Violence” rating for a reason.
I was expecting cute and cuddly animals, vegetable puns, an over-the-top love story and to probably have a bit of a sleep halfway through this.
I was not expecting bunny murder, dynamite and electrocutions …”
Oh dear. I remember when Noddy was excoriated by the PC for sharing a bed with Big Ears—
