Self-propelled dhimmitude in action 

It's your "political correctness leading us down the road to hell" moment of the day, and it's a doozy. It's a move so stupid, that even Muslims can't believe it.
The story of the Three Little Pigs' battle with the Big Bad Wolf has delighted children since it was written more than 150 years ago. But the tale highlighting the merits of hardwork and practicality has become the latest to fall victim to political correctness. A junior school production of the children's story has been renamed the Three Little Puppies for fear of offending Muslims.
Committee member Gill Goodswen, head teacher of Stile Common Junior School, defending the move. She said:
"We have to be sensitive if we want to be multi-cultural. It was felt it would be more responsible not to use the three little pigs."
She stressed the decision was not prompted by a complaint from any school. But Shaykh Ibrahim Mogra from the Muslim Council of Britain branded the move 'bizarre'. He said: "The vast majority of Muslims have no problem whatsoever with the Three Little Pigs. It's always been the traditional way of telling the story and I don't see why that should be changed."
WOW. That's… WOW.

I've been quite literally knocked speechless from the stupid. Meanwhile, your "non-shocker of the day"...
