There’s this belief that the British are somehow less moronic than Americans. (I’m not saying that Americans aren’t morons – I’m just challenging the notion that they’re smarter than us.) Then the story of a disabled children’s show host comes along. Cerrie Burnell is the host to two children shows on BBC. Burnell was born without a right hand and this has led to complaints to the BBC and on the internet. My favorite is the following:
In one chat room, a father lamented that Burnell being on the show forced him to have conversations with his child about disabilities
Oh the humanity. Being forced to talk to one’s kids about something other than Big Brother.
