Brits are forced to talk to their children

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. ┬áBeing forced to talk to one’s kids about something other than Big Brother.
