Best definition

There's an annual contest at the Griffiths University , Australia , calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

This year's term was   'political correctness'.

The winning student wrote:

'Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition
that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.'

Couldn’t ask for anything better as far as I can see.


  1. Proof then, that some universities succeed in teaching their students to think logically.

  2. In a radio interview a few years ago, Barry Humphries as Dame Edna defined PC something along these lines, " ... lying , by describing the world the way you would like it to be rather than the way it actually is ... " or something a bit like that, but probably said much better.
    Might have been in an Ed Doolan interview on radio 4 or 4extra.
