Down With Political Incorrectness!

A blatant example of poor taste aimed at dogs.
Thank God for all those dedicated liberals who wake up each day and stay glued to FOX News, looking for examples of political incorrectness. Where would we be without them? Still, they do miss things from time to time. For example, years ago The Band had a hit, one of the few songs of theirs I liked, called "Up On Cripple Creek."  Dammit, that's just plain wrong and disrespectful! The song is rife with political incorrectness and should be addressed since their music lives on today. Do we want our young people hearing these words and getting all triggered? (Fortunately they no longer have to tolerate Huckleberry Finn in schools since all copies have likely been burned by now, along with Tom Sawyer and Gone With the Wind.) 

Besides the awful "crippled," the word "drunkard" is also offensive and should be replaced with "person suffering from the disease of alcoholism." I am also not thrilled with the use of "nag" in the next to the last paragraph; how about "senior steed"?  Here are the new lyrics: 

Up On Physically Challenged Creek

When I get off of this mountain
You know where I want to go
Straight down the Mississippi River
To the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake George, Louisiana
Little Bessie, girl that I once knew
And she told me just to come on by
If there's anything she could do

Up on Physically Challenged Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me
A person suffering from the disease of alcoholism's dream if I ever did see one
Good luck had just stung me
 

To the race track I did go
She bet on one horse to win
And I bet on another to show
Odds were in my favor
I had him five to one
When that senior steed came around the track
Sure enough we had won

Up on Physically Challenged Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me
A person suffering from the disease of alcoholism's dream if I ever did see one

There. Now isn't that better?
