This actually happened, and it is a sad day indeed. As you can see, we are inching closer and closer to the point of no return. The thought police rule, hothouse flowers with Twitter accounts will dictate business policy and cleverness in advertising – and all forms of communication – will be gone.
"Serial victims and citizens with chronic hurt feelings syndrome will rule the world."
I wish they would not have done this but it’s their business and they have to deal with the fallout. Kleenex will now re-brand its "Mansize" tissues after consumers complained the name was sexist — touching off a social media conversation about what's in a name. Again, this actually happened.
The product, which is sold only in the U.K. at this time, will now be called "Kleenex Extra Large."
Kimberly-Clark _ the company behind Kleenex – told Britain's Daily Telegraph that it in "no way suggests" that being both soft and strong was "an exclusively masculine trait, nor do we believe that the Mansize branding suggests or endorses gender inequality."
And finally, the world is safe. - Don Stuck
