The Three Little Pigs are back

The Three Little Pigs have earned a reprieve after they were ditched from a children’s show to avoid offending Muslims. Organisers of the Kirklees Primary Music Festival changed the traditional tale to Three Little Puppies, reports the Telegraph.

But local councillors have now stepped in to reverse the decision which they said was well-intentioned but wrong. Children from Honley Church of England Junior School in Huddersfield are to perform Roald Dahl’s version of Little Red Riding Hood, which features the pigs, at the Town Hall.

Festival organisers were concerned the Three Little Pigs could offend Muslim children taking part, or their parents.

I’m trying to recall the last time I heard about a Muslim country being concerned about offending the sensibilities of anyone.

A German belly dancer has been awarded [ about $24,000 ] compensation after a plastic surgeon accidentally sucked away one of her buttocks. Julia Cleopatra Meyer, 38, from Munich, wanted slimmer thighs and instead ended up with half her bum missing.

The court heard that during the liposuction the plastic surgeon, not named, from a private clinic, had removed fat from her right buttock instead of her thighs.
