Eskimo sweets attacked by PC brigade
Sometimes I read about consumer complaints and you empathise, on other occasions I just wonder what side of bed they got out of and there is an obvious need to take a chill-pill.
The ‘fuss’ over some Inuit (that’s an Eskimo) tourist has had a small fit over the soft marshmallow sweets called Eskimo. She’s incensed that Kiwi’s actually eat a representation of an Eskimo and claims is culturally insensitive… WTF!
Seeka Lee Veevee Parsons is from Canada and needs to chill out… probably heading home and getting waaaaay up north will enhance the serious amount of chilling out she needs to do.
I also see the MSM managed to dredge up and indignant acedemic, wow, there’s a surprise. Apparently Dr Nicole Gumby Gombay claims she was “shocked” to see the sweet on sale here, this was when she arrived here to study Inuit politics and culture… at Canterbury University… in Canterbury… in the South Island… of New Zealand. Maybe Dr Gombay is in the wrong place to study Inuit don’t you think?
Anyway, Seeka is going to send the sweets to her Grandfather (who’ll probably think they’re yummy) and the Canadian PM, presumably with the view of getting them to invade NZ and set things right.
Fortunately the maker of the sweets essentially told Seeka to get a life, and will continue to make the sweets.
I didn’t even know these still exsisted as I remember buying them at the corner dairy when I was a kid.
Next week, Seeka teams up with Sue Kedley & and Greens to launch a campaign to rid the world of Eskimo Pies.
