As someone who lives in the town that once banned Santa Claus, my sympathies go out to the majority of Flintshire-ites who are squirming with embarrassment and outrage at the spineless wonders/uptight prudes who, rather than calling out someone for expressing themselves a la third grade/having a sense of humor, or simply rolling their eyes and reveling in their correctness of their misanthropy, decided to change the name of a beloved British tradition:

Although, name aside, it's a nasty dessert anyway, and I consider it a character flaw that people are still eating it. Sponge with sultanas more properly describes its insipid horribleness. Spotted Dick always sounded like it would be fun to eat. Till I ate it. And it was nasty. (This is me, pulling out my misanthropy and loosening up my eyeballs so that I'm properly prepared for the comments.)

Among the many others, this has to be one of the top reasons we love you, because of the adventurous way you'll put anything in your mouth. ;D

I can one up your town banning Santa Claus. My school has banned anything at all that resembles a holiday. The reason that we were given for this attrocity..."it will open the door for the satanists". Can you believe that?
