Team Oprah has insisted that a golliwog be removed from a Melbourne shop window. TO is on the money. Americans are right - "darn tooting", if you will - to protest against slavery, oppression, cruelty and the Richmond Football Club.

To make amends, the RFC should get her down to Punt Road, get her into a Richmond heritage jumper (the Black and Yellow vertical stripes one), and give her a yellow bandanna. Take a few promotional shots, have the network news there, ... she can make a big thing of it!
... wait, what?

... and now that I read the link, and see that old boot-in-mouth Jeff Kennett is making a fuss that it had to be removed.
Perhaps the garments the golliwog is wearing are really yellow and brown! It's actually a Hawthorn FC 'ambush marketing' stunt!

Kennett covets the golliwog demographic.

quote, Jeff, "I love golliwogs"
Can see this quote making a comeback during the season.

Didn't Harry O'Brien want to meet Oprah or have I got my stories COMPLETELY mixed up?

I haven't yet heard the phrase political correctness gone mad. You know the type: if I'm not offended by golliwogs, no-one else has a right to be.

speaking of offensive - the breaking news on Shane Warne schmoozing Mrs. Liz Hurley Nayan has elicited this comment in a thread on The (London)Sun:
Sorry Warnie but I can't see her trading in her textile heir for your textile hair.

Golliwogs are cool and I have several.

I prefer golliwogs to elves. Blame Peter Jackson.
Ann, what part of that is offensive? It's a golden quip.

What a goofball.
