Billy Fudge: On the name - March Lilies vs Daffodils

Great Wooded South Poll is in, "political correctness is out. Only 3 percent of locals + those from off refer to March Lilies as "Daffodils."

By Billy Joe Fudge, Dean
Great Wooded South University's School of Vernacular Authenticity

As we all know "political correctness" has run amuck and in the process has robbed us of many of our most cherished and I might add, innocent traditions. However, in order to not offend those with loose, sandy, shakable foundations and in the spirit of "political correctness", I will not reach into the inner darkness and bring any specific examples into the light of day although there are many at play.

In the case of March Lilies verses Daffodils however, I will stand my ground. In several impromptu polls that have been executed by the skilled and scientific pollsters at the Great Wooded South University's School of Vernacular Authenticity, only 3 percent of locals and those from "off" who have established their citizenship in the Great Wooded South actually refer to March Lilies as Daffodils.

I know that many "respectable" politicians do not govern based upon polling data, (yea, right) but to not do so in this case would fly in the face of the reality of the world in which we reside. - BJF
