>Waitrose has apologised over "racist" Easter ducks after customers complained that the dark brown one was labelled as "ugly".

>An £8 trio of white, milk and dark chocolate Easter ducklings caused offence among a "small number" of customers for being labelled as "fluffy", "crispy" and "ugly". The complaints centered around the the dark brown one being described as the "ugly" one, with some implying it was racist.

I bet they're hollow as well.

At least they didn't remove Easter from the name on the packaging, otherwise all hell would have broken loose.

The question I ask myself is would the people who would complain the most about the absurdity of these things be up in arms if the only white one was labelled ugly. I think the answer is Yes.

I think you're on a hiding to nothing by calling any of them crispy.

What you called the yellow one crispy because chinalings all work in takeaways and love crispy duck?

What you called the brown ones crispy because their skin is all dark and burnt from the sun?

Either way you'll be committing hate crimes.

I would have assumed it's because many people don't like dark chocolate. But then again I'm not on the official twitter dolphin rape patrol.

Personally I love dark chocolate but can't stand the white stuff. Goddamn honky-ass sickly shite.

White Chocolate isn't even chocolate. It was invented by Nestlé when they decided to mix vitamin enriched condensed milk with cocoa butter and other byproducts from making proper chocolate. It was only intended to be a solid tablet of vitamins that'd been sweetened up to make them appealable to kids.

You watch, it'll turn out Jaffa Cakes were an attempt to trick kids into eating haliborange.

Am I literally the only person in the world who can see the speckling on the Ugly duck? Isn't that why it's labelled Ugly? Not because it's fucking meant to represent an African person or whatever? The speckling hasn't been mentioned either in this thread or in the article.

The ugly duckling is actually a cygnet, which turns into a beautiful swan when it grows up.

Wait a minute, what actually is the moral of that story? If you're ugly and it turns out you're the same species as the people calling you ugly then you're shit out of luck?

Hans-Christian-Andersen-2.jpg
631046310463104
I've been reading up on hans christian Anderson. He was the 19th century equivalent of an chronic masturbator.

He was bullied throughout childhood and teased for his looks. He didn't have any luck with women. He tried striking up a friendship with Dickens but blew it by coming on too strong and being too much of a massive sperglord.

>In Andersen's early life, his private journal records his refusal to have sexual relations.

>Andersen often fell in love with unattainable women, and many of his stories are interpreted as references. At one point, he wrote in his diary: "Almighty God, thee only have I; thou steerest my fate, I must give myself up to thee! Give me a livelihood! Give me a bride! My blood wants love, as my heart does!"

The ugly duckling is about himself and being bullied throughout childhood. It's one of those shut-in fantasies about the friendless loser growing up and becoming a big success, shoving it in the face of all the chads and Stacey's who wronged him. If Hans Christian Andersen had been born about 200 years later then chances are he'd have written something along the lines of Elliot Rodger's manifesto.

It's not unusual.
>Dante's courtly love for Beatrice continued for nine years, before the pair finally met again. This meeting occurred in a street of Florence, which she walked along dressed in white and accompanied by two older women. She turned and greeted him, her salutation filling him with such joy that he retreated to his room to think about her.

Seems like he turned his frustration into a healthy drive for success and that obviously worked out for him even if he was still, at heart, an awkward speg. Good for him.

To be honest, a lot of the issues with īncels stem from the fact that they've been mollycoddled by their parents and are used to having things handed on a plate to them so they struggle when they've got to start looking after themselves. If their parents could organise for them to lie in bed with a lass tied up in a bag then that'd solve some of their problems.

(A good day to you Sir!)
