Top 10 Alternative Catchy Names for Down’s Syndrome (other than Mong) List

October 18, 2011

Ricky Gervais, one of my all time favorite comedians is finally on Twitter. And soon enough he got himself in hot water with the PC police over his use of the word mong.

It seems to have reached Tracy Morgan Gay Rant levels as fellow comedians (no-one I’ve heard of though) has slammed him for his remarks. He, himself addressed the critique by saying: “Just to clarify for uptight people stuck in the past. The word mong means Down’s Syndrome about as much as the word gay means happy. I never use the word mong to mean anything to do with Down’s Syndrome.”

A clarification that clearly did nothing to stop the haters. Okay, so if people who know someone with Down’s Syndrome are still campaigning against the word mong, me and Janne the Director (after our hugely successful Top Ten Sesame Street Porn Titles list) have yet again put or heads together and set out to solve the problem and make a Top Ten Alternative Catchy Names for Down’s Syndrome (other than Mong) list.

We failed. I think we actually only made matters worse by coming up with: “Downies, Droolies, Surpriced but tired face syndrome, Lil Wayne’s, Tweeters and Mongoloids”. And those are the ones we dared to publish online. (I mean, we don’t want to have any unknown comedians slamming us, now do we?)

Mongs doesn’t sound all that bad now, does it?

    I don’t know why you didn’t post the suggestion everybody at the office agreed was the best. It wasn’t even insulting: “Sika”.
