Yes, friends, we may have trouble right here in River City, but thank goodness for the legislators of Minnesota (the state which gave us Al Franken) who have put this particular pressing issue to bed.

"In our times of political correctness there’s really not much that liberals won’t say is offensive to somebody, which means that everybody else must change in order to prevent it. So to hear that they want to change the name of a fish in order to prevent people from being offended by it isn’t a surprise, however to have a state legislature actually pass a bill on it is ridiculous.

On Monday of last week, the Minnesota Senate passed a bill from Democrat John Hoffman that changes the name of the Asian carp, which is the appropriate name since it originated in Asia, to the “invasive carp.” He doesn’t want Asians to be offended over the name since the fish has spread across dozens of states and caused widespread destruction to ecosystems ever since being introduced to American waters in 1970.

According to Breitbart, the Army Corps of Engineers has been fighting to stem the population growth of the most invasive species of the fish, the black carp, the silver carp, and the grass carp, all of which come from either China or Vietnam and have spread throughout the Great Lakes and posed a danger to the fishing industries.

Do you ever get sick of liberals finding offensive things where there’s no offense to be taken? Seriously what’s more offensive, giving a name to a fish based on its geographic origins, or claiming that the name given to it somehow reflects the Asian race and is therefore offensive?"

I feel quite relieved and I am not even Asian (<<<can I say that?).

What are going to do about: the Black Marlin? The Tautog, commonly known as the Black Fish? The Black Sea Bass? The Red Fish? The Red Drum? [We know how upset they get with the color Red]. Does this mean the Great WHITE Shark comes off the Endangered list because it's part of the White Patriarchy? What about the Coney Island, or Hudson River Whitey? If the Asian Carp is rascist, what about the Asian Crab? Decisions, Decisions!

Or, blue crabs. That even sounds vaguely racist.
