Oh, FFS!

It does have a slope, for crying out loud!

Look at the picture, it is sloping from the left to the right.

Oh, and for the racemonger Somi Guha, who is claiming that the term is racist, a short lesson in English usage:

slope [slohp]
verb (used without object), sloped, slop·ing.

1. to have or take an inclined or oblique direction or angle considered with reference to a vertical or horizontal plane; slant.

2. to move at an inclination or obliquely: They sloped gradually westward.

verb (used with object), sloped, slop·ing.

3. to direct at a slant or inclination; incline from the horizontal orvertical: The sun sloped its beams.

Any half decent judge will throw this one out with a reminder to Ms Guha to grow the fuck up and get over herself and stop trying to find racism in perfectly normal English words being used in the correct context. Oh, right, I see…

God, but I hate these fucking people. Clarkson meanwhile goes up in my estimation as even without trying he is pissing off all the right people.,


  1. She’s described as an actress, but the only mention of her work in any report I’ve seen was ‘Children Of Men’, a Clive Owen flop from quite a few years ago. I guess she found a more lucrative pursuit…

  2. What? I’ve never heard the term before. I had to read the article twice before I could see what all the fuss was about. So another word to add the the lexicon of self-censorship. It’s the beginning of a slippery ……………

  3. Better go after Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Walken then too as “slope” is used in it’s derogatory sense in the film Pulp Fiction.
