Game on for Mad Hatter's Tea Party

A HOT topic in the media recently has been the new handbook for the upcoming Commonwealth Games with its over-the-top political correctness on how to address visitors.

How are we going to refer to the men's and women's events?

Would you call them Homo sapiens or just man and woman?

In my day, you were either married, divorced, girlfriend, boyfriend, fiance, Mr, Mrs or Miss.

Am I missing something or is this actually the Mad Hatter's Tea Party?

The film title from the '60s rings true: It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.
