(Little brother to his older sister) What is political correctness?
(Older sister) It's something you're not suppose to talk about.
(Little brother) How am I going to find out what it is if I can't talk about it?
(Older sister) You can talk about it but you have to talk about it in the right way.
(Little brother) How do I talk about it the right way?
(Older Sister) Just don't say anything and you can't go wrong!
(Little brother) How am I suppose to communicate and tell people how I feel.
(Older Sister) I haven't got that part figured out yet, it's a slippery slope.
(Little brother) What's a slippery slope?
Many small towns in rural Maine are too small for a town manager so they elect (select) at their town meetings "Select Persons" to do the town's business. Athens was very proud that they elected the first female Select Person. She was not a native and had recently moved from New Jersey where things were very sophisticated compared to this 130 person town.
Wanting to impress the town's people her first decision was to convince the other two Select Persons to make the main street "One Way Only", just like her home town in NJ. The biggest problem resulting from this decision however, is that everyone can go to work, they just can't get back.
