In honour of Hunter Spanjer, the 3-year old deaf boy whose parents were told to get a different sign for his name, as his was too scary for his teachers, today we are doing the all Hunter Fluffernutter Friday.

First up, Ian Hunter in his prime (and yes, that’s Mick Ronson on guitar).

Here’s a question: how long until the former Mrs. Rod Stewart and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Rachel Hunter has to change her name to Rachel Hooter, and go to the Sports Illustrated photo hug to get her picture taken?

The Pimply Minions Rebellion…

August 31st, 2012

…2-years on.

normalWhat’s in a name when it offends against the pimply minion mindset?

So you have a lovely son, and give him a not un-common name, Hunter. During his routine pediatric tests, you learn Hunter is deaf. What’s a family to do? You start by teaching him sign language, including the most basic of communications, his name.

Now three, Hunter is being told by some school administrator in Grand Island Nebraska to change how he signs his name because it looks like he’s shooting a gun. (actually, it looks to me like more like pleasing a woman 101, but no school administrator gets their knickers twisted over sexualizing 3-year olds)

Hunter’s dad, Brian Spanjer, in a classic bit of understatement, said “I feel l like it was an overreach…”

No Brian, it’s not an overreach, it’s who they are and what they do. It may have taken longer to come to Middle America, but there’s a rebellion being waged against the populace by the pimply minions of bureaucracy. This is merely a shot.
