Wokeness is predatory. Its perpetrators wander the lonely cultural abyss that they have created and if they spot any sign of life, they instantly pounce on it and denounce it in feverish hyena howls. Anything that hasn’t been denounced yet for some sort of thoughtcrimes will soon be as the starving wokes assail it.
Now it’s the turn of the ‘Great British Bake Off’ because its hosts wore sombreos.
The Great British Bake Off will scrap its national-themed challenge weeks in the new series after viewers slammed these rounds in recent years.
To quote the Simpsons, which predicted the future, “massive complaints from two people.”
In 2020, the show had a ‘Japan Week’, then a ‘German Week’ the following year, and a ‘Mexican Week’ last year.
Besides the dishes from each country which weren’t sufficiently authentic, Mexican Week saw hosts Noel Fieling and Matt Lucas don sombreros, use maracas and speak in Spanish accents.
The horror, the humanity, the insufficiently accurate tortillas.
Executive producer Kieran Smith told The Guardian newspaper: “We didn’t want to offend anyone but the world has changed and the joke fell flat.
“We’re not doing any national themes this year.”
Mission accomplished. No more ethnic foods. The ‘Great British Bake Off’ will be purely British in a win for tolerance, diversity, inclusion, and all the progressive values of cultural apartheid.
Instead, Smith said, the show would return to its popular traditional roots. “We’re doing all the regular weeks: Cakes, biscuits, bread, patisserie, chocolate, plus party cakes is a new theme.”
So it’s a win-win. Less diversity means better baked goods.
The world has changed and no one is allowed to wear any hats, speak in any accents or eat any foods other than their own. Cheerio!
