Thoughts Without Words: Spring Spheres???

Via Joanne Jacobs;
Some high school students volunteered at a local elementary to pass out Easter eggs, but since we live in the time of political correctness and having anything relate to Christianity is wrong, they passed out spring spheres instead;
"I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay," Jessica explained. "She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat 'spring spheres.' I couldn't call them Easter eggs."

Rather than question the decision, Jessica opted to "roll with it." But the third graders had other ideas.

"When I took them out of the bag, the teacher said, 'Oh look, spring spheres' and all the kids were like 'Wow, Easter eggs.' So they knew," Jessica said.
How stupid have we become as a society. First off a sphere is a round ball, not an oval shape. And when...nevermind. Just nevermind. When are people going to stand up and fight stuff like this?

Well, they HAVE to call it "spring spheres" because "spring ovals" just sound ridiculous. HAHAHA

well if they wanted to be mathematically correct you would use prolate/oblate spheroid egg

Evidently, it's far more important to be politically correct than mathematically correct, which is probably the reason why the USA is doing so poorly in math and science.
