no cygnet committee*

I took this picture on the Dorchester Bypass today while Dad was driving and it's merely one of the many signs for Abbotsbury Swannery that is encouraging visitors to see the "baby swans".

I am not sure why the people behind this felt that the word "cygnets" would not have the same impact as "baby swans" but I take this to be another regrettable step in the ongoing dumbing-down of Britain.

(*with thanks to David Bowie for the idea for the title)
