Breaking: Pork Chop Offensive

I only wish this was the most ridiculous thing I ever heard.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs minor league baseball team this afternoon announced it is replacing the winning entry in its "Name the Mascot" contest from PorkChop to Ferrous.

IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes said he received a handful of e-mails and phone calls last night from people in the Latino community who called the name derogatory.

Well, better change the name of the meat, too. How does 'the other white meat chop' sound. Anyone offended?
