The Island of Lesbos Sues Lesbian Groups

News Flash – The island of Lesbos has taken exception to “lesbians,” or as the spokesperson gently put it, “certain ladies who have no connection whatsoever with Lesbos,” using the term “lesbian.”

As he so aptly stated, “My sister can’t say she is a Lesbian.”

I note he forgot to add the Australian (and Jerry Seinfeld) politically correct – “Not that there is anything wrong with that.”

I wonder where these folk have been. The term ‘lesbian’ goes back eons.  It seems to be the sort of legal action one would normally expect from a pack of U.S lawyers. (Congress’ coined phrase, “freedom fries,” comes to mind here.)

I guess if they win this one, they have thousands of groups from which they can try and extort money. A Greek tragedy, indeed.
