Liverpool are banned from insults

This is one of the funniest things I've ever read.  Liverpool sent a letter out to their staff telling them what insulting and offensive terms they aren't allowed to use.  Jesus wept.

I would have paid so much money to sit and watch the meeting where they decide what is and isn't offensive.  Gathered around a table in an office:

"What about knob-jockey?" 
"Oh yes good question, is anyone offended by the word knob-jockey?" 
Voice in the back: "I am" 
"Write it down"

It's incredible.  I've been sitting here giggling to myself for about half an hour now, just waiting for something to pop up on a news feed that says
