Can't top this one... lolGuardian: Thomas the Tank Engine is Racist Because the Evil Trains Pump Out Black Smoke

For the Guardian, these sorts of things happen every five days or so. Maybe 10. And today's is a corker. (http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/jul/22/thomas-the-tank-engine-children-parents
"...these trains perform tasks dictated by their imperious, little white boss, Sir Topham Hatt (also known as The Fat Controller), whose attire of a top hat, tuxedo and big round belly is just a little too obvious.

Hatt orders the trains to do everything from hauling freight to carrying passengers to running whatever random errand he wants done, whenever he wants it done – regardless of their pre-existing schedules.
"(For the record, all the "villains" on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines.
