Goofy no longer… published on

Disney has just announced that its character “Goofy” will next month be renamed to “Eccentric Dog-Person Doofus” in order to not offend the weird and mentally ill amongst us. The change comes after years of lobbying by bodies such as the “Association Of Incurably Goofy Persons” and “Trans-Dogs Are Real Dogs Too,” who have long argued that referring to the psychiatrically disturbed and dog-like as being goofy is offensive to both the mentally ill and to individuals showing pronounced canine qualities. Disney denies that the move is simply a case of one-upping Hasbro after its decision to rename Mr. Potato Head to “Non-Binary Person of Potato-Shaped Inclusiveness.”
