DAILY MANIFESTO

And Then There Was A New Title

Posted on Wednesday, March 5 @ 22:46:03 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
The Wii version of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None arrived at GR today, which was a bit of a surprise because I didn't know anybody was making it. Also, because the title has a long, controversial, racist history.

In fact, a High School drama class in the U.S. was recently prohibited from putting on a production of the play version because of that history. Fortunately, in an exceedingly unlikely event, people actually came to their senses and let them perform.

You see, when the book was originally published in England, it was called Ten Little Niggers after the children's nursery rhyme of the time.

When it came to the U.S. that was changed to Ten Little Indians, which was just fine at the time. Of course, now that's racist as well and the title was changed to And Then There Were None.

Then someone pointed out that despite the title change, the racist nursery rhyme was still in there. So in 2003, inside the pages the poem was changed to the ten little Soldiers.

The game? Well they're going with the ten little Sailors. Me? I'm using Belgians.

Ten little Belgian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were Nine.
Nine little Belgian boys sat up very late; One overslept himself and then there were Eight.
Eight little Belgian boys traveling in Devon; One said he'd stay there and then there were Seven.
Seven little Belgian boys chopping up sticks; One chopped himself in halves and then there were Six.
Six little Belgian boys playing with a hive; A bumblebee stung one and then there were Five.
Five little Belgian boys going in for law; One got into Chancery and then there were Four.
Four little Belgian boys going out to sea; A red herring swallowed one and then there were Three.
Three little Belgian boys walking in the Zoo; A big bear hugged one and then there were Two.
Two little Belgian boys were out in the sun; One got all frizzled up and then there was one.
One little Belgian boy left all alone; He went out and hanged himself and then there were none.
