UPDATE: the M-word? Little People, Big Mess

The little people kicked things off with a big bang in Brooklyn today. At the Little People of America conference, the organization announced that it had filed papers with the FCC to get midget out of the parlance of our times (so to speak). They’d like to see the “M-word” go the way of other words we now refer to as first letter- word (K-word, N-word…is there some kind of mid-alphabet bias going on here?). Midget is not in the AP Stylebook, although neither is dwarf or little person, but that doesn’t keep people, pop culture and the press from using it with great abandon. And now, the coolest video ever.
