Calimero, my hero

How can an adorable baby chick be controversial?
If you're stupid and mean, anything can become a matter of controversy.
Here is Calimero, a true precursor of the civil rights movement. Discriminated against because he's not white (having fallen into some mud shortly after birth). He asks his mom/hen: Se io fossi bianco, mi vorresti? (would you want me if I were white?). Then: Non trovo la mia mamma perche' sono nero (I can't find my mom because I'm black). Now Calimero is known all over the world and has millions of fans, and moms and dads.
Check out the cool chick's site at, with virtual Christmas cards, decorations, and more. Calimero forever! Down with the politically correct!
