This fellow seems to be quite adamant on the subject (via @EdDriscoll). I’m trying to figure out why centaurs: I mean, sure, let one of them start drinking and the next thing you know you’ve got a six-limbed Dionysian frenzy all up in your face, but that’s a known problem. Running through the recent portrayals in the arts… well, there was Prince Caspian, and aside from apparently casting a lookalike for the Rock as one of them I don’t see anything that would actually spark much ire, there.
Is this a Generation-whatever-we’re-up-to-these-days thing? I don’t have cable TV, so it takes me a bit to catch up with new cultural trends, sometimes.
