Derek & Clive are great if you want to be offensive. That's Pete & Dud for the uninitiated.

I find it embarrassing for the forum and the members that don't think those things are appropriate and/or funny. For the record once again I'm not offended, I just don't think those types of jokes are that funny or clever. Everyone is free to post these recycled jokes, that's what makes the free world so great.
And yet you still miss the irony of your posts... :)

An Englishman, an Irishman, a Welshman, and a Scotsman are all on a hot air balloon...
The conductor almost panicked says, there's too much weight! Someone needs to jump off, or we're going to crash! The Welshman bravely steps up, For the glory of wales! And the Welshman throws himself off... The conductor still panicked says, okay, we're close but there is still too much weight! The Irishman, in a patriotic manner yells, For Ireland!... And throws the Englishman off

Perhaps this should be on a separate PC (instead of PC incorrect) thread, but I couldn't quite believe this when I read it on the BBC news website yesterday.

Fairytale of New York: BBC Radio 1 will not play original version

BBC Radio 1 will not play the original version of Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl this Christmas, because its audience may be offended by some of the lyrics.

The station said young listeners were particularly sensitive to derogatory terms for gender and sexuality.

It will instead play an edited version with different lyrics sung by MacColl.

But the 1987 original will still be played on Radio 2, while 6 Music DJs can choose between the two versions.

A BBC spokesman said: "We know the song is considered a Christmas classic and we will continue to play it this year, with our radio stations choosing the version of the song most relevant for their audience."

But Radio 1 has decided younger listeners who are unfamiliar with the track would find some of the words stark and not in line with what they would expect to hear on air.

The new edited version changes two lines - one swapped for an alternative version in which MacColl sings "You're cheap and you're haggard" in place of a homophobic slur.

MacColl sang the newly-added line on Top of the Pops in 1992. She died in a boat accident in Mexico eight years later, at the age of 41.

The same wording was used by Ronan Keating and Moya Brennan in their 2000 cover version. When Ed Sheeran and Anne-Marie performed the song in Radio 1's Live Lounge in 2017, she opted to call him a "cheap lousy blagger".

In Radio 1's newly-edited version, another line, sung by Shane MacGowan in the second verse, has a word removed entirely.

Radio 1 has played the song in its original form in recent years, but the insults contained in the lyrics, sung in the form of a blazing row between an alcoholic and a heroin addict, have long been criticised by some.

The track was censored by Radio 1 back in 2007, but that decision was swiftly reversed after an outcry by its fans.

Andy Parfitt, the station's controller at the time, explained the U-turn by saying its audiences were "smart enough to distinguish between maliciousness and creative freedom", and there was no "negative intent behind the use of the words".

In 2018, MacGowan defended the song, explaining: "The word was used by the character because it fitted with the way she would speak and with her character. She is not supposed to be a nice person, or even a wholesome person.

"She is a woman of a certain generation at a certain time in history, and she is down on her luck and desperate. Her dialogue is as accurate as I could make it, but she is not intended to offend.

"She is just supposed to be an authentic character and not all characters in songs and stories are angels or even decent and respectable. Sometimes characters in songs and stories have to be evil or nasty in order to tell the story effectively."

Apparently it's no longer politically correct to direct a joke at any racial or ethic minority, so...
An Englishman, a Scotsman, an Irishman, a Welshman, a Gurkha, a Latvian, a Turk, an Aussie, two Kiwis, a German, an American, a South African, a Cypriot, an Egyptian, a Japanese, a Mexican, a Spaniard, a Pole, a Lithuanian, a Swede, a Finn, a Dane, a Romani, a Bulgarian, a Swiss, a Greek, a Bulgarian, a Singaporean, a Norwegian, a Libyan, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Monk, an Italian, a Serb, a Russian and an Ethiopian went to a bar.

The bouncer said, "I'm sorry, you can't come in here without a Thai"

Back in the 80s, I started work at a large nuclear plant as a Safety Equipment Worker. One of our duties was to fit test the whole site for masks/respirators. To do this you would have people enter a room we called "the gas chamber" while wearing a respirator and bright orange coveralls. We would then ignite a tear gas pellet and see if the respirator fit was effective ;-)

At the time we had a legendary shop steward called Jimmy D, fully fledged alcoholic, and lazy as the day is long, but a very funny guy.

So Jimmy was assigned to this task one day, which happened to be the day we had some very important German visitors from Euratom on site, who needed to be fit tested.

One of these guys was a bit terrified when it was explained to him what the process would be by Jimmy D, and refused to enter the "gas chamber". So Jimmy shoved him inside and shut the door saying "Listen mate, it was good enough for the Jews, so it's f**king good enough for you!".

Good old days :lol:

If you want to make the comparison with Waccoe, a) it's less of an old man's closed shop, b) I can stick up for myself without getting banned, c) only last week someone was banned for targeting me with sexist 'jokes'.

I love MOT, I really do, but it is only a comfortable place to be so long as you conform to the opinions of a certain demographic. That those people invoke the right to freedom of speech whilst doubling down on their version of what others should think is the one truly funny thing in this thread.

Incidentally, the only thing I'm 'offended' by personally (since gammons love to use that word), is the suggestion that women can't shoot; I was a crack shot with a Lee Enfield 303 by the time I was fifteen.

The gas chamber comment is decidedly off though.
