Frankie Boyle-Mock The Week

As we slide ever deeper into a nation full of authoritarian wimps, misfits and emotionally incontinent tarts, the excellent Mock The Week is now in the firing line.

If you don't know Mock The Week is a satirical show where comedians make funny remarks about the week's news, well most do, Russell Howard is just a tedious little prat excuse for a comedian, but he at least makes the others appear even funnier by comparison.

So unless you are dead from the neck up you know that satire, by definition, will be edgy and quite possibly offensive to the innocent or naive. Well the show has now been chastised by the BBC after 75, yes 75 not 75,000 or 7,500 or even 750 people complained about remarks by the excellent comedian Frankie Boyle. So what did Frankie say? Don't read on if you are easily offended.

Referring to swimmer Rebecca Adlington he said she resembled: "Someone who's looking at themselves in the back of a spoon". But no, it gets worse, be very cautious about reading what follows.

Referring to her boyfriend, apparently he is very attractive compared to the poor girl in question, he said: "....I have deduced that Rebecca Adlington is very dirty".

Yes, that's all, no big deal to a well balanced human adult.

Now, if you are one of the 75 complainants would you please go back to your padded cell, take your medicine and leave TV and the real world to the grown ups and the sane. In other words piss off you hysterical arseholes.

If you are a rational, sane adult, then why not visit the show's website where you can buy a DVD of the bits even they didn't dare show on TV. What a present for some prudish politically correct tit you really want to piss off. Or you could just enjoy it, like a grown up.

If it's not your cup of tea, which it won't be for many, then just switch off or switch over, don't try and spoil it for everybody else.
