Frankie Boyle In Trouble Again

A celebrity slapper, without any apparent talent or ability complains about a very funny comedian and an investigation is launched. Oh, and 50 people, from a population of 70,000,000 complained too.

Frankie Boyle told an admitedly rather dodgy joke and the self-righteously indignant mob goes into overdrive, yet again.The gist of the joke was that Jordan and Peter Andre were in a legal battle over custody of their disabled son, the loser gets to keep him. Tasteless? Probably. Funny? It was to me. If you are easily offended don't watch Frankie Boyle, it's quite simple really.

If all it takes is 50 people and a rough old publicity seeker with big boobs to have a TV comedian investigated by officialdom, we could have some real fun. Personally I find Jordan more offensive than Frankie Boyle. I'm sure I could find 50 others who feel the same, so next time she's on telly it's onto the official complaints line methinks.

I think the jokes a bit much, but what on earth are they going to investigate him for?

Exactly, it's madness. There were things said about the Pope when he visited that I found deeply offensive, but free speech means sometimes being offended.

The Frankie Boyle joke is hilarious, frankly, but it is not original.

For example, in The Simpsons, Marge asked Lisa and Bart why they were fighting and Lisa said they were fighting over who loved their father most. The fight then continued with Lisa shouting "You do!" and Bart shouting "No, you do!"

And it is quite possible that there are older versions than this.

Never seen The Simpsons, but I doubt very few things are absolutely original.

ho! Ho! HO!

Gregg Sir, I hope you are well. I watched that episode of Frankie Boyle & I thought what he had to say about the late Jade Goody was actually worse than what he said about Jordan! All the same, everyone knows what Frankie Boyle is like.
