    The fact that pornography exists is because some people like to watch it and they do watch it. Those that don't like it, don't watch it. Same rules apply.
    Agreed, that sort of comedy is about pushing boundaries. Also with without p0rwn0graphy, would VHS and even domestic broadband have been succesful lol.

    Next time I hear a joke, I'm going to run it past @localzuk to see if I'm allowed to laugh.

    I'll send a copy over to BBC3, they usually air rubbish anyway, so I'm sure this would qualify

    Well then as we've discussed, I'm well within my right to say that
    I mean more homegrown stuff, not the stuff they buy from American channels

    I'm sorry, but the inability to see comedy, where it so clearly is, renders you unintelligent!!!!

    Some of you guys need to lighten up a bit. A joke is that; a joke. If I decide to laugh at a comedian joking about disabilities, rape, murder etc then I'm well within my right to laugh. Does it make me a bad person? No. Does it make me unintelligent? What do you think?

    Totally agree, but by the same token, I have every right to my opinion.
