Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Found this wandering around. It brought a smile, it's tagged Bush and The Beatles and The Pope

Is this offensive? I laughed. Was that very wrong of me?

Wow. Thats so funny. Havent laughed so much for a while. Thanks for that. Probably not PC and folks will complain but PC folks often complain about most things that the supposedly offended target group are either not bothered about or laughing at as well.

I suppose I should say something after seemingly having derailed the thread. It dates back to at least the mid-90s. I know that because I first heard it in around '96. I found it funny. A "one joke" funny, yes, but funny. A caricature of certain types of youth, just as there are caricatures of stereotypes all over comedy. Sacha Baron Cohen's Ali G and Borat are good examples. There were those who thought those racist, others that thought they offered a mirror to society. It was not the item that got Imus "sacked". Those were comments about a female basketball team in April 2007. I put sacked in quotes for an interesting reason. Most people would consider sacked would mean your employer let you go. CBS, who did the "sacking" insisted his contract be bought out before he could work elsewhere. Within six months he was back on air. One of those leading the charge for him to be fired, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, was appearing on Imus' new show less than a year after the comments he found so offensive.

Anyway, I apologise to - though disagree with - Parlance. I did not mean to offend. To those who didn't find it particularly funny, hey, that's how humour works.

Now, after derailing the laughs thread, can I ask us to get back back on topic? I won't say anything else on this clip other than what I have just said. Somebody find something funny but not controversial!
