    I've not been through all the threads to see if what she said has been discussed.
    Are we in danger of completely losing the ability to joke about anything just in case someone, somewhere gets offended?

    By the power of Grayskull......
    Suggesting acid is thrown in a person's face isn't funny,irrespective of the intention or how its dressed up.

    I'm not sure how anyone can find that difficult to comprehend?

    On the wider issue of outrage/offence......yes,you're correct....at times,it's gotten a bit silly.

    No. Different issues here though. If you are really asking if Jo Brand was offensive in what she said then no, in the context of what she said and where. Is that what you are really driving at or is this a wider question, in which case it may be difficult to respond meaningfully as the thread will soon be overun with people complaining about not being able to say paki shop anymore, or the equivalent thereof

    Listen, Can you smell something?
    Unfunny female comic says something to remain relevant shock.

    Bit different from her menopause I suppose.

    Didn't she used to be the lead singer from The Cure?
