I sometimes wonder if there will ever be real humour again, after all most of it is in making someone look ridiculous for real or perceived habits, beliefs or cultural custom etc. The very things that you’re not supposed to do or say, or even think nowadays. Until we have funny people who can make powerful people look silly not much will change.

The written complaint about the lumberjack song is a nice trailer on another showing of the lumberjack song.

Thanks for the memories.
Those were the days when people laughed at the very thought of men becoming women.
Nowadays men say they are a woman and we are supposed to agree.
Nah. They can F@#k off!

It used to be called a ‘send up’. A lampooning joke, which no-one took seriously.
Whatever happened to them?

A send up could also contain a few home truths.

In the hands of the wrong people, ill-intentioned, they were not always benign.

But gee they were funny, even if sometimes you said oh, that’s going a bit far.

So much excellent political sending up too with the Pythons.

Here’s Karl Marx – on his way to a beautiful lounge suite in The Communist Quiz.
