What an arse!
And last night, on Extras, Stephen Merchant's character was also making inappropriate remarks about a midget.
I spot a trend.
Or maybe not a trend, because this kind of p.c.-mocking humour is now mainstream to the point of becoming bland.
I think I'm getting tired of it.
I'm not going to try and deconstruct it because it would make my brain hurt, but isn't there a case for saying these guys are having it both ways?
I like Extras. Last week's episode with David Bowie was sublime. But this week? Bring on the midget, bring on the Down's syndrome kid; make jokes about them (heh, heh, heh, mongs gurgle when they eat) but turn it round so the joke is really on the jokers- ironic, eh? And then have Gervais kick the midget unconscious.
