Fact times importance equals news (The Chris Morris Thread)

They're showing the Brass Eye paedophile special on More 4 right now. There was a hell of a long disclaimer before it started.

I missed the start, what did they say? "We appreciate that your children getting splatted by a roboplegic wrong-cock is no laughing matter"?
Don't be thick in front of me.

Oh, I can't remember exactly now. Something like:

"As the appearance of Richard Blackwood will demonstrate, this is clearly a programme made some time ago. As such, we would appreciate it if you could refrain from complaining about it again, as we had quite enough of that shit last time. It's meant to be a joke you know. Like a comedy or something. It's funny but offensive. Funfensive as we like to say at Channel 4 HQ. Also, if you want to return your Hot Fuzz DVDs after seeing Simon Pegg playing a filthy paedophile then please feel free to do so."

I keep thinking this is a Fast Times at Ridgemont High thread.

I remember - the Daily Mail kicked up a stench about it last time and then within 5 days ran an article about "where have all the good comedians gone" citing John Cleese as the sort of good comedian that they wanted to see more of.

Because Life of Brian didn't cause a kerfuffle at all. Numptys.
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

I looked him up the other day. He seems to be a pretty fair guy.
Toot toot.
