The Week In Culture
Friday, 5 December 2008
The realm of self-righteous offence has expanded
further with the news that the BBC is under fire
for having broadcast the inaudible noise John
Barrowman's (left) genitals make when exposed to
a microphone. The offending articles weren't
described and can have only had an adverse effect
on listeners who tried to imagine them, which is
their problem, not the BBC's. I don't want an
apology, but I would love an explanation of
Barrowman's clarification "I didn't take the
whole thing out, but I got my fruit and nuts
out." If the fruit and nuts were out, what was
left behind? And what would Humphrey Lyttelton,
late grand-master of the filthy mental image,
make of this new anxiety at the BBC? His account,
in one broadcast, of how Samantha was going out
for an ice cream with an Italian friend and
looking forward to "licking the nuts off a large
Neapolitan" would now, presumably, be accompanied
by an instantaneous expression of regret.
LOL! has to be one of the best commentaries on this-ever! LOL!
Precious and rare all Love is, gender matters not.
