Bad taste or Political Correctness gone stupid!

Is this really rascism?............i heard it and i thought it was actually funny......it was not directed at any one (unlike that tosser that called an A -league basketball team "nappy-headed hoes!", it was broadcasted on a comedy based breakfast show, yet gay activists and the black community are outraged........Why?

Hmmm. How can it be that when people say things that are offensive -- they act surprised when others are actually offended?!

so jokes about the rather favorable stereotype that black men have large penises are now "offensive?"

now i can't relate to being black, but i can relate to having a penis. and i must say, if someone kept making references to how large my wang was, i would not be offended.

You would most likely encourage such statements to continue, no?

Gay sex and black penises are no longer fit for public discussion?

How about we just stop talking about sex or penises all together. That will fix everything.

Grant Denyer is such a knob - it's almost refreshing to see him break out of his shit-eating grin plastic mould and fuck it up. And Merrick and Rosso say much worse, especially in their live shows. Well, Merrick does, anyway. It's sad that this comment is the only interesting thing to come out of Channel 7, Grant Denyer, Dancing with the Stars, the Logies, and breakfast radio. What a recipe for edge of your seat excitement!

An awesome 48hrs in Australian television. What with the Logies, Kate Ritchie as our greatest television personality, Ray Martin f*cking up, Grant Denyer f*cking up, Jessica Rowe getting f*cked, Home & Away honoured as our greatest drama - we are truly blessed in this country. No wonder they shaft Sopranos et al off the schedule. Anyone catch 20-1 ot It Takes Two last night??!?!? Awesome stuff!

Don't tell me Kate Ritchie won the gold. How embarrassing for them all. If I was John Wood or Lisa McCune, I'd develop sudden explosive agoraphobia from shame. I think I'd rather have a root canal than be nominated for, or win, Australia's biggest lack of relevance award.

Their shows (McCune & Wood) are mediocre. Our dramas really need a lot more cash allocated and a lot more time spent on writing. And a better awards event that actually recognises talent and real achievements, not just the faves of the (ever shrinking) TV Week readership demographic.

The Logies suck!

the only bit i watched (and i'm so glad i did not miss this bit!) was when Dave Hughes absolutely bagged the shit out of Kyle Saddlebags (I swear to God this guy is a deadset twit!).....after that unreal piece of TV i switched off.

Now.......this should be on TV!

Don't forget LAST CHANCE LEARNERS!!!

Holy shit, that has to be the stupidest TV show ever. I sometimes watch it just because I nearly piss myself laughing at how horrific it is.

That's what I mean...........it's like a Blonde firing up about how offended she is at the thought that Blondes "have more more fun!"
