I imagine anyone trying to make a living as a comedian may have to chose their words more carefully, personally I find most PC stuff so ridiculous it's a good source for humour :laugh:

I refuse to be PC and no longer post on one site because I had an hilarious joke removed on the altar of PC.Think it’s on here somewhere.

I think there are a significant number of people nowadays who must spend their life looking for something to be offended about.

It's not harder to be funny these days, just a lot easier to offend someone who is looking to be offended. Having worked abroad back in the day, as the immigrant I know I was the but of various jokes, as were all Expats, but we just ignored it and it soon stopped.

The jokes between Scandinavians were always funny to me. Unless you’re on the losing end of them. Very painful. :laugh:

I think humour is subjective. I find a lot of “humour” that some folk find funny is too contrived or coarse for my taste but I do chuckle at a bit of observational humour or a bit of subtle, witty repartee.

I don’t really understand all this angst and anger about “political correctness” , either - maybe the concept of what constitutes “political correctness” is subjective too - the meaning of “political correctness” has changed a lot since the phrase was first coined, so I try to avoid using it because I think it’s a fairly useless term that means different things to different people.

It seems to me that it’s usually the folk who object to something they call “political correctness” who keep banging on about it all the time - and I never really know what they are on about.
