    May have seen the story about something something Frankie Boyle something something uproar something royal family something something insert exaggeration of emotion something something a dozen complaints to Ofcom came flooding in something something.

    From what I see, all he's done is excellently trolled the BBC, then done a set that raises no eyebrows. When he gets booed when he tells one Queen joke, immediately after trolling the BBC, it seems half of them are doing it to play along, they're all laughing again as he finishes ****ging off the Queen.

    The trolling and Queen joke:



    The rest, and a little more BBC trolling. This all seemed less offensive then I figured it would be. For example he does mention Pistorius, but not the murder:



    I note how papers seem to be telling us that the main offensiveness comes from his mocking of hierarchy (Queen, Middleton, Pope) while the actual most offensive jokes (dead woman, Saville, Mel B) get a line in the middle of the article, if at all. Sod those guys, look what he said about God's breasts!

    I didn't find any of that funny but that doesn't mean I find it offensive. He's a shock Jock (pun intended) so what do you expect? What were people seriously expecting? He's almost at the same level as Bernard Manning these days.
