Those were some lame jokes.

vudukungfu: Those were some lame jokes.


Seriously. He should be apologizing for how bad they are, not how offensive they are.

You must have a heart of stone, if you can't laugh at the idea of some guy flying through the air with no legs after a big explosion.

I"m more offended by how unfunny those jokes are
 
2012-08-31 11:12:09 AM  
Remember, making joke is no longer funny business.

I see what you did there...

*Snert* - I wonder what his fark tag is...

/ Sounds like he is exploiting the patented brand of welcome to fark humour

He didn't have much to say about it after Channel 4 cut him off at the knees.

Heh, I wondered how many posts it would take.

As a rule of thumb, I'm willing to bet he won't be holding down the fort at BBC.
He will have to go Dutch on the rest of his dates.

I tend to have more respect for people cracking jokes at the expense of the powerful, and not of the weaker members of our society.

If he does go dutch, I wouldn't be surprise to find that they feel gypped.

'The Queen hasn't cracked a smile since Diana died.'

I'll admit I chuckled at this one.

The insulted British highjumper was going to sue, but he didn't have a leg to stand on.
 
2012-08-31 11:24:58 AM  
Frankie really doesn't discriminate. He'll say offensive things about pretty much anybody.
 
2012-08-31 11:25:02 AM  
I have never heard of him.
 
2012-08-31 11:25:29 AM  
if we don't support him then the terrorists will win!!!

These jokes were offensive!! Wouldn't it be funny if that guy got raped by like, five guys right now... like right now?
 
2012-08-31 11:29:39 AM  
WTF does that even mean?

I was always a big fan of the wheelchair hurdles myself. Thwak........thwak.........thwak.

"Wow, Austrian Paralympians seem a lot more able-bodied than most regular Scottish people," was okay.

I thought his stuff was pretty funny.

Depends on what you mean by "that".

Man I love Frankie Boyle's humor. Spent last night watching Mock the Week clips, actually.

/Pretty sure I'm a bad person for finding him hilarious
//Pretty sure I don't give a fark

He also mocked the appearance of Britain's Olympic double gold-medallist Rebecca Adlington in the run-up to the London games.

He tweeted: 'I worry that Rebecca Adlington will have an unfair advantage in the swimming by possessing a dolphin's face.'

Now that IS funny!

Clearly that's just fair comment.

heh...I didn't, now I do. Thanks for pointing me to the short bus.

There are ways to make tasteless jokes. This is not one of those ways.

That was pretty weak, but I do like his proposal for Thatcher's funeral -- "give everyone in Scotland a shovel and we'll dig a hole so deep we can hand her over to Satan personally."

Some Romanis see the word 'gypped' as offensive, it implies that gypsies 'gyp'.
 
2012-08-31 11:46:03 AM  
That's what Frankie Boyle does, he offends people who've got something up their bottom. His jokes were much funnier when he was on MTW.
 
2012-08-31 11:47:33 AM  
How could you be offended by a joke not being funny? That doesn't even make sense.
 
2012-08-31 11:48:29 AM  
What exactly, after years and years of Frankie Boyle's routines, did they expect? Sunshine and rainbows?

'Apparently the Saudi Arabian Paralympic team is mainly thieves'

I don't care who you are; that's some funny stuff right there.

Did you hear about the swimmer with no arms or legs, I believe they call him Bob.

It is so funny I expected him to end it with Waka! Waka!

FTA: Foul-mouthed comic Boyle, who is a recovering alcoholic, has almost a million followers on Twitter but has upset many with his shockingly callous and merciless brand of humour.

If you're berating him for insensitivity, why point out the fact that he's a recovering alcoholic?

It's kinda like ABC and Monday Night Football hiring of Rush Limbaugh. You knew they hired him so he'd say something offensive so they could take a stand and fire him.
 
2012-08-31 12:09:24 PM  
*shrug* Pushing the envelope is what Frankie Boyle does.
 
2012-08-31 12:09:52 PM  

wellreadneck: If you're berating him for insensitivity, why point out the fact that he's a recovering alcoholic?


Also the Daily Fail is unable to comprehend that Boyle has twitter followers *because* he makes offensive jokes, not despite of it.
