As Opposed To A Serious One ?

Here's a free clue: if you're complaining about not being taken seriously, try not to come out with a phrase as redundant as 'comedy jester'.

Still, the race-hustling dead beat does have a point - just not the one he thinks he does.
I feel like I am just there as a comedy jester to break the ice with Alan Shearer and Alan Hansen, who just do run-of-the-mill things. I can't do that any more. People want something different."....

[Wright] told Broadcast magazine: "Times are changing. I don't know how long young people are going to want to sit down and watch that same old "jacket, shirt and tie" format.
Yep, - that's his indictment of BBC Sport: poor dress sense.

The charge is moronic, but what else did you expect ? The real question is what it says about our achingly PC friends at the BBC that they chose a violent semi-literate imbecile as their avatar of black authenticity in the first place ?


Got to give the Beeb some credit though - they have moved fast to find a replacement who not only lacks the dubious record of violence and racial arson, but also manages to speak more coherently.
