Arrest us, PC Police

Innuendo is OUT, according to today’s Irish Daily Mirror, because the PC Police has said so. They say it’s sexist and outdated.

Whereas I don’t agree with the above statement, I do think a lot of the Carry On films and Great British Bake Off nudge-nudge sense of humour is silly and tasteless - but a lot of it makes me laugh out loud regardless. Sorry not sorry.

The listeners of the Early Breakfast got in touch with their favourite instances of innuendo, most of which were complete accidents. Some were not read out on air because innocent and all as they were meant, the PC police are everywhere and they’re always listening in case they miss a chance to be offended.

  • “Morning Paula! On the subject of innuendo, I remember years ago in the Christian Brothers Secondary School,  our regular Latin teacher was absent and we had a woman substitute teacher take over (which was unheard of then in a male dominated school.) At the time we had to translate Latin passages into English which had never been seen before, Anyway she could never understand why we erupted into uncontrollable laughter when her opening sentence was take out yere Unseens!” - Sean in Tralee


  • “Paula did you ever hear about Ken Brown commentating on golfer Nick Faldo and his caddie Fanny Sunneson lining-up shots at the Scottish Open? He said: Some weeks Nick likes to use Fanny, other weeks he prefers to do it by himself!”
