It's no joke for this comedian

He was asked to sign a form prior to performing which presumably removed most of his material.

The form stated: 'By signing this contract, you are agreeing to our no-tolerance policy with regards to racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia or anti-religion or anti-atheism.'

Laughing at ourselves is surely a healthy thing but what if it's seen as laughing at others? Are we becoming snowflakes?

Perhaps the 'contract' was the Script ;-P

The old nursery rhyme that I heard at least 70 years ago comes to mind...

...sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.

It was always 'names' in the one I've known all my life, but there is a version that uses 'words' and a host of variations on the rhyme.

Sorry, I'm older than you and something of a pedant.

I understand that it has been misquoted so often that some people believe that your version is the correct one

I note it was debated on Question Time, but we were ahead of the curve.

Both are correct

Sticks and Stones
