I like this guy. I want him to be my priest. He tells great jokes.

I bet when faced with alternative theater he would call it AIDS in a van. :)

Wow. A bit harsh I think.

The article makes it sound like he didn't call Harry Potter gay at all but used the phrase "the only gay in the village" to mean that Harry wasn't unique. Doesn't it?

edit: sorry, posted that before I saw K_G's guardian version.

They objected to "bum", "bogey", "fart" and "pee" ?!?

I could understand if they were running a perfectly justifiable campaign to get "Dickhead & Dumbo" of the TV, but a one off talk where the chap is just speaking in terms the audience understands ? Sounds a little harsh. A warning to tone it down should have sufficed.

He started to use the F-wordWhat ? "Fart" ? :) Oh, ok then. Just so long as it meant he used it once, not that it looked as though he might.

Must be a public school. He was talking about Harry Potter being gay and the pupils became 'excitable' :lol:
