Intrepid Optimist is the place where I can share my stories; fact, fiction and thoughts from the past and present. It’s Written by myself for people who believe adventure knows no age
I am just recovering from a near heart attack, brought on by my howling with laughter at one of Scottish comedian, BillyConnelly’s more ribald jokes. When I eventually calmed down, I found myself bemoaning what is probably the end of the belly or dirty laugh. Can someone tell me an innocent or decent joke which will provoke a genuine hearty, belly laugh?
Our right, and the choice to laugh at what one considers funny, be it innocent, bawdy, crude or downright offensive should not be dictated to us by the so-called, Christian, fundamentalists. Unfortunately, the English language is now being censored by the likes of Google, Facebook, the other social media organizations and their unworldly, naive young employees, who are trying to deny us the right to freedom of speech.
It is said that history repeats itself. If so how long will it be before the lunatic, political correctness fringe will be censoring what we read? Ancient legends and children’s fairy tales have already being rewritten to give them happy endings, regardless of their authentic historic origins. Words too, are vanishing. How soon before the word, black, will disappear from our dictionaries?
Look at the uncensored comedy clubs and cabarets, where free speech and opinion is still to be heard, are springing up across the UK and Western Europe. If you need to see what will happen when we are compelled, contrary to our nature, to accept outlandish innovations, you only have to look at what ensued both during and after the puritanical Victorian age and American prohibition, to see what happens when what is enjoyed is driven underground.
