Thursday Thought – Chaser

4 06 2009

Thursday Thought lives on!

I think there is a very fine line between witty satire and inappropriate, offensive humour.

And I think that line is all about your audiences understanding and view of the target of your satire.

I think the Chaser boys had the wrong target with this stunt AND misread their audiences view of organisations like the Make a Wish Foundation.

Making fun of world leaders is probably a lot safer.

Have they shot their new season to pieces? Can the come back from this? Will all be forgiven?

I watched the replay on ABC2 tonight to find that the offending segment had been unceremoniously dumped. Sounds like it was for the best.
