BBC apologises over Japan bomb jokes

boo fucking hoo.
Can someone remind me again why Japan got some instant sunshine?

It's a good job the Japanese embassy didn't hear the way my grandad refered to them

They would have been crying their eyes out

Have they actually apologised to the FEPOW'S yet?

I heard that someone in a meeting at my work was asked to stop refering to them as Japs as it was a racist term

Well something to dowith the Daily Mail having a space dedicated to stirring up hate of the BBC in every issue. BBC just issue appologies in the same worthless way.

I was company safety rep during the building of the Honda plant in swindon. We were all called to a snap safety meeting. Several Japnese managers were there when an Irish building contractor was called to account for a skip fire that had a gas cannister in it. When asked for his explanation he said "well there was a baang but it wasn't as big as the fooker in Hiroshima"!
Thanks to a very diplomatic interpreter he didn't have to go in the little hot box for a week nor did he have to apologise. but then he was Irish and they don't. No one ws coherent after that. Head design engineer on site could not speak tears of laughter running down his face, everyone else trying to think of dead puppies. Meeting ended and our over masters left. 3 2 1 Boom room exploded in laughter. Contractors who had spent the last few weeks snagging each others work livin the moment. Haaa I had forgot work could be fun.

A number of years ago a senior manager of a company I worked for refused point blank to attend a week-end meeting where Jap delegates would be attending even though it involved a multi-million pound contract. Hardly surprising really, considering he had previously been a guest of their's for several years and experienced their hospitality in Burma.

Because when you say sorry it makes everything all right.

e.g.

I reckon if you refine heroin for a living but you have a moral objection to alcohol you may be a Muslim.

Sorry, that was naughty of me for stereotyping. I shouldn't have typed that.

Wankers all around... Japs for complaining and """Brits""" for apologising.

A more appropriate response should have been: If you can't take a joke - don't fookin bomb other people's harbours!

Or as my Grandad said when shooting down Japs in WWII: "Watch out, there's a nip in the air."

Typical of the way perversion works.

Commit all the crimes against humanity...

When the plan goes tits north... wait few years.... play the victim.

The whole world seems to have gone completely touchy. Muslims wanting to kill cartoon artists, Japs getting upset at some pretty non-offensive jokes. Cue the WWF getting upset that we teach children to catch tigers in "eanie meanie miney moe".

Is it not more likely that someone at the Japanese Embassy or the trade co-operation/tourist board here "complained" to themselves, be it on their own auspices or by unseen direction from above?

This is so non-newsworthy that I am surprised it even made it to print/publication. No fucker in their right mind would give a monkeys about this. It wasn't even a funny joke.

More like it wasn't even a joke. Bounced off him? Was it a fucking Atom Bomb invented by Barnes Wallis?

I take it that Japanese Embassy doesn't know what is referred to when one talks about one's Jap's eye then. Or what one is referring when one talks about currys/chilli and the Jap flag. Accurate analogies in my book.


Sorry. So Sorry.

I saw the programme and don't even remember a joke being made about it. Some Jap had survived the Hiroshima bombing only to be put on a hospital train to Nagasaki... and survived that one as well! He was described as 'the unluckiest man in the world' and there were some gasps of amazement among the panel/audience, but that was about it. Nothing for the Japs to complain about and CERTAINLY nothing to apologise for.

As has been said; when they apologise for the bestial behaviour of their armed forces...
