I'm outraged I am!

The Philipino gobment has registered a formal protest at Harry Enfield for trying to get his pet northen dog to mount a Filipino maid during one of their shows.

I don't see the problem. Everyone knows that Northerners can't breed with humans! :D

The scene, first broadcast on 26 September, was part of a running joke in which a family from the south of England treats a northern man like a pet dog.

"Our chums up the road wanted to see if they could mate their Filipino maid with our northerner," said Enfield's character as the maid danced provocatively in his garden.

After the performance failed to have the desired effect, Enfield shouted: "Come on, Clyde, mount her."
BBC linky

The Philippine Foundation said: "This particular sketch is completely disgraceful, distasteful and a great example of gutter humour."

It accused the BBC and the show of "inciting stereotyped racial discrimination, vulgarity and violation of the maid's human rights".

The sketch was "tantamount to racism and [the] worst sexual abuse and exploitation of the hapless young Filipina domestic worker employee," it added.
Here's the footage

The sketch was obviously taking the pish out of upper middle-class urbanites treating the rest of us with contempt and, as such, is sympathetic to the maid. But hey ho, the 'R WORD' has been deployed so none of that matters...

I see it as a surrealist comment on the dichotomy, nay paradigm of socially inverted discordance. What say you chaps? :wink:

Bloody Fillipinos, if they aren't dressing up in the oppsosite sexes clothes or cleaning the floors of hospitals they're complaining about stereotypes. The flaming cheek.

That sketch was the only one that made me laugh during the show.

If, perhaps, they didn't actively tolerate the sex industry in so many parts of their country, people might not be so quick to stereotype Filipino women as prostitutes.

Did he come on her tits?

And what exactly do the Phillipines stand proudly behind as being their great contribution to mankind?

But she was under 15 stone. Everyone knows it takes a fat bird in clothes three sizes too small, pished on wife beater and swamping in the street whilst tampng down the cheese and chips to turn a proper northener on.

God I miss home.

The best bit of that sketch was the posty trying to cop off with the filipino maid in the background, good drills.
