I beg, plead and supplicate that you do not take offence, but it _was_ funny. The best comedy is always on the edge, challenging our preconceptions and testing the boundaries of our comfort zones.

Despite the risk of being seen to be patronising and belittling

Comedy is the other face of tragedy. The more you laugh, the more you have to speculate about how much terror lies hidden. (Paul Theroux)

It would have been much more believable if it were the current changelog, but Pat V. may have had his inbox flooded with that one. It will happen one day tho. I expect it in the next few years.
