Carol Thatcher Follows Jonathan Ross Out As BBC Purges Speech Impediments

by | 4th, February 2009

THATCHER. Thatcher. Thatcher. Out! Out! Out! It’s Carol Thatcher being ousted from the BBC for using the world golliwog in a non-ironical fashion.

Carol, better known as Cawol, follows Jonathan Ross (Woss) down the BBC rubbish chute.

Says Cawol: “I’m complete baffled by the fuss.”

Anorak is outraged. Old Mr Anorak, our patron, is founder of the Respect Rhotacism Round Table (WWWT).

Says a spokesperson for the cause:

“It beggaws belief that in 21st centuwy Bwitain celebwities are still fighting pwejudice. Rhotacism is the last gweat taboo, and the BBW should hang its head in shame. We had hoped that the dawk days of laughing at the afflicted Elmer Fudd were no more. We stand cowwected.”

Anorak has contacted the BBC and solicited this advice from a spokesman:

“Round the ragged rock of radio and TV broadcasting, there is no place for ragged rascals to run around rambling on.”

What next for Thatcher and Ross is uncertain. But expect a campaign for increased understanding for gollirogs…
