‘FROM Chalky downwards, Jim Davidson has created characters and comic situations that have many of us peeling back our pointy white hoods and laughing our silly heads right off.

No laughing matter

But the Mirror brings news that not all of Jim’s gags might be his own work.

One of Jim’s original jokes was, apparently, spawned by comedian Jimmy Carr.

Carr’s gag goes: ‘Someone came up to me last week and complained about that joke. Quite a big-boned girl. She said, ‘I think you’re fattist’. I said, ‘No, I think you’re fattest’.’

It’s a joke that is barely worth the repeating – which makes it all the more interesting that, having congratulated Carr on his bravura performance, Davidson told a similar gag.

In the comic genius of the cockney funster, the joke went: ‘This big fatty weebles-wobbles fat-arsed bird came up and said: You’re fattist’, and I said ‘No, you’re the fattest’.’

Carr wants Davidson to apologise. And, what’s more, the ‘VOICE OF THE DAILY MIRROR’ says that Carr’s already begun legal action.

Although, as yet, Vanessa Feltz is not demanding a credit…’
