This has NOTHING to do with being PC! I commented on the title of the thread and am not in least PC! It is a totally unnecessary use of a word that has very real distressing connotations and is not the slightest bit relevant to a cartoon. It sounds ignorant to use it. I don't like the use of it in an old Police song either. Why some people seem dead against any kind of boundaries is beyond me!
So you agree that the "sex offenders line" joke should be censored? After all that is an unnecessary piece of humour that has connotations to rape.
