Point of order. Just who's left now that we can make jokes about ?
The English still seem to be fair game.

I remember Ronnie Barker saying that when they were planning to introduce a pair of dimwitted characters in The Two Ronnies, there was some discussion as to who they should be. To avoid complaints coming in about stereotyping, the decision was to make them yokels, the reasoning being that nobody would admit to being one.
