The Chaser brouhaha got me thinking about bad taste humour, evoking memories of the early '80s. Within days of Azaria Chamberlain's reputed abduction by a dingo a workmate ambled up to me casually enquiring, "Have you heard that they've reopened the investigation into Harold E. Holt's disappearance?" adding after a perfectly timed pause, "Yeah, they're looking for a dingo with a snorkel." That joke probably wouldn't have gone down too well if aired on national TV.

Well, that wasn't funny back then either, Beckie.

I don't know Abu, I hadn't heard it before and I laughed.
