Turned Out Nice Again

Gay Ice Cream?

Recommended Posts

One of the former Top Gear numpties is in trouble with the PC police, in a row that his former employer seems understandably keen to publicize.

TV presenter Richard Hammond has been criticised after making a joke about eating ice cream being gay.

He was responding to a comment made by Jeremy Clarkson on The Grand Tour.

Talking to an audience, co-host Clarkson points at a photo of a Volvo's interior and says: "The only problem is that in one of those, you couldn't enjoy a chocolate Magnum ice cream."

Richard Hammond replied: "It's all right, I don't eat ice cream. It's something to do with being straight."

Cue a minor tsunami of hurt and outrage across social media and the press.

How much further can the bar for "offensive speech" be lowered, I wonder?

if miley cyrus or lady gaga sings through a dildo microphone or eats cum-flavoured ice cream,that would be a bit suspect.

ice cream itself is not gay,unless licked provocatively.

 

besides, what's a chocolate magnum?..is that innuendo?

It was a quip, and nothing more, and nothing should be read into it!

Years ago I recall a girlfriend's father's priceless north east wisdom..."you never see two men sitting together in a cake shop".

He's right, real men prefer savoury.

 

Swilling ale and eating the pickled eggs!

Didn't realise ice creams were gay.  Every Saturday I visit and Italian ice cream place for a couple of scoops in a cone.  I am gradually working my way through their flavours.  I wonder if everyone has me down as a raving homo?

I used to like a nice banana split or Knickerbocker glory !! 

Don't eat much dairy these days but sometimes a wee treat - got myself a hard chocolate coated ice cream from McDonald's last night. 

Remember back in the day you could buy this hardening sauce by itself and make your own ones at home ?

I must be a raging flamer !:huh:

It's the bbc again - enough said then.

Amazon clearly desperate for publicity and will try any old ruse and ploy.  So desperate that they'll even involve the holiday stalwart ice cream.  Mind you that sort of thing didn't do Cadbury's Flake any harm - or did it.

ask john leslie...he was the bloke who was knobbing the cadbury's flake girl...katrina something IIRC...as for the supposed rape allegation, I seem to remember both of them co-presentling this morning on ITV,and there was definitely a bit of "gold blend" sexual chemistry between them.
