It was a crass joke - I thought we were all about crass jokes here - but maybe it was a bit too crass. For that, I do apologize. I did go to Catholic school, but nothing like what I suggested would ever be tolerated, neither by my parish, nor by my parents. For us, it seemed to be always present on television and in the papers, but I believe most people saw it for what it really was and were appalled by it.
That's okay - I blame Tip O'Neill, Ted Kennedy (and the Daily Mail) for fucking up UK perceptions.
