Craig Ferguson emphatically not apologetic

By johnboy - 2 May 2012 13

Over the weekend the comprehension impaired at the Canberra Times got very excited that US late night talk show host Craig Ferguson had apologised for his Canberra bashing.

Last night, in pretty good form, he explained that “a Canberra newspaper” had failed to understand him.

He suggests if we’re still offended we should concentrate on something else. Like trying to stop the larger Australian lesbian from sitting on the smaller one.

Craig and RiotACT on the same page now.

Why do Canberrans get so offended when somebody makes a joke about Canberra anyway?! My god – get over it, be proud of your city, and be thick-skinned enough to not feel like you need to go on a rampage every time somebody makes a joke about it …

Agreed, though I think what gets most people in this city is that Canberra gets blamed for the decisions of the government they themselves elected. Most people knocking Canberra believe that all the politicians live in Canberra, and dont understand that Canberra is a territory not a state – and hence actually have the least amount of electoral representation by population of any state/territory …

Craig who?

oh I dunno, an escalation of Craig Ferguson v. The Canberra Times would be a beautiful thing.

This is tiring. For such an up-and-coming comedian he has a very limited book of jokes ..

If Craig Ferguson comes to Canberra I volunteer to be ACT ambassador. We can play weeknight mixed netball against women who wear buns because they’re stressed about something a Minister wants. It’ll be amaiiizing.

Ferguson’s having fun, we’re having fun, his audience seem to be having fun, Canberra’s getting more publicity than it could ever dream of.

Now it’s just the Canberra Times getting beaten up.

So it’s all gold where we’re standing!

Y’know, if The Simpsons poked fun at Canberra, we’d laugh and think we’d made it to the big time. If South Park combined Canberra with fart jokes, we’d laugh and say how cutting edge SP is. But the long running joke that is the alleged Ferguson poke at Canberra has stopped being a joke. If anything it’s only proven how humourless Canberra is, This should have died the day after the original swipe was broadcast. We should have laughed, said, “They don’t get it,” and went on with our lives. But somehow someone has conspired to to keep bringing it up like a dead dog rises to the surface of a lake, to the point that it’s now not that Canberra is a joke, but more that Canberra can’t take a joke. Enough is enough. Drop it.

Just ignore the silly man and he will go away. Stop feeding the rodents and minor/pseudo celebs with your attention and they too will disappear.
I am proud of my inability to recognise anyone on the front cover of any magazine or appearing as a “star” with whom an expert might dance or as a “celebrity” who wants to lose weight or not be fired. There are many better things to do, like clipping one’s toenails.

Oh my aching sides, the comprehension impaired local newspaper is trying to justify their flawed interpretation.

Now that’s new levels of painful!

Lesbians. Now there’s common ground.
