I saw a cow with a jumper on earlier. It was a Jersey cow

The one next to it didn’t have one. It was Fresian

No.

Just to be devil’s advocate - is it slightly less bad when it’s on Jonathon Ross, who sort of actively uses his speech impediment for comic effect? Like, he’d be absolutely fine with the joke.

I get that it might not be cool for others who suffer from it but then I also feel the vast majority of them would also make light of it.

No, but probably be mindful of people who may have such impediments with their speech. He may well have made it as part of his character and been successful with that, but many, many others would have been bullied for it throughout their lives for theirs

Think there’s a big difference between people who suffer with these things choosing to β€˜own it’ and laugh at themselves and other people using it as a punchline. Often people use humour as a defence mechanism too, making the joke on themselves before others have a chance to.

Someone who wrote for Jo Brand said the reason she always came out and instantly made a self-deprecating joke about her weight was to beat the hecklers to it. Worked.

That’s definitely something I find has worked in the past, for example when I used to get loads of abuse while throwing people out of pubs, just takes all the weaponry off them.

I tend to mock my own baldness whenever I meet someone new. For some reason people still find that shit fair game so I just take it out of play.

I remember when Chris Evans told a version of this on his Radio 1 Breakfast Show (was β€œSpielberg making a film about great composers played by action heroes” as the setup). Still fundamentally great, let’s be honest.

I remember this from a Bo Burnham vine

Did I tell you about the time I bought shoes from my drug dealer? I don’t know what he laced them with but I was tripping all day.
