"With every bullet so far " Razz Laughing
I like that kind of humour. Its cruel but, they were up for it & you could see they were trying not to laugh themselves. Reminds me of another comedy, a UK one......

{{{ I think comedy is one of the best vehicles for exploring social issues- especially relationship ones- whether that's marriage or racism.
Whilst I wouldn't want such a show now, in its time it was not only valid and topical it was useful in the UK at breaking down those social barriers and lack of understanding- I'd class Ain't Half Hot Mum, Alf Garnett, Rising Damp and even Steptoe and Son as all falling into that category of exploring socially difficult, awkward or taboo subjects head on. In a way straight drama cant approach or touch.
Talking comedy and social subjects- this one cracked me up- ps let me know if you need a translator! }}}

I sometimes wonder what the police think about the portrayal they are getting ? One of them must see these skits ? This is obviously a send up but, it does reflect the situation of the day. Its amazing what you can get away with by using comedy. Give it to the audience straight & there will be write ups & complaints before the show's finished ! Smile Down here in 'softie South Land' there's pretty much zilch respect for the old Bill. And I don't envy their job or even want a part of it.
