Stupid bitch of the month

An occasional series. Feeling offended on behalf of the minorities, or of women, even when they don't feel offended themselves is a common politically-correct occurrence these days. But at least the presumed victims usually exist -

"The BBC launched an investigation after a listener complained that Samantha, the imaginary scorer on long-running Radio 4 comedy show I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, was being treated as 'a sexual object'. The programme, which has been on the air for more than 40 years, features comics including Jack Dee and Barry Cryer who regularly refer to the fictional 'lovely Samantha' - who does not actually exist. After a listener complained about two episodes in July last year which she said included 'highly sexist, offensive and harmful' references to Samantha, The BBC Trust's Editorial Standards Committee looked into the allegations before deciding not to proceed."

    1. Actually she's just one of my stock stupid bitches. I think of her as a classic politically-correct but utterly functionless council officer, who doesn't care about her poor appearance or unhelpful attitude because the public have nowhere else to go - the council have a monopoly.
