Not funny

Not really a joke but dealing with Islam And Humour.

Comedian and writer Ben Elton has said the BBC is too "scared" to broadcast jokes about Muslims for fear of provoking radical Islamists.
Elton, in an interview with Christian magazine Third Way, added that the broadcaster would "let vicar gags pass but would not let imam gags pass".
He said fear rather than "moral sensibilities" fuelled decisions about what material was appropriate.
A BBC spokeswoman said: "No subject is off limits for BBC comedy."
