YA a mohel AICM5...er...actually, I think I'll forgo the prize this
time, thanks.

(BTW, did you hear about the incompetent mohel? He got the sack.

Aythengyeou. I'm here all week.)

Oh dear, oh dear. At first I thought: how very vulgar. But on reflection I
think you escaped by the skin of your teeth.

think you escaped by the skin of your teeth.
Interestingly, I had first and second thoughts too. I couldn't see the
sig on the post when I first read it and thought you had posted it,
for some reason. My reaction was that it was in a way disrespectful of
a Jewish (and Moslem) tradition. Perhaps stereotyping and
anti-semitic? Then I got to the sig and realised it was Sid and had
second thoughts that it was ok. Oh dear. Touchy? Me?

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.

No, I think that's a very reasonable reaction. Joking about the
traditions, practices, language etc. of a "group" (for want of a better
word) to which one belongs is fairly safe. Joking about those of other
groups is very risky and, IMO, best avoided.

I have probably quoted this here before from Joe Ide's excellent novel
IQ. A rather hapless white reporter asks a black LA gang leader why it
is acceptable for him to use the n-word but not for her. He replies,
"Because if a n***** calls me n*****, I know what he means. If you call
me n*****, you might mean n*****." [My expurgation.]

I think that sums it up as well as I've ever heard, although Kim
Andrews, late of this parish and still much missed, also put it very
well in a post here: "I have plenty of friends and family who are
welcome to call me a silly bitch. Some yob in the street had better not
try it."

They're perhaps not exact parallels, but the fundamental idea is the
same. Context is everything and as an outsider one's motives in saying
such things are far more open to question and hence liable to cause offence.

As someone who is half in and half out of this particular set, I thought
about and decided against posting a follow-up about your mohel's more
competent colleague who, although unsalaried, existed on gratuities.

Indeed she has. When she adapted "My Judy Garland Life" for
Nottingham Playhouse, there was a pre-event where she talked
about the work.

Good track record for radio drama. Radio acting is more specialised than
one might think. I recall Nelson’s bestie saying similar at Brighton
Festival, way back.

One might hope that the editors might also be chosen for their radio
experience, but I have had cause to wonder in recent times.

Quite so. And with an understanding that radio drama does NOT need
background music :(

Obviously TV work is slow this week.

I see other oddities - a lot of Troughtons too.
