You know freedom of speech is in a dire state when you have to defend someone’s right to make a dick joke.
In case you missed this story: Michael McFeat is a Scottish man who worked for a mine in Kyrgyzstan. He wrote on Facebook that the nation’s favourite dish (which looks a lot like a horse’s penis) looks like… well, a horse’s penis.
Instead of getting a couple of shares and then disappearing forever, his remark outraged the people of Kyrgyzstan. The miners acted like minors and went on strike over McFeat’s comment. Even worse, the government arrested him and toyed with the idea of sending him to jail for five years. Eventually they just deported him.
Now, I believe that no article or stand-up set or conversation with my increasingly disappointed mother is complete without a good dick joke. I also quite like to needle the easily offended. In fact, in solidarity with McFeat, I’d like to offer these additional descriptions of chuchuk for him to use at his own discretion:
‘The world’s worst haemorrhoid cushion.’
