The Dangers of Pantos

The Dangers of PantosTwenty miles to London, and still no sign of Dick!

Yes folks, tis pantomime season again...where men dress as women, the principle boy is a girl (in a remarkably short skirt) and the leading lady gets to kiss the principle boy (who is a girl).

Only in Britain would people take young children to see such shenanigans (spelling???) wonder we have a few sexual hang ups.

Anyhoo, for once, Nanny doesn't mind about such cross dressing lesbian type issues.

What she does object to is the time honoured tradition of throwing sweets into the audience.

For why?

I hear you ejaculate...can I say ejaculate?

Simple, the sweets might hit the head of a child.

Organisers of the Babes in the Woods and Robin Hood production at Gorleston Pavilion Theatre, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, are shitting themselves that they will be sued for negligence if youngsters are hit in the face by a stray chocolate.

The theatre is not covered by insurance for any injuries from sweets thrown by the pantomime dame, Mark Hudson.

Instead, the sweets will be dropped into the front row and passed around by ushers.

Complete madness!

Oh no it's not!

In keeping with the spirit of the occasion I wrote this article whilst wearing an oversized dress, and elaborate makeup....well actually, that's a normal Saturday morning in the Frost household, but maybe we won't go into that!

    Where did you find her?

    It all comes down to the following:-

    1) Too many people falling for the injury compensation culture. Too many solicitors jumping on the same bandwagon. The costs of these claims are passed on to policy holders, hence the cost of insurance these days.

    2) Too many 'Elf'n'Safety officers, each empire building and finding fault just to justify their well paid positions.

    Risk can be managed without the need to go to silly lengths which is the norm these days. Life is a risk. It does our society no good at all to wrap everyone in cotton wool all the time. As a child I fell out of trees, fell off swings etc etc it educated me to the hazards of everyday life. I touched hot things, only once as the mild burn taught me about the dangers of touching the fire guard. These are simple lessons of life in my view.
    Where do we draw the line?

    Just a minute ...

    A bloke dressed up as a woman offering sweets to kiddies? I'm surprised THAT was not the reason for banning the practice.

    Maybe it is just the theatre getting fed up with having to clear up dropped sweets and their wrappers and clean up sticcky seats and claims for dry cleaning from irate customers.

    Anyway all kids are too fat as we know from the media so the last thing any self respecting 'entertainment' business would want to be accused of would be adding to the obesity crisis.

    They are probably worried about long term funding as well. The council supported theatre in one of the cities near me closed abruptly last week when the council withdrew funding. I suspect there may be ulterior motives.

    Just wanted to say that Gordon Brown is an hypocritical, mendacious, cowardly, snot-gobbling twat. Konow its off topic. but it can't be repeated often enough or widely enough.

    BTW - his party members reflect their leaders qualities.

  5. On principle, Ken, please don't get your principals in a twist.

    Round up all the ambulance chasers in this country, and SHOOT EM....

  7. Better still, write a new pantomime about the health and safety pantomime.
    It's called 'culture', and it's the method they have been using against us from Dickens on down.

    I can't believe that Nanny is going to be satisfied just to set the Elfin Safety people on to theatre managers.

    Surely the Auntie Racist Mob are going to be out in force prosecuting Pantomimists for making people laugh at their wicked representations of villainous Arabs, Chinese, Persons of enlarged Growth and other repressed peoples?

    Isn't this after all, the season of goodwill? Shouldn't our thespians be showing some of that goodwill to the persecuted minoroties in our society?

    And if they fail to do so, shouldn't they be flogged, or beheaded, or have a few limbs cut off, like really civilised society's do to their miscreants?

    Surely Nanny would be happy to allow a cross-dressing male to hand out sweets to underage children as the thespian is reflecting, in a artistic sense, the 'lifestyle choice' of the trans-gendered who happen to have an attraction to 'age inapropriate' persons.

    Tolerance and diversity is all - unless, of course, you happen to disagree with nanny.
