Modern Christmas Carol of the Day

Modern Christmas Carol of the Day:


Modern Christmas Carol of the Day: The all-seeing all-knowing Tim Minchin was set to debut his latest controversy-baiting Christmas song on tomorrow night’s episode of The Jonathan Ross Show.
But, at the last minute, ITV’s director of television Peter Fincham ordered “Woody Allen Jesus” cut.

“He did this,” Minchin wrote on his blog, “because he’s scared of the ranty, sh*t-stirring, right-wing press, and of the small minority of Brits who believe they have a right to go through life protected from anything that challenges them in any way.”

On the one hand, because “it’s 2011,” Minchin says he’s “really f*cking disappointed.” But on the other, because it’s 2011, he could take the footage of the song and upload it to YouTube so people who wanted to hear the song could.

Progress!
