Too Nutty To Be Naughty
Too nutty to be naughty: Now then, what does that phrase mean? I thought of Kenny Everett who managed to get away with far more on prime time national TV than most people would have. Not least the character portrayed here, "Cupid Stunt", whose malapropism was missed by TV bigwigs and even by the TV clean up campaigner Mary Whitehouse who was more concerned by Hot Gossip, the suggestive dancing group on the same programme. Everett even managed to string Cliff Richard up (literally). So be cheerful for Kenny Everett, it was all done in the best possible taste.
