back to article BBC flashes Kylie Minogue's minge at innocent kiddies

We're obliged today to the concerned Reg readers* who alerted us to the latest example of why licence-fee-driven TV is nothing more than a vehicle to punt pornography to impressionable minds who might otherwise be out riding their bikes and playing conkers: Kylie Minogue renamed Kylie Minge on BBC website For the record, …

    Well...

    That was a bit of a let-down.

    Well...

    Typing "Kylie Minge" into Google returns this very story, and two stories about this story; perhaps I am out of touch, but Google is getting faster and faster these days.

    Minge???

    There is actually a beer called "ginger minge" (the beermats and labels are considered highly collectable). But language changes. In Edwardian polite society, a certain word beginning with c was acceptable language, whereas "hell", "damn" and "blast" were considered rude. Nowadays, those three don't even warrant PG, but c--- contributes almost as much to a restrictive cinema certificate as a view of a minge. Which, er, is what it describes. If, as Doyle Lonnergan asked, y'foller?

    Kylie's Map of Tasmania

    A bit disappointed in this story too.

    I was expecting Kylie's mapotassie to be clearly on display.

    Exsqueeze me...

    As the bootnote says, why would anyone want to "enter" Kylie's Minge...

    more to the point.....

    why is their spell-checker/auto correction changing "Minogue's" or whatever it was they first wrote to Minge's. I know none of the text editors I use change or offer "Minge" as an alternative.

    Me thinks they must be using their work comp for something else.....

    Relatively speaking

    Does this mean that the diminutive antipodean songstress is related to the leader of our own Lib-Dems?

    And would an impersonator go by the name of Kylie Merkin?

    Thinking back...

    This story reminds me of my time at uni... in the campus radio station, any reference to "Kylie Minogue" in the record / CD library and catalogue had been either entered as or changed to "Curly Minge".
