Too soon?

Seems that an Irish writer has gone and upset the applecart again.  He’s only gone and written a sitcom based in the time of the Irish potato famine.

Consequently there are calls for it to be banned for being an affront to the dignity of those who died or emigrated.

Hang on a mo.  How many died?  A million or so?

Wasn’t Blackadder 4 set in World War 1?  I don’t recall the same outrage when that was commissioned.  It’s nearer to the present day, more people died, more people had their lives turned upside down.

Ah but laughing at awful situations is frowned upon now.  Really?  Why?
