A Probing Interview

Top marks to the Green Guide's Chris Beck for his interview with Channel Seven's Grant Denyer, best known to non-Sunrise-viewers for his "I'm feeling like I had sex with a black man" comment on the morning after last year's Logies.

I didn't quite get the joke.

It's a large … appendage reference.

Oh, so it means you felt like you had (had anal sex)?

Yeah, yeah, from someone who is well endowed. Now the last time I checked, saying that a sector of the community has a larger appendage than the rest of us is a compliment. I don't know how anyone can possibly think you are racist from a comment like that?… Look, Channel Seven came to me and said, "98% of our audience will think it's hilarious. Problem is we have to launch the show so we'll have to make an apology".

So you are unrepentant?


Well you are now.

At the end of the day, I had a heap of people ring me up and saying next time you actually say that someone's got a big penis, can you please use my name.

Would you like to be black?

Yeah, I'd like the rhythm. They make great musicians.

What a twit. Remind you of anyone?

That, and The Jerk. Sometimes even Chris Beck has his uses.
