A BBC radio presenter was tricked into reading a sex abuse joke on the air.
To understand this prank, you’ve got to know something about Jimmy Savile, who passed away in 2011.
Listen to the clip:
Good Morning Ulster – Jimmy Savile 2012 10 26
If you’re Brit-speak challenged, here’s the text version, which the female presenter says offers "an alternative view on the Jimmy Savile story":
"I wish everyone would stop criticising Jimmy Savile. He was a nice man. When I was eight he fixed it for me to milk a cow blind-folded."
