Where's your sense of humour?

It depends on your point of view. One person’s biscuit is somebody else's insult.

Welcome to the world of popular culture: toys and games, TV and advertising, film and fashion. We package, label and present certain images to the world. We pick and choose what we like. It’s convenient. We select bits of culture, our own and other people's, to make money, to make a point or to make a joke.

At times we cross the line. We stereotype — or worse.

'C'mon, it’s only a joke', we say. But who's NOT laughing?
