Hug the books

From The Panel, 4:34 pm on 7 December 2018

In response to Peta's decision this week to ask people not to use idioms about hurting animals, A British book chain has offered up alternative idioms that don't "trivialise cruelty to book".

They include swapping 'cook the books' for 'cook the books a nice dinner' and changing 'hit the books' to 'hug the books'.

Meantime a former Saturday Night Live writer has been yanked off stage after telling what some described as offensive jokes. The panelists discuss the line between funny and controversial.
