On Wednesday night, 1.5 million people watched The Chaser, and only 30 complained. Some were offended by Julian Morrow trying to get the (female) Governor-General into the exclusively male Melbourne Club by throwing a dummy dressed like her over the club’s wall. It took him a while because he’s a crap thrower.
Anyway, people have compared it to the Footy Show‘s Sam Newman groping an underwear-clad mannequin featuring sports journo Caroline Wilson’s face. And it is. If by similar you mean both feature female mannequins.
There is a big difference between the two. While the Chaser skit is saying the only way to get a woman into the Melbourne Club is to literally throw her over the wall, the Footy Show skit was a direct attack on Wilson, taking a staple-gun to her face, looking her up and down in her underwear and calling her a “fair piece” and groping her breasts. Hardly the same thing.
