Do Childrens TV presenters make sexual innuendo on purpose or am I just sick minded?

Well exams are now finished thankfully so I now have a rediculous amount of freetime. Although yesterday involved going to Thorpe Park, I'm going to follow a different theme.

As you can see from the title I'm going to explore the age old question of do childrens presenters/programmes include sexual innuendo on purpose.

From a young age we were all exposed to childrens shows like Postman Pat and such. We also had to deal with the tiresome antics of the presenters between programmes. Anyway this is what brought me to this question. The other day when I had woken up early for an exam I happened across Cbeebies (a programme for very young children for those of you who don't know)

These are the kind of fools we can find on this show. Anyways while watching this the presenters were pretending to be a train. The woman preceeded the man in an up the arse kind of way and held two heldlamps in an unsubltle way over her chest. This got me thinking. Did they just do this fomation out of instinctiveness or plan on this as they know children don't have the mental process to realise the relevance of this.

This took me back to an episode of Rainbow from the 1980s thats been circulating the internet for a while.

Zippy George etc

That's right we all remember their hilarious antics. Anyway this episode in question was made as a joke of sorts where many innuendos were thrown in on purpose, i.e "Geoffry yesterday we played with our balls didn't we". You get the idea.

Its hard to say for certain as I have no way of knowing if what I saw the other day was a deliberate attempt to take advantage of childrens innocence. I have no insight into the world of these 20 somethings who for some reason act like retards for the gratification of young children. Though you would have to assume that judging by their age and that parents watch this with children and need to be entertained in some way it is quite possible.

However I also think that this just confirms that I have a sick mind which looks out for innuendo. Ah well such is life being an male.

Another original Dave post on its way soon.

Ah vaguely like my history text book. 'The erection of cottages for impotent peasants'. *snigger*
