Added DiffLines:

* TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou: Paul Sinha's "defence" of Jeremy Clarkson in 2011 over claims that the latter had called for public sector workers to be shot was 90% insulting Jeremy Clarkson, with the remainder split between insulting the show it appeared on, insulting the press for misreporting his joke, and explaining the joke. [[note]]The BBC has a policy that political views should be balanced with opposing views. Clarkson mostly supported the public sector strikes, so he then invoked this policy and suggested they be shot.[[/note]]

* WrongInsultOffence: Following an incident when a football supporter threw a banana at a black player, black comedian Nathan Caton did a monologue complaining about ''lazy'' racism. "I mean, if you threw a bottle of Reggae Reggae Sauce or a Nando's menu, I'd be offended, but I'd think you did some research!"

Periodically Punt and Dennis (and often the same guests) will do a different radio show in its place, ''It's Been A Bad Week'', which is about weird news stories from around the world.

* ButtMonkey: When William Hague was Conservative leader, he would often be cited as having had an even worse week than whoever had actually won "The Worst Week Of The Week Award, Awarded Weekly On A Week-By-Week Basis". This was largely just so [[Series/DeadRingers Jon Culshaw]] [[The Cast Show Off could show off his Hague impression]].
