Stan Boardman and Des O'connor - the Fokker joke

Stan Boardman
This clip, featuring Stan Boardman, caused great controversy when it was aired live on the Des O'Connor Show in the mid-eighties. Stan's joke centres around a Polish fighter pilot who is  reminiscing about one of his missions. Stan made great play of the word Fokker, and not only in relationship to the German Focke-Wolf Aroplanes. Boardman ended up being banned from making any other appearances on ITV(Thames)... for a while.

By today's standards though this joke is fairly tame and far from unacceptable... I remember watching it live - I thought it was funny then and still funny now. Take a look see what you think.
