Not getting it

Quoth the BBC:

The Office star Mackenzie Crook has denied his new comedy about deaths on the London Underground is insensitive.

"When I read the premise I thought this might be a touchy subject," he told BBC News. "But it soon became obvious that wasn't what the film is about."

Three and Out, released in the UK on 25 April, tells of a Tube driver who looks for a suicidal person to jump under his train so he can collect compensation.

Drivers' union Aslef has criticised the film for its "insulting" storyline.

Crook, who said he was "very proud" of the British-made movie, said he was "disappointed" people had been "jumping to conclusions".

Brilliantly, the BBC journo remains oblivious of the last quotation.
