The etymology section wasn't vandalism, but now of course I have no idea where I got it from, so I won't add it back. It was from a scholarly book though...hopefully I can find it again. Adam Bishop 00:54, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
Are there any examples that can be explained? I've read the article, and still have no idea what ribaldry is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by PabloSus86 (talk • contribs) 02:53, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
- If someone can run down a copy of Isaac Asimov's joke book (can't remember the title), a quote of one of his shorter bawdy jokes might be fair use and helpful as an example. --Jim Henry (talk) 14:44, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
- The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Sterne and The Lady's Dressing Room by Jonathan Swift.
I'm loathe to add yet another tag to this article but the Blue Comedy section specifically reads as if the phenomenon does not exist outside the USA. I don't know enough about the topic to edit but most British comedy is blue to an extent as is plenty of Australian comedy and I'm sure there are many others. Needs expanding in these directions.
