    narkissos, the RU486 "commercial" comes from MAD-TV, one of the most "out-there" comedy sketch shows on American commercial (free) television. Submerged cultural references: Susan Smith, possibly Andrea Yates, and all the paranoid-myopic Puritan assumptions that underlie the "abstinence education" movement.

    Thank you very much GF.

    There is, indeed, a very particular "watcher's angle and distance" for the humour to be perceived, and when you don't get "there" you don't get it. In the general context of the show I would very probably have reacted otherwise...
