This is what you call satire, David?

David McSavage not only remains unrepentant about his portrayal of Joe Duffy on The Savage Eye, but still refers to the RTE star as "a gobshite". David yesterday defended his portrayal of Joe by saying that "we open him up, and rip him apart. That's what good satire does".

And just to show how incisive and surgical his satire can be, McSavage (right) turned his attentions to Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams. "Brian deserves to be put on trial for crimes against music ... and Vogue? (She's) a strange looking creature that belongs in a zoo."

If those stupendously unfunny comments are "satire", we can safely say that the next series of The Savage Eye will be the least eagerly-awaited show ever...
