Campaing for Equal Height Victory

Postby Sandra » Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:03 pm

The Campaign for Equal Heights is very concerned:

Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding* are being paid the same amount** - this is a great victory for the Dwarf (NB standing {on a stool} joke about Sandi's height) in achieving equal pay.

Those who strive for equal pay per foot of vertical height declaim this as blatant heightist discrimination. After all Wee Mad Arthur is happy to charge less for rat clearance as his reduced height does allow him to live in far greater luxury even when charging far less...

**sorry can't find a link to the story

(As if a woman as strong as Sandi wouldn't expect equal pay - WHY is this a headline :roll: )

:lol:

When we went to see the recording of the 2nd episode of QI after Sandi Toksvig first took over the helm from Stephen Fry, she joked that they'd only hired her because of BBC cutbacks - they were now paying their presenters by the foot . . . :lol:
