"Humphrys himself remained resolutely unconvinced, commenting in his post-show review on the Today website: "I've never tried morris dancing, never tried incest – does that mean I should try them?"

    I normally wouldn't engage in such sensationalism, but I figure that Humphrys engages in similar tactics in his interviews, so it's just a bit of karmic accounting.
