So to get to the point we need the innuendo as much as we need the story, silly jokes, songs and skip. It is something for everyone. In my opinion the kids that don't understand the joke have plenty to enjoy in other areas so it's no problem, older kids who begin to understand some references think it is hilarious and there is nothing better than being 12 and realise you get a joke about constipation that your 10 year old brother didn't get. Teens love it - for some it is the only thing they enjoy about panto and the adults either do as I do and love it or ignore it.
I'm sorry but rude jokes are funny and anyone who says they're not is lying...!
Whenever I see innuendo in a pantomime script I resist the urge to whip it out...
