Goofing around has always been part of what makes The Great British Bake Off so much fun to watch. And as the years have gone by, the jokes delivered on the show have become increasingly more innunndo-laden and irreverent.
And recently, the show has taken that wink-wink-nudge-nudge shtick onto its social media profiles, too.
Apropos of nothing, the other day the show used a still from one of its episodes to make a most off-color gay sex joke on Twitter, which you can see below. The joke has left fans absolutely cackling--famous British "stiff upper lip" be damned!
In the tweet, The Great British Bake Off--or GBBO as fans affectionately call it--included a still with a closed-caption that read "Is the top straight?"
Now of course, whoever said this on the show was talking about the top of their cake, say, or the top of their towering croquenbûche, or something. It was surely baking related! But GBBO never met a double entendre it didn't instantly love, so they answered the caption's question with one simple word: "Unlikely."
The reference, of course, is to *ahem* certain sexual practices of many LGBTQ people, where one partner is the "top" and the other is the aptly-titled "bottom."
Get it? Zing! GBBO is out here making gay sex jokes, ladies and gentlemen. Bet you didn't see that coming, eh? 2021 stays wild!
Of course, people on Twitter loved this edgy bit of humor from such a wholesome, family-oriented show. And whoever runs the GBBO Twitter account wasn't content with just one gay sex joke. They went in for a second double entendre just as punny as the first.
And then a third.
"Versatile" in LGBTQ-ese means someone who likes to be both top and bottom from time to time. Get it? Seriously give this person a raise!
On Twitter, GBBO's followers loved this new level of irreverence from the show.
No word as yet on what Her Majesty the Queen thinks of all this baking-related gay sex talk, but if she's smart she'll grant knighthood or damehood to this social media manager right away.
