Must not joke about breasts

Australian TV personalities joke about Dolly Parton's famous assets

The Today show has been trying to win back female viewers after Karl Stefanovic's personal life turned into a PR disaster last year.

But it seems Channel Nine's breakfast show still has a way to go, after panellists Tony Jones and Tom Steinfort made crude comments about Dolly Parton's breasts on Tuesday morning.

During a segment about the recent Grammy Awards, which saw Dolly perform a rendition of Jolene with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, Tom surprised viewers by remarking: 'She is age defying and gravity defying!'

Entertainment reporter Brooke Boney attempted to laugh off the bizarre statement, responding: 'I beg your pardon, Tom Steinfort!'

Meanwhile, Tony wasn't discouraged from making his own rude joke, blurting out: 'Seeing those two on stage, I thought, was fantastic... and Miley of course.'

The cringeworthy moment was made worse by the fact a third male panellist, weatherman Steve Jacobs, burst into fits of laughter.

Jokes about Dolly's breasts were standard fare during her heyday. Too bad she didn't have a bigger influence on that skank Miley.

Some females go to great lengths to showcase their features.
