I don’t know what it is about English humour (not humor).
I just can’t explain.
But this bit is funny.
Anyway, here is a wholesome reading on English humour, “Of all the characteristics, good and bad, for which the English are known in the outside world, our sense of humour is one of the best-known and most positively regarded. The theory apparently goes that not only do we have more humour overall than other nations, it is consistently funnier too. This article will attempt to examine some of the major characteristics of English humour, and suggest some reasons for its development into such a powerful influence on our society and culture.”
