Post Reply British Humour
Posted 12/23/07
When people from other countries ask me about this "famous" British humour I have a hard time trying to describe to them what it is.

I always just throw in words like sarcasm and irony around.

So I ask all ye British folk. What is British humour? And give an example if ye haveth one?

sketches iv seen were dark, morbid things, but still funny..in a twisted sorta way
hmmm, i guess its jus randomly takng the p*ss out of stuff and parodying nearly evrything,

most of them tend to be a play on words or manipulation of the language ^_^ the english language is the easiest to manipulate which makes it truly rule
