In my humble opinion...

The quintessential difference between english and non english humor is...


In american humor, we laugh at ourselves....

The humor of the english is....the bizarre...the impossibly so outrageous, nobody would ever do what the skit was about....

3 main policies: 1. War with France. 2. Tougher sentences for Geography teachers and 3. A right royal kick up the Prince's back side.

That's comedy gold.

It must be a blast to work in an environment where the whole point is to be humorous and to produce positive energy. It's obvious those people are all having a fantastic time.
