OK, let us start by defining the word Humour or Humor if you are American. Humour: A message whose ingenuity or verbal skill or incongruity has the power to evoke laughter. To laugh or smile at something funny, this gives you a sense of humour. So, is British humour all about sophisticated subtleties and clever play on words, you can decide after you have read this article, but be careful, you might be judged for having no sense of humour, a very serious thing if you are British. LOL. So, would you agree with the consensus that British people have more of a sense of humour than people from other countries, If you are not British, I am sure you would disagree with the consensus. It is also true that humour is something that must not be explained, either you understand it or not. Take a look at some British jokes and see if you understand them, if you are an English native speaker, you should have no problem, but if you are not, you might struggle, see how you get on... Joke: A man asked for a meal in a restaurant. The waiter brought the food and put it on the table. After a moment, the man called the waiter and said: "Please don’t speak so loudly, sir", said the waiter, "or everyone will want one." "Waiter! Waiter! There's a fly in my soup!" What about this one: What do you give an Elephant with diarrhea Answer: Plenty of room So, is humour one of the most important human qualities? For sure it has benefits, like making people happy, positive influence on others and studies also show that humour keeps you young. Laughter, smiling and happiness gives you a youthful feeling. How would you differentiate American humour from British humour, well they say that American humour is more slap stick, whereas British humour is more subtle with a bit of sarcasm.
