Thread Name: Do Americans know?
Subject: RE: Do Americans know?

No wonder you have to laugh at your own jokes, you are the only one who thinks they are funny!!!

Seriously, your comment is so typical of the "I understand America and Americans" situation as described above--

In fact, yes, we do get your jokes--We think it is very funny to pretend that we misunderstand jokes, particularly jokes made by "Britons"--

If you knew more about what goes on here(something that you can do by just picking up the TV Guide) you would know that we are very fond of sophisticated, dry, British humor--particularly Benny Hill--

I must admit, some Americans confuse him for Anthony Wedgewood Benn--but, cut us a little slack, many Britons confuse Bill Clinton with Benny Hill--
