Thread Name: Our sense of humour? B/S
Subject: RE: Our sense of humour? B/S
I've wondered from time to time if anyone here thinks I have a sense of humor. I like dry humor and subtlties. I do like the "Britcoms". Hey, get this you guys. When I was a kid, I saw the Beverly Hilbillies come on TV and I was actually embarrassed by it.

I like the old black and white movies with, say, Cary Grant. There would be a comedic scene with no dialogue, no music, and you could hear the "shush" of the soundtrack. The humor was in subtle changes of expression on someone's face.

But I have laughed at the Marx brothers, Abbott and Costello, and Laurel and Hardy, so subtle isn't always what tickles me. Heck, I think 'Spaw is a crack up!
