Re: A Swiss sense of humour.

English humour is mostly based on self-deprecation, as they are acutely aware of their many shortcomings, the lack of which in Swiss people contribute to what foreigners might identify as lack of humour.

Or, in other words, for those of you who, like me, fail to understand the above sentence after reading it again: We are so perfect there is nothing to laugh about.
This could explain why the parts of Britain with the most developed sense of humour are those where life is a bit rough around the edges.
