Who said you Brits did not have a sense of humor [TG for the dailymail]

Hi Guys,

So I read a lot of of post about news on the "dailymail" and was curious so about a month ago decided to read the infamous dailymail and I have to admit I can't have enough of it! It is just ridiculous and preposterous (read this for instance)...I want to thank you all who pointed me towards it...

Of course we have a sense of humour in America... as well portrayed by our high class newspaper "The National Enquirer".....

I could not agree more, we Brits being renowned for our sense of humour (unlike many of our cousins ...)

And yes, the DM is completely laughable these days and does not in any way reflect the essence of British humour ... far from it, being full mostly of sensationalist crxp
