British humour can be pretty funny and sacarstic too. They love the play of words as well.
 Someone sent me these:


During last night's high winds an African family were killed by a falling tree.
A spokesman for the Birmingham City Council said 'We didn't even know they were living up there'.


================================================


I was reading in the paper today about this dwarf that got pick-pocketed.
How could anyone stoop so low?


================================================


I was walking down the road when I saw an Afghan bloke standing on a fifth-floor balcony, shaking a carpet.
I shouted up to him, "What's up Abdul, won't it start?"

British humour is a somewhat general term applied to certain comedic motifs that are often prevalent in comedic acts originating in the United Kingdom and its current or former colonies. Comedy acts and television programmes typical of British humour include Monty Python, Benny Hill, and Keeping Up Appearances to name a few that have become quite popular outside of the United Kingdom. At times, however, such humour can seem puzzling to non-British speakers of English (for example, references to British slang terms or people who are not internationally known), while certain Commonwealth nations (such as Australia, Canada and South Africa) tend to find it more familiar. Many UKcomedy TV shows typical of British humour have been internationally popular, and have been a strong avenue for the export and representation of British culture to an international audience.
 
 
One of the most popular comedies was provided by Benny HillLOL

Alfred Hawthorne "Benny" Hill (21 January 1924 – 19 April 1992) was an English comedian, actor and singer, notable for his long-running television programme The Benny Hill Show.
