Lets talk about the British. What comes to mind? Pubs? The Queen? Somber old castles? Tea? Wrong. Their most defining feature (in my humble opinion at least) is their brilliant sense of humor. Aaah, British humor, where do I start?
The extreme self-deprecation that it involves, the deadpan way in which it is executed and the scathing sarcasm entwined across every niche. It takes mortals of high intelligence to make their way through the language and know when theyre being insulted. The art of subtlety is well practiced among the elite humorists. Heres a little guide on how to survive out there
1. Remember to be the butt of your own jokes. Exaggerate your flaws and your clumsiness. Think of yourself as the most absurd person on this little planet. Someone who isnt afraid to laugh at himself is always well received.
2. What better way to establish dominance than a witty verbal brawl? Never back down when you sense a Brit challenging you to a little word sprawl. Dont forget to put in the occasional pun to command more respect.
3. Try and keep up a poker face as you make a sarcastic remark, only allowing yourself a slight smirk as you deliver a clever punch line. Sophistication is a huge plus.
4. Situational comedy is always appreciated. The British arent afraid of the occasional dark humor. Hone yourself to the next mans levels of sensitivity and bring out the best.
5. Polite insults, discreetly put forth is the British way of saying, Hey, maybe youre not so bad after all. Never get offended at the casual taunts that meet you along the way.
Who better to learn from than the legends themselves? Ricky Gervais, Jon Richardson and Micky Flanagan are among the finest comedians. T.V. shows like The Office and the classic Monty Python and books by P.G.Wodehouse and Terry Pratchett are all good places to start from, to transform yourself into the ideal British wit.
