Come on, fellow NHBers ... I'm trying to be humorous, here. It's not like I was comparing USA humor to anything else out there ... just the dry-witted Brits.
Hell, we're the ones with the Jewish-American humorists, the best in the world. Just like Kenya has the best long-distance runners, France the best snails-and-butter (nobody else wants that crap anyway), the Germans with the best Muslim immigration welcome (current events!), Swiss with the best watch makers, Brazil with the best bikini waxers, Canada with the best hockey players ... the list goes on and on.
