Humour its a funny old thing

January 30, 2007 8:29pm CST
what is your sense of humour? does it vary from country to country? I started a rather stupid discussion the other day that mylot was run by governments to spy on us all, a rather propostrous idea but i thought quite funny. Most american, Canadian, British, aussies etc seemed to get that it was a joke, but most of the people who don't speak English as their first language seemed to take it literally and told me i was stupid. Does sarcasm or silly humour like this cross borders? what can we do to make our friends in India laugh?

Maybe sarcasm is harder to get across to people who's first language isn't English - and also sarcasm is harder on the net when people don't know you well enough to know you must be joking.
