John Cleese, the English comedian and actor, was asked on American TV what he thought the difference between the English and the Americans were. In reply, he said that there were three differences:
1. We speak English and you don’t.
2. When we hold a World Championship for a particular sport, we invite teams from other countries.
3. When you meet the head of state in England, you only have to go down on one knee.
If you don’t find this funny, then your sense of humour is different to mine.
