Humour & me

I was reading an article by Simon Pegg. He suggested that the difference between British humour and American humour is in the way they approach irony and emotion. The brits take a little emotion with a lot of irony, while the Americans prefer it served with a lot of emotion and a side order of irony.

I thought the article was humourous and insightful. Now i want to see Shaun of the Dead all over again!

Hey, you heard the makers of "Shaun of the Dead" are coming out with a new movie, right? It's a cop movie called, "Hot Fuzz." It looks hilarious. Brilliant cop transferred to perfect little town and stumbles upon what looks to be a link in several deaths. The towns people can't believe that anyone would be so mean as to murder anyone.
