Education, politics, and anything else that catches my attention.
God love the British. I think the singular reason "House" is so popular is that despite the American accent, Hugh Laurie's delivery is every bit the crisp and critical Brit. I love British humor from the sly to the ridiculous. Oh that we had such wordsmiths in our domestic comedy spectrum.
British turns of phrase are remarkable--but I'm not too enthralled with the Monty Python or Benny Hill styles of English humor.
Nudge-nudge, wink-wink, say no more...Actually, if you listen to many of Benny Hill's songs and one man sketches, you will find that his word play was often very witty. Unfortunately his wit is often forgotten and the man is only remembered for his troupe of dancing girls.
Benny Hill's word play *was* extremely witty, but I got lost with the slapstick. The only people whose slapstick I ever really enjoyed was the Three Stooges--and there was no witty word play there.Oh, a wise guy, eh?
