Not as funny as the English ones.
Indeed the recent penalty shots mande by England were less than average. In which case I shall hide behind the usual English excuse:
"We invented the game!"
Re: British vs US Humour
A few years ago I spent a week in Prague (I wanna go back some time when the temperature is above -10 Celsius though) and one on my felloow students was (poor chap) American. This same topic came up one night after a couple of bottles nice cheap Pilsener (Plsen is a couple of dozen km away from Prague IIRC).
I told the problem was that Americans think irony is something you use to get creases out of your shirty. He was still trying to work it out a week later when we returned to the UK!! :-?
Budweisser is olso of Czech origin: the town of Budweiss (In Czech Ceske Budejovice).
I like Prague too. The first time - 1980, it was a gray, uninviting, polluted, dirty place full of apathetic creatures.
I´ve been there a couple of years ago - a total transformation into a beauty of a city. Not as ancient as Krakow but very big and full of life.
I remember, in 1980 I asked some Prague Jews: are the Czechs always so apathetic and ghost-like? "Yes, and we are afraid nothing is going to change them."
A miracle happened: communism disappeared and Czechs are what they have been before: the down to earth, hardworking and full of humor. No wonder it was Skoda that produced the Hetzer (and the Czechs developed pilsner and the original Czech Budweisser)!
Had this sent to me awhile ago. Still makes me smile whenever I look at it.
