From blog correspondent John Boyden
Do the Americans get irony?
JB: I have to say that I'm one of those Americans who does get and greatly appreciates irony. One of my great pleasures when I'm in the UK is watching the telly. Commercials there are brilliant: full of satire, parody, irony, and plain ole humor. There's certainly no need for the 'mute' button over there since there's really a minimal amount of broadcasting which is not entertaining.

Personally, one of the few things that will automatically erect an invisible wall between myself and another person is when I hear "I just don't get British humor." [End.]
