I think America’s humor takes a different perspective from humor in other parts of the globe. We have a jovial sense of humor. It’s fun-loving with a hint of satire. I like jovial. It makes good use of humor by lightening the mood. Other parts of the globe tend to be little darker… laughing at others’ misfortunes and so forth.
I think our humor is jovial because we work so damn hard and are all pretty much in the same boat. Anyhoo, long live jovial satire.
