"What are you laughing at?"

"It's the oldest jibe in the book: 'Americans just don't get irony.' But they do, argues comedian Simon Pegg in the Guardian - our national senses of humour have more in common than we like to think."

Pegg wrote Shaun of the Dead, so I guess he knows. He says Americans really enjoyed the British cast's understated reserve in the face of flesh-eating zombies.

Unless, of course, we were just laughing because Brits were being eaten.

Perish the thought.

We really do like you.

Sincerely yours,
Cat
An American
