British Humour

Face it. It's a question we all ask at some point, but I have to admit: the British do it best. It is that British Humour.
Even though it is a somewhat general term applied to certain comedic motifs; but such humour as this, can seem puzzling to non-British speakers of English. We associate comedy acts and television programs such as Monty Python as having that humour. A humour which has been a strong avenue for the export and representation of British culture to an international audience for ages. This is not to say though that British humour has no place in visuals. I took the picture above in the heart of London, and it happened to be on the back of a van used to transport goods. Any other place, the typical sign found would have read something like "how's my driving?"
