Is Irony a truly British characteristic

Story | 25 May, 2009 | Views: 1249 |  -1   |  
SAN FRANCISCO MAN BECOMES FIRST AMERICAN TO GRASP SIGNIFICANCE OF IRONY - Jay Fullmer, 38, yesterday became the first American to get to grips with the concept of irony. “It was weird” Fullmer said. “I was in London and like, talking to this guy and it was raining and he pulled a face and said, “great weather, eh?” and I thought “wait a minute, no way is it great weather”. Fullmer then realised that the other man’s ‘mistake’ was in fact deliberate.

Fullmer, who is 39 next month and married with two children, aged 8 and 3, plans to use irony himself in future. “I’m like using it all the time” he said. “Last weekend I was grilling steaks and I burned them to sh!t and I said “hey, great weather!”.

Oh great another smug British attempt at humour, at the expense of the Americans. I have spent 3 years in the UK now and its really getting a bit much.
I mean when i was in the states I did not see Americans sitting around bitching about other countries. Also the Briton is the only place i have been to where people derive pleasure out of watching the problems of other nations on tv and mocking them. Get over yourselves sure ones upon a time your opinions mattered, but now u are just a mediocre state with a messed up economy and a corrupt government. Maybe if you spend half the time you do mocking Americans, reflecting on your own situation you would not be in this mess.
