I’ve lived in the USA for 20 years now and people always ask me if I miss England. I do – and it’s mostly the humour & wit that I find wanting in my new home.
Example. Norman Balon, reputedly London’s rudest pub landlord, has just retired from running the Coach & Horses in Soho. When asking a customer to leave his hostelry he added: “You’re so ugly you’re upsetting the customers.”
Now, where can you find that kind of bile in La-La land?
