    Default Something for your coffee: Dry British humor...

    An English anthropologist was doing research in an isolated African village, and the tribal chief asked if he would like to attend a trial his people were conducting that afternoon.

    "You'll be surprised," said the chief, "at how well we've copied your
    country's legal procedures. You see, we have read accounts of many
    English trials in your newspapers, and incorporated them into our
    judicial system."

    When the Brit arrived at the wooden constructed courthouse, he was
    truly amazed to see how closely the African court officials resembled
    those of England. The counsels were suitably attired in long black
    robes and the traditional white powdered wigs worn by all British
    jurists. Each argued his case with eloquence and in proper judicial
    language. But he couldn't help being puzzled by the occasional
    appearance of a bare-breasted native girl running through the crowd
    waving her arms frantically.

    After the trial, the anthropologist congratulated his host on what he
    had seen and then asked, "What was the purpose of having a seminude
    woman run through the courtroom during the trial?"

    "I really don't know," confessed the Chief, "but in all the accounts
    we read in your papers about British trials, there was invariably
    mentioned something about 'an excited titter' running through the gallery."

    I've always enjoyed drool British humour. I took this to work and out of about 30 people only a Brtish guy from Enfield got it.
