You think insulting people is funny? Weird British humor, I guess

Well, we have it here in UK but, the news today revealed that there has been an online spending surge both here and in US More dignified at least!

Are you saying you actually think Gene Wilder said that? It's a meme. Someone took that image and put words on it. And it's not a joke - it's preachy.

By British humor,I meant that you apparently think it's funny, since you posted it in this thread.

I must be less sensitive. I took no offense. It's just a quip.

???? What?

I am sorry you seem to have difficulty in understanding me. My sentences were fairly straightforward, i.e. not cryptic. I was referring to shopping online being more dignified, i.e. regardless of country. If you read it again you will see it says both UK and US.


However, when I first joined here I was tipped off about the attitude to those who are not American, notably the Brits and I now see why. Jeez. Chill!!!
