Great take-down of Christopher Hitchens by NZ Bear. What the Bear forgets is a larger point: As a general rule, the English should not be trusted in matters of taste, especially humor. The thread of insipidity in English culture is just too strong to ignore . . . I'm sure there are some honorable exceptions, but come one . . . anyone who takes himself as seriously as Hitchens appears to shouldn't be allowed to bloviate on humor, especially American humor, which the English tend not to get. EXERCISE: Can you name three funny English stand-up comedians? And American comedians on the Brit version of Whose Line Is It Anyway don't count! Note to angry English people: This is a two-way street: Americans don't get your humor either . . . assuming it exists!
