British Humour

July 23, 2023

Those of us who grew up in the 70s used to wonder why we were ushered to our rooms on Saturday nights when programmes such as Dave Allen and the Dick Emery shows were on.

As a child, I never understood why adults giggled over “Mrs Slocomb’s pussy” or the Carry On’s “I’ve got a lovely pair…”. But it does appear that us Brits do love a bit of smutty talk and double entendres; even to this day, you can’t watch an episode of “Great British Bake Off” without a mention of  terms such as “soggy bottoms” and “cream horns”.

In my mind, there is a clear distinction between these comments and crude chat which is clearly uncalled for. We do not condone any form of vulgar or offensive behaviour on this site.
