    Its the accent that makes this joke very catchy,



    Aside from the two jokes or Limericks we see in the clip above...That is the opening scene of the film 13 sins. 13 sins explores what a human will to earn money. The man above was a part of a series of challenges designed to get one to basically commit degraded acts/crime for money.

    More rubbish from the father of all rubbish. The film is American - not British - and is the re make of a Thai horror movie. Other than the fact that it as some British actors (and some actors like the main protagonist will do anything for money) it has zilch to do with British humour.

      Mark have a sense of humor. The film clip shown is most certainly a style of English Humor.

      Its an American film of course, but the English influenced accent and English style really brings home the joke.

          Faced with numerous hurdles, men like Edward Lear prevailed. There is all sorts of entertainment in world history, and through the fire Lear prevailed.

            Not quite. You are the grandfather of all rubbish for always attempting to start personal wars. Your not allowed to get away with talking to others like that pal. People can defend themselves. And above all your wrong itt. It was proven so this is a case of English humor.

              If you want a REAL British satirical comedy about the lengths people will go to acquire money, featuring a stellar ensemble cast and great music, watch "The Magic Christian". Here's the whole film:

                Interesting I may take a look at the film later as I have the day off. I did not know Ringo Starr starred in a film with Peter Sellers. Btw how about that, Ringo is a Starr.

                  Okay, let's turn it down a notch or two. There is no reason to get personal.

                    Ringo must be one of the blonde women. Now that's a British sense of humor!

                      English humour is Black Adder, Only Fools and Horses, Absolutely Fabulous, Yes, Minister/Prime minister, Porridge The Good Life, etc, etc. Go watch them and get educated.

                      Can win mans heart for you;
                      And many a blessing know to stew
                      To make a megloamaniac bright;
                      Give honour to the dainty Corse,

                        It has been shown that Limericks have been greatly influenced by Englishmen. The Op shows a video of an actor providing a Limerick its a very English thing IMO. Actually your in the wrong here. Entertainment comes in various forums. Possible you are against films like Waterboy and Happy Gilmore because what, they are not proper enough for you?

                        What about Shaun of The Dead, that was an English Zombie Comedy film including scenes that maybe some find detestable.

                          I can't believe I'm weighing in on this, but I believe the first joke the old man tells is not a limerick (it does not have the structure) and not a British joke. I used to tell it to my American History classes. I said "poop", of course. I know there are bears in Great Britain, but it certainly is more likely to have originated in America. I have not seen the movie, but it appears the old man, in order to win, had to tell two embarrassing jokes and then chop off a finger. I fail to see how this is humor of any ethnicity. Back to my life.
