I'm sure the French and the Spanish wonder the same thing Epilogue wink.gif

Also, maybe the search engine you use automatically looks for English language/ 'based in the same country as the searcher' sites??

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy. It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.
