German humor. German humor is a little too direct for me. I like Russian “so dry you don’t if they’re joking and you’ll never find out for sure”, British dry with a raised eyebrow or Canadian dry with the slight upturn of the lip. Canadian also has the twinkle of the eye. Love the twinkle of the eye. Germans do the eye twinkle too except it’s more, “Please laugh or I suicide. I am now about to suicide if you do not laugh. You are not laughing but I did not suicide. You see how this is funny because I did not do what I said I would do. The lie makes it funny because my eyes told you that my mouth was lying and you listened to my eyes even though they do not have vocal chords!” [that is the first and last time I will try to imitate German humor. It sounded too much like how I think and that disturbs me]

Canadian is probably my favorite of the three because they’re a nice cross between American slapstick and British dry humor. They also come across as warm and you feel like they are your friend.

Russian humor also gives off the same “We’re all friends here” sensation although they can be a little stiff and I have to think more. [as they say, “with Russia, it’s always a game of chess”] but I like that.

But if somebody asks, I usually say “I’m a Anglophile” (somebody who loves British things) because it covers British and Canadian and declares, “I don’t care as much for French humor”. [yet sometimes i like French humor but they can sometimes be a little bizarre to American ears – at least mine]
