There's a similar joke about Alsatians (who were alternatively under French or German rule):
An Alsatian dies and is sent to hell. The demon at the front desk asks:
– German hell or French hell?
– What's the difference?
– German hell, you get pierced with pikes, dragged over burning coals and then boiled in tar.
– Gasp! And the French one?
– Same, pikes, coals, tar.
– So what should I choose?
– Between you and me, take the French.
– Why's that?
– Well, one day they will have misplaced the pikes, another forgot to light the coals, or the tar demons will be on strike for better working conditions.
When did Dogs learn how to speak.

I didn't google anything, and I'm not sure what pop culture reference you mean (other that Star Trek).

Merely that it reflects my own impression of British "humour".
So very very different from humor. 8)

Or did you mean the "whistle while you work" thing? That's 100% American and I heard it as a kid. :P

Excuse me while I... :Mockering:

To be fair (which I am) I doubt many of our US bretheren would get it - even Doctor X who is versed in all things poppy culturally in Blighty.

Ah. So there's some actual "humour" that it's taken from. :p

"Whistle while you work, Hitler is a jerk" (that's the original American version) at least rhymes. 8)

Hate crime bill: Hate talk in homes ‘must be prosecuted’

Conversations over the dinner table that incite hatred must be prosecuted under Scotland’s hate crime law, the justice secretary has said.

Journalists and theatre directors should also face the courts if their work is deemed to deliberately stoke up prejudice, Humza Yousaf said.

The Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Bill has been condemned by critics including the Scottish Catholic Church, police representatives, academics and artists. It will introduce an offence of stirring-up of hatred against people with protected characteristics, including disability, sexual orientation and age.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
