Ghidul xenofobului: turism cu umor la englezi | Ghidul Xenofobului

Ghidul XenoFobului - Englezii

In mod indubitabil, englezii se prezinta ca un popor al contradictiilor. Pe de o parte, cultura britanica reprezinta una dintre cele mai valoroase edificii spirituale ale umanitatii; pe de alta parte, cine nu ii asociaza pe englezi cu huliganismul, cu subcultura de pub si darul betiei? Posedand un umor rasat, dar greu de inteles, britanicii par a fi tinta satirei majoritatii popoarelor, fie ca vorbim de germani, americani sau - mai ales - francezi. Acestia din urma ii inteleg cel mai putin pe englezi, tachinarea dintre cele doua popoare avand radacini istorice adanci.

***

Din Ghidul XenoFobului - Englezii:

“Pentru englezi, orice pacate de ordin social pot fi iertate daca acela care le comite e capabil sa rada de ele. De fapt, cea mai mare parte a suspiciunilor pe care englezii le au fata de straini sunt determinate de incapacitatea de a le intelege tipul de umor, asa ca presupun ca nici nu au asa ceva.

Un factor comun este reprezentat de abilitatea si disponibilitatea de a dezumfla balonul ingamfarii si al snobismului - la propria persoana in primul rand. Nimic nu a consolidat mai mult popularitatea regretatei printese Diana decat remarca ei autoironica, anume ca a fost toanta in scoala. Faptul ca a fost dispusa sa afirme asa ceva si apoi sa rada de spusele ei i-a contrabalansat cu varf si indesat orice posibila tontie. In Anglia, creierul este un accesoriu optional, dar simtul umorului e obligatoriu.”
