English vs American humo(u)r? Turns out it’s not at all that different — or so thinks comedian Simon Pegg:
Americans can fully appreciate irony. They just don’t feel entirely comfortable using it on each other, in case it causes damage. A bit like how we feel about guns.
Regardless: I’m pretty sure 99,99% percent of you won’t get this prime example of
Belgian West-Flemish humor… :)

I can tell you: this cruddy language is close to all langages (= subregional languages ) spoken along the old Hansa line, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanseatic_League : the areas bordering the sea, originally from Calais ( FR) to high up in the north ( Norway & Sweden). all people living there say for instance ( one way or another) gÃ¨Ã¨s ( unwritable) when they mean grass. Which indeed brings us back to .. the missing cow.
