Humour as benchmark
|Posted By: Alistair Chew on November 17, 2015|
|I myself am Asian but primarily Anglophone. When I got to your friend's list of NDN-detecting criteria I admit I laughed because it struck me that Asians have similar jokes and are treated as similarly humourless (deadpan, inscrutable) people. In fact, a number of those criteria apply to me!|
The useful takeaway then would be: how do you differentiate NDN humour from those of other minority ethnicities, given that the NDN range is broadly diverse, just as 'Asian' can be? I would really love to know, because I have relatives who seem to have cultural traits which are somewhat equivalent.
