Henning Wehn, German Comedy Ambassador to the United Kingdom, on Britain’s social classes:

“Life in Britain is all about knowing your place. The lower class has a lot in common with the upper class in that they’re mostly unemployable, make virtually no tax contribution and don’t need to consider if they can afford another child. And, they also boast of living in grandly named estates that are falling apart around their ears. They’re both hated by the middle class who never actually see any upper or lower class people…

“As far as I can tell as an outsider, the lower and upper classes rule the country between them. The upper class spends most of its time saying, “Oy, where’s my martini?” The lower class spends most of its time saying, “Oy, where’s me benefits?” And the middle class spends most of its time saying, “I’m sorting both those things out for you now. Sorry about the wait.”
