If you've ever known a Brit, you've probably been jealous of their sense of humor.

British humor is full of sarcasm, insults, self-deprecation, taboo subjects, puns, innuendo, and wit. And there's a Twitter account that perfectly captures all of it.

With 245K followers, No Context Brits is a fun online project that -- just like the Brits themselves -- mocks just about everything.

But it's not meant to shock or offend anyone. On the contrary. It offers laughter as a form of medicine for those moments when life knocks you down and tries to keep you down.

The creator of No Context Brits told Bored Panda they have run "a few successful Twitter accounts specializing in British humor and thought one that encapsulated a combination of all of them would go down well, especially considering the current mood of the country, which isn’t particularly great at the best of times."

So far, the account has gained 245K followers in just under 2 months, attracting attention from countless well-known names and companies as well.

If it works, it works. I think it's adorable and totally fits (the concept of pride).

The person running this operation describes the content on the account as "British humor at its best."

"[It's] ironic, witty, sarcastic, and self-deprecating with lots of puns and innuendos thrown in for good measure," they said.

"The ability to laugh at ourselves is what sets us apart from the rest of the world and this account celebrates that fact."

Ricky Gervais, the legendary English actor, comedian, director, producer, and writer, who is best known for co-creating the British television mockumentary sitcom The Office, says that Americans are more "down the line" than their friends across the ocean. "They don't hide their hopes and fears," Gervais wrote. "They applaud ambition and openly reward success."

He believes Brits are more comfortable with life's losers. "We embrace the underdog until it's no longer the underdog. We like to bring authority down a peg or two. Just for the hell of it."

"Americans say, 'have a nice day' whether they mean it or not. Brits are terrified to say this. We tell ourselves it’s because we don’t want to sound insincere but I think it might be for the opposite reason. We don’t want to celebrate anything too soon. Failure and disappointment lurk around every corner. This is due to our upbringing. Americans are brought up to believe they can be the next president of the United States. Brits are told, "It won’t happen for you.'"

And it's really visible on No Context Brits. If you pay attention, the account will show you the cultural background of an entire country through humor. And that's quite something.

I read something about it some time ago. The city says that it is not an official sign, but someone hung it there for fun. Apparently nobody felt compelled to take it down again. Maybe it helps.

It is definitely 'Eddie Stobart'. This is photoshopped; the left side is poorly filled in. How can I tell? Because this is my level of photoshop competency.

Rode on a lot of buses. Bus drivers always acknowledge other bus drivers, even drivers of other municipal vehicles. When travelling a bus, I think how would I salute another bus driver. I would probably use a variety of hand salutes, probably depending on the individual I was saluting to. Obviously, certain hand salutes are inappropriate.
