Laughing around the world
Laughing at situations in which nobody is singled out or humiliated is safer. Russians, on the other hand, will laugh at themselves, their sense of melancholy, their enjoyment of drink and the state of their country. Australians, too, are not afraid to mock themselves, and others.
Arabs can have a fine sense of self-deprecating humor, while Indians love satirical jokes about family and society. Join in the laughter in any of these countries, and possibly throw in a quip or two about your own nationality, but never theirs. Mexican culture is well-known for laughing at everything including death.
Life is better when you are laughing, but remember the old saying: If in doubt, leave it out.
