Choking on the stench of ambition in Washington DC

Guy goes to a diner and orders chili, the day's special. Owner says they're out, so guy orders a sandwich. He's starting to eat it when he notices the man next to him has a full bowl of chili. Guy asks man if he's going to eat it, the man says it's all yours.

About halfway through the bowl, guy finds a dead mouse in it. He immediately throws up, right into the bowl.

The other man nods knowingly. "Yeah, I did the same thing."

Is anybody else thinking that there is nothing funny about somebody being perfect douche? Not blaming anything, just want to know if I am still lacking sense of UK or US humour after years of interwebs.

That's 100% not the UK humour stereotype. US is more slapstick and visual, UK tends to be darker and more subtle. What's the Russian stereotype?

As an American, I think that's an accurate comparison. In terms of cinematic comedy, the British are more natural actors than Americans, so the Brits rely less on cult of personality (larger-than-life Americans like Jerry Lewis or Jim Carrey) and more on the actual script (Benny Hill an exception )

As for darkness, the British show Fleabag is a good recent example; I think there's enough indie action that Fleabag, and its premises, could've been made in America, but I think its tone is naturally-made in England.

I'm only 25 and I have not seen too much in my life to be sure. I do not believe that there is a definitive stereotype as Russia is a huge country with strongly diverse circumstances (historical, social and natural).

There sure are some subtle jokes in Russia which are consequence of soviet reign terror. They are getting less popular of course.

I am afraid of being misleading but I think that main theme of most appreciated jokes is about joke hero being smarter then others and taking advantage of it.

Stories and jokes about being extremele insensitive are only popular if there are no reallly bad consequences of hero being insensitive or he did it accidentially. Jokes about sexual life are unpopular because sex liberation lasted for only two decades already.
