    Do Europeans and other Westerners crack jokes?

    I have a few friends from Europe and some from the U.S. and have found that they really don't enjoy what is termed as jokes in India. Indians are sometimes seen to make jokes of very serious situations like someone slipping and falling on the road or they themselves hurting against a boulder. Is such irritating behavior seen in the West?

    Google the show or movie "jackass". Yes we seem to make annoying jokes about people hurting themselves. I personally can't stand the Jackass movies or the show but it had a large following for a long time.

    cultural differences result in humor being different. There are certain aspects of western culture that is funny only to westerners, while there are certain aspects of indian culture that is funny to those from India.
