    1.Bromwell is funny because it is an off the wall exaggeration of public
    schools. By exaggerating it, we can laugh at its absurdity.
    Exaggeration is one of the oldest forms of comedy, and it can be traced
    through time, through Commedia del'Arte in Medieval Italy, through
    Roman political pieces, and through Greek festivals.

    2. Some lines are a bit more clever than people give them credit for. an example "I'm retiring because I won the lottery!" "How much did you win?" "180 pounds." "Well that won't last long" " I said I'm retiring. You can't stop me. No-one can stop me!"

    3. Most "clean" jokes, as people call them, were done long, long ago. They could either be original and funny, or be "clean".

    i love bromwell high.. but you are insulting it if those are the only reasons you can think of which make it funny.

    Having only recently left school, it has a surprising resemblence to British secondary schools - heavily underfunded, teachers who walk around the staff room repeating "i hate school, i hate school", and of course, the lovable (im guessing) cypriot headmaster who sells playgrounds to be used to build tower blocks.

    I think it is because Keisha and Latrina are always doing bad things, but don't seem to care very much.
