Hilarious Twitter account, No Context Brits showcases the best of British humour

A Twitter account is fast becoming a viral sensation for poking fun at the quirky and mundane parts of British life.

Updated with pictures daily, the  account, No Context Brits captures random and amusing moments – which could only happen in the UK. 

The page was started in April 2021, but has already amassed an impressive 346,000 followers with hilarious snaps of shop signs, strangers doing funny things and screengrabs loaded with irony.

The collection includes a picture of a plaque on a park bench ‘in memory’ of a friend who is alive but anti-social, as well as a chip shop with a sign up saying it was ‘too hot to open’.

It also includes a picture taken of an anonymous commuter on the platform on a London Underground station who seemed to think you have to stick your hand out to stop the tube. 

Here, FEMAIL reveals some of the funniest and most bizarre pictures from the account…
