Juxtaposition in comedy

Why I think this is a great example.

I love the use of language as an insider code that paints the cultured air, while the visual clues are of a different world entirely.

I also love the idea (one Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse explore later on in other sketches) that there are construction workers who appreciate the arts, and it is not the preserve of some snob elite.
