Banter is defined by what it tries and fails to be: spontaneous, funny, and tolerable.
Also known as "the wit of chavs".
Blackadder is showing Mr. and Mrs. Pants around a house, which he is trying to sell.
Mrs. Pants: "Strange smell."
Blackadder: "Yes, that's the servant - he'll be gone."
Mr. Pants: "You're really worked out your banter, haven't you?"
Blackadder: "No, not really. This is a different thing, it's spontaneous and it's called wit."
