People can be so funny!!!! Especially us AMERICANS!

Background Music: Dueling Banjos

Mood: Confused and a bit offended

Reaction taken: Read on!


Sitting in the chatroom last night I got to witness yet another misconception of Americans. I know the chatter that said this was only half kidding but it reiterates what is always being concieved about americans!

First off, he came in and announced how "WIERD" americans were. I asked exactly what was meant by that and he says to not get him wrong he thinks we are fun too! Ok, I feel better now.

I know it is fairly easy to diss on us "loony, crazy, wack-o's" that hail from across the big pond but not ALL of us have this label sewn into our asses. We are people just like everyone else....well almost like evryone else!

I am american and proud to be, I will be the first to admit that some things we do and some things that our country has involved itself in has been a bit less than stellar, but, that is not the average joe-blow! The average Joe-Blow has a brain and can count past 10, has an IQ higher than most shoe sizes and does not refer to their sister as their girlfriend. The misconceptions of Americans has been a long standing joke all over the world....we take the punishment and allow ourselves to be ridiculed and we keep our lives going on and on.....doesn't everyone all over the world do that??? I thought so......

So, when being described as "Wierd but Fun" ....I will take that cause I AM ......but I do also carry a brain and feelings as does every living soul in the world!

In the 'Tub' we just stand back, watch the touch paper slowly burn and expect you to STAND UP for your beliefs, a very good American and Freetime trait.
