Probablly the most bashed on country in the world.
Things you should know:

1. Yes, we are aware the term "American" can be used for anyone living in North or South America. The term "British" can be used for someone from Scottland, Ireland, or England. What else do you want us to call ourselves, United-Statesians? Besides, I don't see you calling people from Brazil or Argentina or Cuba American anyways. Why should we?

2. Yes, we are aware our President shows serious signs of mental retardation. All goverments have their problems.

3. We're not stupid. We don't go around speaking "American", laughing at all other "American" speaking countries thinking they stole the idea from us.

4. We're not all crazy extremists or blind conservatives.

5. Your country probally produces almost as much pollution as ours, and seeing as the US is about 3,718,695 cm2 (9,631,420 km2; gasp! an American knowing about the metric system? unheard of!) large and has 302,431,000 citizens, we're not doing that bad.

6. Celsuis- Farheniet, Meters- feet, Pounds- killograms. Gallons- liters. We use both you know.

7. We don't hate all Canadians, Brits, Cubans, and Japaneese people. We don't think all Muslims are terrorists. No matter what Bush says, we most definitely don't eat "freedom fries". We don't all support Iraq. We don't think Pakistan is in Africa.

8. Just because we can't trace our ancestors in America back for 329 years, it doesn't mean we love our country less.

9. Patrioism is never a bad thing. Even if you lived in the crappiest country in the world, it's still your country.

10. No, we don't think everyone in the world celbrates July Fourth with us.

11. We don't eat McDonald's everyday or drive five cars.

12. Not everyone speaks like their from Texas. There are forty-nine other states you know.

13. We don't think we're better than you.

14. Lastly, half the people that bash us are allies with us. Our country has relations in more than half the world. Most likely, we're best friends.
British: "They're bloody pricks too. Look at Bush."

French: "Look at Iraq. What a dumb mistake."

American: "Dude, we know our president's an ass."

A native of the most despised nation on earth. Probably obscenely fat.
Person 1: "Look, there's one of the tiny number of Americans that's ever travelled abroad."
Person 2: "Christ, he's fat. I detest him, and his culture."

Added to every nationality possible in an attempt to make everyone politically correct. This is done even if the person's family has lived in America for centuries.
~African-American huh? What part of Africa?
-Philadelphia.

~Irish-American? When did you come over?
-I was born in Boston

There is no way to unify like making tiny differences painfully clear!

The most generous, emphatic people on Earth.
And I'm English!
Just bought a £5 quick shop from my convenience store, an American was stood behind me. Based on true experience with Americans.

Checkout Clerk: Sorry, your Credit Card has been rejected.

Me:(Searching pockets, wallet, don't find any cash.) Well, I don't have any more cash on me.

American: Don't worry about it, I'll pay for ya'!

Americans are pretty amazing, not going to lie! ;) We are powerful, smart, brave, and generous! Just so you know, I am an American and I have travelled to almost every country in the world, I aced geography which is (oh yeah) REQUIRED to pass lower school so i doubt that any Americans can't locate Europe or anywhere else on a map, I have never ever even been inside a fast food restaurant in my life (shocker eh?), and there is not ONE fat person in my entire private school!!
Person 1 = look at that tall, attractive, well groomed, well dressed, polite guy with amazing teeth!
Person 2 = must be American! :)

A citizen of the United States.

Use of the word is often a point of contention for Europeans, South Americans, and other Pussies in general.

Americans are stereotyped as fat, lazy, or Imperialist.
"Fat" due to getting off their ass and Work for a living, instead of relying on government to shit them a meal from the minute conditions are 100% ideal.

"Lazy" due to the fact the United States is the most productive nation on the Entire damned planet Per Capita AND GDP, and the average U.S. worker pulls more hours than any Fucking lazyass country in Europe. (Look it the fuck up.)
I suppose that debunks that load of retarded european horse shit entirely.

Americans are referred to as "imperialists" because in 200 years they accomplished more than europe put together.

They are called imperialists for their tradition of warring with democracies. Wait... we've never Gone to war with a democracy? Well I'll be damned. Guess that seperates us from alot of other countries then.

While Europeans are busy with a fantasy of having the next Hitler or Stalin's cock up in their asshole, Americans ruin their dream by bombing their boyfriend straight to hell before they can become a threat to world peace. Like it should be.

"Americans" arrived from the fact that 2 entire continents-worth of other countries either do not really fucking matter, or is ruled by a form of dictatorship and live as pathetic cringing slave pussies.

Much like West and Eastern europe, really.
European: I Hate Amerikkka!
European really thinking: American, why don't you guys just let us get conquered already. I Like being a bitch, dammit.

An American is a fat arrogant bastard - usually armed to the teeth with guns and hamburgers - who hates everything and everyone who doesn't hate everything and everyone. Also he may be inbred.
British person: I'm British, Where are you from?
American "half-human": I am an American and so have the right to carry and gun and rape my chickens.
*British and French run quickly for fear of being shot by mentally unstable man who managed to pass the gun test*
