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."

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! :)

me: Gross! why on earth do you think America is the whole world??!!

Any white person born in North America (excluding Canada), as a result of a white slut's excessive cum-swallowing through her vaginal cavity which is also as big as North America, to adhere the crown of the world once Hollywood's Israel nukes the living shit out of Arabs, leaving behind only China and Russia as major imports of child pornography. Contrary to many theories, Americans are not dumbfuck retards, it's only a mere coincidence.
European: Name a country that starts with "U".
American: Hmmm...
European: Nevermind

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'!

Citizens who live inside a big bubble between Canada and Mexico.

Americans makes up less than 5% of the worlds population yet 95% of the worlds ignorance and arrogance.

Traits and habits-

Calling themselves the only Americans despite the fact that ALL people living on the CONTINENT of America are Americans.

Calling things by their brand names rather than the name of the actual object or item.

Putting their country first in every online list despite the fact the United States starts with a U and the lists are in alphabetical order.

Putting an American flag next to 'English' for language selection incase they forget what language they speak.

Making fun of the metric system, despite the fact that they are one of only three countries who are yet to start using it. The rest of the world has been using it for over 50 years.

Killing each other is also a favourite pastime. More Americans are murdered by other Americans every year than all the American casualties of every war the world has ever seen. Pretty sad statistic.

Not all Americans are fat and stupid, and not all the world are anti-American. We just dont like arrogant ignorant idiots. It just so happens that The United States is always represented by arrogant ignorant idiots.

All the Americans who give a thumbs up are the exception to the rule who can actually think for themselves and can hopefully start representing their country in a better light.
Americans - LOL. He spelled favorite with a U. Everyone knows theres no U.

Brit- Actually, the entire english speaking world beside you, use it. It was an established language long before you were around.

American - Fuck you . I'm Americaaaaaaaaaaaan! Aluminum!

Australian - You do realise the metal is actually called Aluminium?

South African - Aluminium foil because its made from the metal ALUMINIUM.

Kiwi - Aluminium sheeting made from ALUMINIUM.

Canadian - check your periodic table.

American - You're wrong, and Realize has a Z not an S.

Brit - *sigh* thats YOUR spelling. The rest of us use S not Z.

American - LOL. You said ZED when its ZEE. Im Americaaaaaaaaan!
