The name of a mostly European import living on a big continent divided in two geographical parts: South America, and North America.
_"Hi, I am from Uruguay."
_"All right, you're American?"
Usually an American is a moderately intelligent person (usually associated with the U.S.A.) who lacks all common sense of self fault. Arrogant most of the time and feels that their country is better than all else (even though they are coming close to an end as a nation) I know this very well because I am an "American" though at many times i prefer the term individual.
When Obama passes this health bill, american's which have an inability to admit fault, will drastically shorten the time left of their nation.
A funny speaking person from america, yanks
, their president is a physcopath. their accents are very funny indeed and most of them are obese
Person1 visting america: Jebus
christ look at all these fat-ass americans... >.>
fat american: (-.-)
Lesser version of Canadians. Sure, you may be much larger, and produce SOME good shit, but really they are a bunch of belligerent morons. If you are looking for a good example, GEORGE BUSH. Often caught picking on their much more civilized (but also awesome party ANIMALS) neighbors to the north.
The only reason we deal with you guys is you are our number one trade partner, and you'd probably just blow us to bits.
Like I said; morons.
p.s free health care
"STFU you stupid american"
I am so sick of the stereotyping... yes, this has been done before, but I don't care, here it goes again.
Our country is the coalescence of just about every other culture in the world. Although most Europeans think of the average American as being a fat WASP, this is simply not true. There is so much diversity in the nation that it's too hard to generalize.
I am pretty modest and hate bragging, but I have to say that I am fairly intelligent/articulate. I cannot wait to see the rest of the world in its entirety. So many Americans around me feel the same way.
Although some people can be ignorant, I resent them, and the same is true of any other culture anywhere.
I will have a celebration the day George W. Bush is out of office. He is perhaps the worst president our country has ever seen... and can certainly stand next to Millard Filmore in the hall of shame. The fact that he was re-elected, it just blows my mind.
But I digress. Back to the point, Americans are not one people. In the same way that British citizens, Frenchmen and Middle Easterners cannot be typified. Our country has accumulated a terrible reputation over the years... but I hope to make friends in other countries anyway.
Say what you will about our excuse for a government, but please, don't think of us in the same light.
British person: Americans are stupid, fat, lazy, ignorant people with nothing to add to this planet.
American person: You're stupid, lazy and ignorant for just saying that. Look beyond the rep.
A term used by old British folk in a bar/pub for ginger ale.
American = ginger ale
Old man in pub: "I'll have a scotch and american, please."
Barmaid: "do you want ice?"
a person who, judging by all the other comments, doesn't appreciate funny stereotypes.
non-american: all americans are fat.
american: what? i'll going to shot you with my gun whilst eating this burger and send you to hell with the devil!
