Are You an American?

Only in America!! – Very Funny

We yell for the Government to balance the budget, then take the last dime we have to make the down payment on a car.

We yell for speed laws that will stop fast driving, then won’t buy a car if it can’t go over 100 miles an hour.

Americans get scared to death if we vote a billion dollars for education, then are unconcerned when we find out we are spending three billion dollars a year for cigarettes.

We’ll spend half a day looking for vitamin pills to make us live longer, then drive 90 miles an hour on slick pavement to make up for lost time.

We tie up our dog while letting our sixteen year old son run wild.

We will work hard on a farm so we can move into town where we can make more money so we can move back to the farm.

In the office we talk about baseball, shopping or fishing, but when we are out at the game, the mall or on the lake, we talk about business.

We are the only people in the world who will pay $. 50 to park our car while eating a $. 25 sandwhich.

We’re the country that has more food to eat than any other country in the world and more diets to keep us from eating it.

We run from morning to night trying to keep our earning power up with our yearning power.

We’re supposed to be the most civilized nation on earth, but we still can’t deliver payrolls without an armored car.

We have more experts on marriage than any other country in the world and still have more divorces.

Dear Readers, please share if you have some other funny lines about USA. 🙂

    Dear Sara,
    I’ve been meaning to let you know that I’ve been a subscriber of your site, but
    sadly you have made the page unable to be copied. One of the biggest reason
    about stories and jokes is that I like them to share with y family and friends.
    I’m a Physician, and don’t have time to write the entire thing.
    Please consider my suggestion or I’ll have no choice but to unsubscribe.

    As an Australian, I have my issues with America, but, while I find these facts interesting, I consider them to be sad rather than funny. Alhmadu lillah there are people who are able to live in western countries by a different set of values.
