Pretty much nailed it.

(This post is a response to doubts about our collective Americanness! And I'm just kidding. (Mostly.))

  3. This is an all time classic :LOL: :lol:

    Positroll, we Americans don't do African.

    I think the map was wrong about China. Most Americans like Chinese, see them as rich and successful capitalists who study all the time; we don't see them as communists. Its Ruskies that we are suspicious about. Maybe the Ruskies are the commies?

  5. "Positroll, we Americans don't do African."
    Considering the current US presidents ancestry, I'd guess the map is a little older ...
    (which also explains communist Russia, with China "making our stuff" ...)

    "Mexico does our laundry? I thought they sent us drugs and cheap labor."
    Money laundering! ;-)
