funny stuff - and the truly amazing thing is... that billy bob and babs have made the US to be a country with the worlds largest economy (producing 20-25% of it), the worlds most powerful military, the worlds longest lasting democracy and greatest exporter of it, having defeated the soviet empire, the nazis, germans and the japanese - all while being "not particularly intelligent, open-minded, or well-liked" -
wonder what would have happened if I thought I was smart, pretended to be open minded while secretly being a cultural elitist and busy pandering to everyone? Why thats easy, I AM FRENCH!

Hey, I have another:
I AM MEXICAN
I am white, not dark skined, I'm tall not short.
I'm not a waiter, nor land worker, neither clean your house. I'm an executive for a leading company.
I don't know Jose, Juan or Jesus from East L.A., although I'm certain they must be pochos.
I drink any other thing than just Tequila, I don't eat tacos, tortillas and beans.
I pronounce "Good" not "Good-o ese".
I can proudly wave my country's flag, doing the wave after loosing a Soccer game.
A sombrero is a hat, and siesta is just a nap.
Mexico is your southern neighboor, just in case you didn't know.
And we have many funny things, but what you most like are our roids.
My name is Luis and I am Mexican.
¡VIVA MEXICO CABRONES!
