    I think American humor is simply stupid and obvious.
    No, not at all

    You seemed pretty intent on it your first post. Is it only acceptable for people to tell jokes that mention the country they're from, now?

    Yet, I pointed out that it is not specifically humor that is produced in America that I dislike. Let me remind you:

    Maybe it's just that you're a bad listener, fib. I think that my statement that you quoted and used as an example of bashing America, would be the same as when saying, when 'Freedom Fries' were known as 'French Fries', 'French Fries simply taste bad and they have no crisp', would be bashing France.

    heh, looks to me as if you're trying to provoke me, fib. Well, just a lil' hint for you, I am in no means proud to be a Swede. This country can go in whatever way it wants to, I don't care about any nation, I only care about certain people, and I despice nationalism and patriotism.

    Ok, maybe you want another example. What about bashing America by saying that the 'American van' is too big and consumes too much fuel, even though it would be manufactured by Wolkswagen in Germany?

    Do these connect in any way? It's an insult to me as a Swede, because by me being a Swede, whether I'm proud of it or not, some people will have prejudices about me.

    It's not about whether the specific examples that I stated are exaclty true or not, it's about that there are examples, and I think you know that.

    Ok, this is getting more complicated, and now fib is just being ironic. So I decide to end it here, for my part. My point was that I did not bash America.
