Things That Just Scream 'Murica, Heck Yeah!' In Honor Of America's Birthday

Happy 4th of July weekend y'all! We hope you're enjoying the peak of hot girl summer by downing red, white, and blue jello shots in a red, white, and blue bikini while listening to Lana del Rey's National Anthem on repeat. Or celebrating in your own special way that has nothing to with our questionable recommendations. After all, it's your world, babe. We're just livin' in it. At the same time, we have to admit that there are quintessentially American things, even if you might not relate. We uncovered a year-old Reddit thread about the most American things that sound absolutely crazy to non-Americans, and boy, we've never been prouder to be American after reading it. Scroll on down for a big, ol' dose of 'Murica.

Australians Brutally Roast American Food, And It Gets Personal

It really can feel like other countries love sh*tting on American culture, and honestly, we deserve it sometimes. We ain't perfect, we got our issues. We don't have free education, high-speed trains, or Kinder eggs — It's honestly a toss-up on which one is the most important of the three. For the most part, we can handle the outside criticism because, as they say, haters gonna hate. But once you start coming for our food it gets personal. Yes, our cheese can come out of a can, what of it?

Funny But Low-Key Legitimate Questions Americans Have For British People

British culture may be one of the most intriguing to Americans. In many ways we a very similar. We speak the same language, listen to similar music, even watch many of the same TV series. However, there are a few big traits that remind us that we are not the same. The accent is a big one, as well as our swear words and slang, and our food preferences. Marmite? No thanks, we're good.

Non-Americans Roast The Things They Truly Don't Understand About American Schools

There are so many movies and shows about American high schools. They seem extremely cheesy on the TV, but what a lot of non-Americans might not realize is how much of it is kind of accurate. Yes, we do say the pledge every day. We do have hall monitors. We also have cheerleaders and school presidents.

It already feels like I am writing the plot of a new TV show because that is just how ridiculous some of our norms seem.

Non-Americans Expose The Dumbest Thing An American Actually Said To Them

Americans are known for a lot of things. Some stereotypes are cool, like how we are known to have the craziest college experiences, fairly good customer service, and unlimited drink refills. These generalizations don't tend to bother anyone. However, there are less flattering ones as well... Unfortunately, Americans don't have the reputation of being the sharpest tools in the shed. Which, of course, is not always true! But after seeing these comments from TikTok, it might help you understand where this stereotype came from.

Embarrassingly Inaccurate Things Americans Posted On The Internet

Hey, we have all learned our lesson the hard way that what you put on the internet is permanent. Some of us have accidentally posted less-than-desirable selfies, sent a DM to the completely wrong person, or had a friend upload a super embarrassing video of us that nearly went viral. You cannot control the internet, it works in mysterious ways.

One thing is for sure though, some Americans really have a way with words. Sometimes they can't help but expose their... lack of worldliness whenever they post (with much confidence) some serious BS. We American's know that they are not the majority, but it still can be really embarrassing. Maybe this list can be used as motivation to increase funding for public schools? Just a thought.

Weird Stereotypes About America Which Foreigners Found Out Are Actually True

America likes to think that their culture is superior and nothing that they do is weird at all. They expect that everybody looks up to them from other countries and that they are basically the best in every way shape and form. As an American, I don't think I'm very qualified to be the one to burst this bubble, so I'll let Redditors do it for me.

People on Reddit are sharing the weird things that Americans do that they initially thought were just silly stereotypes from films and such, but are actually very true. Some of these cultural norms are less flattering than others.
