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.

American's are known for a lot of things. We're known to have some of the most popular fast-food chains, the biggest movie stars, and the most colorful cereals. But that's just a bit about our culture. We are also known to have a lot of people who will occasionally say some less-than-smart things. But hey, not everyone can be an academic, some people are meant to entertain.

On this Fourth Of July, please allow yourself to be entertained by some of these interesting statements made by your fellow Americans.

epic fourth of july party tips | thumbnail text - a very famous duel in American history took place between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.

Woman Gets Roasted And Toasted On Twitter After Posting About Healthy Vs Unhealthy Food Prices

Food insecurity is a real issue in the US. Depending on your age, budget, and location, the kinds of food you have access to can be extremely different. In most major cities you can find a wide variety of cheap meals, and bargain prices even on healthy foods. But if you live in a more rural area, unless you are lucky enough to have a garden or farm nearby, the closest place to grab food might be a Mcdonald's or a little gas station.

Twitter user @dremilyportermd struck a conversation online about the major food price differences between her local grocery store and her local Mcdonald's. Some people support her assertions, but other people have strong counter-arguments.

I just got a double cheeseburger, small fries and large Diet Coke at McDonald's for $3.25 so please stop fat shaming or blaming the single mom of 2 working for $7.25/hour for her "unhealthy choices" or high blood pressure when non-organic raspberries are $8.96/pound at Walmart. 10:27 PM · Apr 14, 2021 · Twitter for iPhone 4,147 Retweets 277 Quot
