Recently, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared on an Australian television program to discuss ‘Merican stuff with two Aussie comedians in tuxedos (video here). In the four-minute clip, they cover topics such as ordering dinner with Bill (I’d bet my life on the fact that Bill Clinton laughs every time someone orders “fish tacos”), and popular misconceptions about Americans. During their discussion of the latter, she says:
“If you look at American TV, as much of the rest of the world does, you would think we all went around wrestling and wearing bikinis.”
Now you hold on. Are you implying that there’s something wrong with wrestling and girls in bikinis? Or wrestling girls in bikinis? Well, excuuuuse me, Ms. ClassyOrganicChaiTeaSustainableAgrobusiness. Seriously. You think you can tell us what do? You think you can tell us what to wear? You think that you’re better? Better get ready… to bow to the masters! BREAK IT DOWN! (*climbs top rope, spits water onto crowd, makes “suck it” gesture with arms repeatedly*)
Seriously, though. I can’t imagine what would give foreigners that impression of Americans.
After the jump, what gives foreigners that impression of Americans.
