America: The Rich, Fat Uncle

A good friend and I were discussing Thanksgiving and I started to think about how it must look to other countries for us to have a holiday where we stuff ourselves full of food and roll around on the couch watching football.

You know, I can’t believe Americans even publicize Thanksgiving. It should be like some dirty secret. America is like the rich, fat uncle who doesn’t tell the rest of his family he’s livin’ it up because he knows they’re so pathetic and starving that he’d have to share.

Sure, we should give thanks, but unless we’re going to give other people the reason to give thanks, shouldn’t we be a little more descrete about it? Why do you think people in other countries hate us?
