Have you ever wondered why so many people throughout the world hate us? Is it our arrogance? Our wealth? Our obsession with celebs? Our fast and loose morals? Our military might? Taylor Swift? Sorry, Kanye got that one right. I argue none of these. The fear and loathing for all things American can be answered in one simple made up word. Douche-baggery. I've never watched the nightly news in Islamabad, Kuwait, or any of the other countries that are basically giant litter boxes. That disclaimer aside, I'd be willing to wager they run continuous reels of us, mostly white folks, doing retarded shit. When you are sitting in a mud hut in some third world dung pile, your battered wife holding the rabbit ears of your 12 inch black and white, as you eat your goat sandwich, some douche bag comes across the screen, carrying his douche baggage. If you happen to be Amir the angry goat herder, it's got to piss you off. "How the fuck did these people not only manage to survive natural selection, but thrive? I have to wear this hot ass beard and wool snuggie, with no a/c, whilst these capitalist dogs taunt Allah and flirt with death."
Don't get me wrong, I could not care less what any other country thinks of us. I just can't help but wonder what we look like when some outsider sees images of some nimrod showing his ass.

If there was any justice in this world, there would have been more than a few of these clowns swept out to see and devoured by sharks. Small ones. Slowly.
