Sister America


So, in Scandinavia the stereotypical American woman is basically Paris Hilton, but prettier and with bigger fake breasts. I’m sorry. :(

We do of course have plenty of girls looking like that here too, but they’re seen as copying American girls.

The thing about Americans is that we always see them as unhealthy, be they fat or skinny. If they’re skinny it just because they don’t eat at all and have had plastic surgeries. Like, they can be some of the prettiest people in the world, but in the most unhealthy way possible. That’s how the stereotype goes anyway. :XD:

And America is indeed spray tanned. He wasn’t originally supposed to stay that way, but then someone mentioned spray tanning and I thought it was too funny to ignore.
I just feel bad about telling you this because a lot of people seemed so happy that he was Latin American. But the truth needs to be told!

lol, I guess my suggestion for jokes about the US and tanning beds was a bit moot. Oops, maybe I should read more before I comment, although then I'd have to go back and that sounds like too much work, so no. I'm American, I'm allowed to be lazy.

While the stereotypes listed in this comic and the explanation are certainly not true of every American, there is much truth to them, when generalizing and comparing to other countries, especially the Scandinavian ones. When I lived in Norway, I was really embarrassed sometimes for my country when I saw our tourists. Too many of them were self-centered, ignorant, obese, and stuck out like a sore thumb. As a rule, Americans don't deal well with other cultures. And there are an appalling number of fake breasts here, which I don't get, considering how enormously unattractive I find them.

Simi, while TV and movies do play a huge role in the stereotypes of Americans, many of the ones you are thinking of pre-date the Kardashians, Bieber, and Jersey Shore. Those only reinforced the stereotypes, they didn't create them (given that some of those people weren't even born, and the rest were languishing in the obscurity that they never should have left, when I heard some of those stereotypes, it'd be impossible without time travel to blame them all on those knuckleheads). For example, when I lived there, some people (not many, but some) honestly thought that the guests on the Jerry Springer show were a representative sample of Americans, and the difference between those people and the people you listed is solely in how fast the individuals' 15 minutes were up. But I do agree that being in any way lumped in with the people you mentioned is far more aggravating.

Wow... I find it depressing that, while reading the comments from fellow Americans, none of them are correct. There are tons of American stereotypes. Tons. But the average American is Aryan. Almost every child you encounter has bright blue eyes and blond hair. I hate the stereotypes that have come about because of shitheads like the Kardashians and Justin Beamer (yep, I know that isn't it's name.) and Jersey Shore.
The most current, focused stereotype is that we're all muscle-headed morons with Oompa-Loompa tans and Fran Drescher accents, that get knocked up as young teens..

Wow, In america a stereotypical american girl is freckles, brown hair, blue eyes, muscly but a little curvy and equal parts tom boy and girly girl. Sister America looks like a stereotypical valley girl (an area of cali)

and I could kind of tell that America has a spray on tan, because if he'd gotten that from vacation, he'd have cancer.

The only people in the US that are like this (that I can think of) are selfish, rood, city people. So, basically 70% of the population.
