    Do Americans take themselves too seriously?

    Just came across this and it got me to thinking you never see this kind of taking the piss humour from the U.S.
    Do Americans take themselves too seriously? Would this kind of thing have them running for their safe spaces, lawyers 'cause their feelings got hurted?

    Whaddaya think.

    If we stop testing right now wed have very few cases, if any. Donald J Trump.

    I don’t think any nation has a strangle hold on self deprecation or satire. Similarly no one nation stands out for taking themselves too seriously.

    Interesting choice of stimulus, but quite limited if you’re trying to prove a point.

    Some Americans do take themselves too seriously. Most of them are trumpanzee snowflakes and religious nutters.

    Just about all of them have no sense of humor whatsoever.

    those two clips above are from a bygone era. I think in todays world they would have people clutching pearls and reaching for the smelling salts before canceling them.

    "[And] our results showed that Americans do not have better teeth than the English," he added. "In fact, they had significantly more missing teeth, and inequalities in oral health were much worse in the U.S. compared to England."

    Are British Teeth Really Worse Than U.S. Teeth?

    Some Americans labour under the delusion that when they talk, the whole world must listen. But only some. You can usually spot them out when they start parroting about "the American way". Boring people.

    Some Aussies labour under the delusion that everyone likes 'em, 'cus they're Aussie. But only some. Kinda off topic though kW.

    Agreed for sure. Misskit only liked it because she was at school with him. I think she was the headmistress

    I think the only Americans that take themselves too seriously are those that are...or think they are...influencers.
