I just trolled an ugly american. It is like shooting fish in a barrel. They can’t even see that they are fulfilling the stereotype.
From the Wikipedia entry on Ugly American
A study carried out in 2002 revealed that Hollywood also contributes to the “Ugly American” image. The study found that the more access other countries had to American programs, the higher their negative attitudes toward Americans tended to be.
I really question friends and family that decide to live and work south of the 49th. You couldn’t pay me enough to surround myself with the uglies.
There are many reasonable Americans too, I have met many, but there’s no getting around the fact that the ugly ones ruin whatever the reasonable ones may be up to.
