    Bear Claws and Apple Fritters are the chocolate cake of the donut shop... You would have to have worked in a commercial bakery to know what I mean...

    Usans speak Usanese.

    There, it is settled.

    Now let it spread like wildfire.

    If a person from Vermont is a Vermonter, wouldn't a person from the US be a User?... <scratching head>

    That’s a movie/cultural phenom I am not familiar with. Internally, the Buck family has been using that term since the 70s...after a trip to Canada...

    I think that people who object to us being called Americans should be obliged to call us "USAians" or United Statesians". Maybe then they'll realize how ridiculous they are being.

    Yes, you are correct. Congrats! You know basic 1st grade geography.

    I am a U.S. citizen as all. I get it.

    Truth is, you can call anyone from Europe a European, but you are more likely to call them German, British, Scottish, Italian, French, etc.

    So the whole argument is stupid. Yes, you can call them North Americans. We are called "Americans" because it designated us from the British.

    Calling ourselves united statesians kinda sucks ass, wouldn't you agree?

    I *wish* these were easy geography questions. Then I see a video like this.

    It's hard to believe that is real if it weren't so true (and incredibly sad). I just don't know how a person in the US in this day and age can be that incredibly ignorant (you can't even point out the US on the map??)!!
