New article on ¡Vaya Madrid!–American and Spanish Culture
I have a new article on ¡Vaya Madrid! and this time it’s not about weird food.
It’s about cultural differences… Check it out!
(Updated: now it’s right here on the Chorizo Chronicles, because ¡Vaya Madrid! is kaput.)
Spanish Culture vs American Culture
In the new article, I go into:
- How what you consider “fat” is totally relative to how fat people are around you.
- How Americans work too hard and don’t know how to relax.
- How we’re all puritans who worry that seeing a nipple between ages 3 and 18 will turn you into a sex-addict degenerate, and…
- How when an American hits rock bottom, his life is still great by Spanish standards.
Got it? Good!
In other news, the Euro-Redneck LOLcat aficionados over on Reddit don’t like it when I point out that their whole continent is full of, well, Eurorednecks like them.
And they think anybody observant enough to notice that they’re rednecks must, himself, be some sort of fat, ignorant American.
Oh well… Who cares?
I still don’t think that Europeans are much more civilized than Americans… LOLcat aficionados be damned!
I try to generalize equally about Americans and Europeans, just to avoid being too controversial.
