I like the peanut butter sammitch ones. Dipped in cranberry juice, but that's just me.

My mom used to freeze them to discourage us from gorging ourselves on them, but that just trained us to prefer them cold.

does anyone else here find it extremely obnoxious when people refer to the US as America?

Tadao Jan 15th, 2011 12:26 AM

I suppose you want to change the lyrics to the national anthem as well. :rolleyes

USians?

Fathom Zero Jan 15th, 2011 12:37 AM

It's America. I think it's pompous to call it the United States. As though it's the only group of united regions in the world.

Wiffles Jan 15th, 2011 01:34 AM

But America is a continent. Wouldn't that offend other Americans living in other parts not in the USA?

We should just call it, Mexico and Canada's DMZ Buffer Zone.

Fathom Zero Jan 15th, 2011 01:47 AM

Hey, it was America first. Everyone else opted out. Or got killed.

I think that's the problem. What else do you call them? United Staters and Statesiders were the two prominent ones from a poll that I remember from a few years ago. Seppos was third, Yank was probably fourth.

Who cares what other people call us. Part of being American is self entitlement to do whatever the fuck we want. I'm sure South America and Canada are gonna put up a fight. :rolleyes

Seppos? WTF?

Pentegarn Jan 15th, 2011 09:00 AM

Yeah I have heard of all of those except seppos. So I do what I always do when I am baffled by slang, I turn to the urban dictionary

The politically correct people just call us US citizens, I don't see why that's not good enough.

most people already call us the US, just like they call the United Kingdom the UK. It's way less pompous/arrogant than America.

Kitsa Jan 15th, 2011 10:34 AM

Somehow I've gotten through a lifetime here without referring to it as much of anything. This is also my strategy for nebulous "call me ___" situations when I feel uncomfortable doing so.

I think of the name situation as arbitrary and inflammatory, like correcting someone's misspeak when everyone knew what they meant.
