Nate's Guide to Joe Blogs Guide to America #1

Joe Blogs is a British bloke who is writing a guide to America. Upon his request, I have responded to his blog.

"There are 51 states, the 51st being the movie featuring Samuel L. Jackson, and Robert Carlyle."
Actually the 51st state is Canada. Sorry Puerto Rico, I know we said you were next, but uh...maybe next time.

"The President is George W. Bush. The USA is still a bit like the old west, Bush wants Bin Laden, Dead or Alive. I believe Clint Eastwood is on his trail for a fistful of dollars."
Actually, The US is much more like the future...say 2029 when the Terminator is now a state Governor.

"Celebrities are treated like British royalty. Brad Pitt and Anjolina Jolie are practically King and Queen. Well they do fly Monarch Airlines at least. The family are the Pitts though. And then you have Prince..."
Hmmm...I'm not comfortable claiming Prince as our own. We might treat our celebrities like British Royalty, but Prince acts like British Royalty. He's from Minnesota, but I'm going to assume he snuck over the Canadian border (before it was made a US State).

"Most of Americas clothes are dirty. They are X rated. XXXL that is."
America: More Cushion for the Pushin'.

"The cops love donuts. The teenagers love doing donuts in cop cars."
Guilty as charged.

"The Baseball World Series is held only in America, with American teams."
The Majority of the Major League Baseball Players were not born in America.

"US TV series are shown all around the world. So if this is an indication of the culture, it consists of, Friends, Desperate Housewives, Wife Swap, American Idols, and Sex In The City, and that's just on a Thursday night."
Sounds like somebody is jealous. If you don't like it you can get LOST, or head down to 24 to work out, or go hang out with some of those SCRUBS you call friends.

Go check out Joe Blogs.
The facts above may not be entirely true and are most likely completely false.
