    Beg to differ...

    but this story is a hoax and a very common internet joke.

    Here are some links that prove the point.

    On the other hand, the joke does convey the attitude of Americans. I can attest to that, living here.

  3. Arzan,

    As they say 'Where is smoke there is fire', this story might be a HOAX and just a common internet joke...but as you said it does reflect the mentality/attitude of the Americans.

    And thats what the story/joke is meant to convey.
