Thread Name: Patronising jokes about Americans
Subject: RE: Patronising jokes about Americans
I believe that the most truly patronising and/or insulting thing to say about Americans or to include in jokes about Americans is to refer to them as "colonials"; that's a sure winner (but I don't recommend it). Another good way to get under an American's skin is to make fun of his/her accent.
