American Things I Just Don't Get

The following concepts in Americana perplex me:

American Idol: Sadistic show meant to spark ridicule and scorn while rewarding a lucky few.

Birkenstocks: The absolute most ugly footwear ever made. Why would one ever want to be seen in public with them on?

Super Size fast food: Does anyone really need a pound of fries and a huge greasy triple burger for a meal of one sitting?

Oprah Winfrey: She is a cult figure now who uses her show to further feminist orthodoxy.

Tattoos: These are for narcissistic and short-term thinking people. Most regret getting them after a few months.

Lack of Geographical Knowledge: We seem to think that only the USA matters in the world. Learn where the Balkans, the Caucasus, the Falklands, and the Azores are for crying out loud!
