You’re not funny. You are an intolerant, ignorant “ugly American,” and it’s people like you that give the rest of us a bad name. With loud-mouthed people like you, it’s no wonder so many foreigners can’t stand us.

Nice try with the observational humor, but you’re just plain not funny. Just long-winded and babbling. Please stop writing. For the love of God, please stop writing.[/readermail]

The first paragraph I can easily ignore, because that’s what Americans do when they feel uncomfortable.

But that second paragraph? I’ve been telling myself that one every day for years.
