Website Wednesday: I am a Real American


P.T. Barnum antics aside, I wanted to share this website with you.  As you may recall, I’m a fan of Microsoft’s “I’m a PC” campaign.  And I like web sites with user-generated content. So it’s only natural that I’d enjoy I’m a Real American

From the “Welcome” section:

This site was put together in response to some people thinking that there are two kinds of Americans: real Americans, and, uh … false Americans?

We’re here to disabuse them of that idea.

We are all real Americans. We are all here together. And we are here to face the issues of our times as a nation.

Yes, there’s a political bent to the site, but regardless of which side of the aisle you’re on, the videos are pretty amusing.  The format of the clips is the same: “Hi, My name is _____.  I _______.  And I’m a Real American.”

My favorite so far is Shane.  “Hi, my name is Shane.  I like METAL…and PORN… And WEED.  And I’m a Real American.”  Rock on, Shane.

I’m considering contributing to the site… Drhuv already stole my “I hate tunafish” line, so what would mine say?

“Hi, I’m Cari.  I have a little dog.  And I’m a Real American”

“Hi, I’m Cari. I’m worried about education, the war, and the economy.  And I’m a Real American.”

“Hi, I’m Cari. I’m 29 years old and I still have a crush on Donnie Wahlberg.  And I’m a Real American.”

Any other thoughts? What would yours say??
