The US is being kicked in the groin by China and most other countries. The USA is a joke in Math. I've travelled around and hear the jokes. Why is this? Is it because US Math teachers suck so bad? Or is it because US math students suck so bad? It has to be one or the other, because the US in Math is a world joke.
USAers in general are kind of a joke these days. Their politicians mostly seem really slow, and they invade countries on thin pretenses and never apologize.
Remember when then President Bush came on TV and made fun of himself looking for WMDs, crawling around looking under pillows and stuff. Who has a link?
That was like a nadir of USA power, as the national sovereign abased himself in a laugh track scenario after the fate of so many had been sealed by this nation's evident blunders.
The US doesn't really have a "groin" so your mixed metaphor comes across as the kind of humorous ignorant thing a USAer might say.
You live up to the stereotype adding humor and color to your ethnic spin.
The US is a world joke, yes, but probably not for reasons you understand -- why the joke remains funny, even as this thread unfurls.
