Funny and sad anecdote. Something I just remembered from some time ago.
A German ‘journalist’ was mocking Americans for being so unbelievably stupid. He found it hilarious and a confirmation of all the stereotypes.
There was a debate over whether Obama was qualified for being president. The journalist tried to make a case for how absurd it is to imagine any flaw in the new messiah by explaining that there are actually Americans who claim that Obama should not become president because he is an extraterrestrial! OMG LOL ROFL FACEPALM!
What had happened?
Only people who were born with the US nationality are allowed to become president. Not foreigners, immigrants or such. That moron of a wannabe-journalist had read the statement “Obama is an alien.” and only knew the Sci-Fi popculture meaning of that word; and didn’t care to look into it a bit more.
Enjoy the delicious irony.
There are so many potential morals to the story, but one is that if you feel superior, you better make damn sure you can back it up, haha.
