This weeks post came to fruition due to a thought I had….”If most of the world hates America so much and trash talks them, why do they eat their trash?” Being Canadian, and having traveled to many places where I’ve mingled with locals, I have witnessed quite a bit of trash talk about Americans. Heck, even on the news in the EU I heard a lot of anti American statements….and I will admit, I laughed my ass off!
What really boggles my mind though is, despite all the criticism, it’s always the American chain that goes global…..WHY? Seriously, why would anyone want to follow anything that has to do with the lifestyle of a country that has one of the highest rates of obesity, a crap load of debt AND a many citizens who wouldn’t even be able to locate on a map 50% of the countries where American franchises have set up shop due to lack of awareness of anything outside their bubble?…..it’s even funnier when they have too much pride/ego to admit they’re not familiar with something….reminds me of this show that was popular here a while back, and my god I wish it would come back LOL fast forward to 4:30 to hear about the Toronto Polar Bear slaughter, lmao….this will leave you all speechless…
Ok, anyway, back to my main point about foreign investment in American franchises, WHY? The only theory I can think of…..there’s drugs in those burgers, why do you think they call it a happy meal!? *wink wink* and there’s drugs in that Starbucks coffee! What else could it be? I mean…why haven’t any of the Canadian chains gone global? Second Cup is really comparable to Starbucks, some of their drinks are even better! We just haven’t exploded cause we’re lacking drugs!
Here’s a prime example of how even some of the strongest anti Americans can be warped by the drugs, fast forward to 4:40
I wish I could say to everyone don’t do drugs….but I’m pretty guilty of that one myself (Starbucks is hard to say no to) How sad is this, I feel I’ve found the solution to a major global problem…..it’s really so simple, just put the drugs down! but how do we do it when we’re all just a bunch of addicts…..I guess one of the positive outcomes of all of this is, in 20 years or so the signs of all Starbucks and other American chains all around the world (including America) will look like this and we will all be greeted with “Ni hao” 😉 and if you don’t understand that last comment about everything eventually being Chinese…..maybe do some reading and watch the news before you come back to my blog 😛
