Fifteen Pandemic Memes For The Americans Still In Lockdown

While the rest of the world gets back to normal life, many of us Americans are still in near-full lockdown because of many people's refusal to wear masks. We don't really know what else to say, other than: wear the damn mask, people, because we're all sick of this BS.

Non-Americans Biggest Culture Shocks When Visiting America

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about non-Americans biggest culture shocks upon visiting America. It can be easy to forget how strange of a place America is, when you're living inside the bubble of chaos. A perspective from the outside looking in picks up on strange and normalized things like the sheer scale of food portions/drink sizes, or the over-sensationalized news, or those condescending commercials.

Lessons Non-USA Students Learn About America

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the various lessons that non-USA students learned about America. As it turns out, a fair number of students actually aren't even tasked with learning that much about America. Apparently Columbus and MLK are common talking points as well.

Pandemic-Related Memes And Tweets For People Who Are Sick Of The BS

It's really no secret that the American government and its people aren't exactly handling the pandemic well, while other countries have seen far more success in the dropping rates of infection. The moral of the story is: it's looking like this won't be over any time soon for us Americans, so we all might as well get comfortable being in lockdown for a long time, whether we like it or not. Cheers!

Extremely Specific Memes About Shotguns In WWI

If you're not a history expert or weirdly obsessed with WWI, the premise of these dank history memes may surprise you. Apparently, despite widespread use of deadly weapons such as the machine gun, Americans and their use of shotguns were the subject of an actual German protest in 1918. The Germans felt the guns were a form of terrorism, that the caused unnecessary suffering. Their protest was not taken seriously - especially because the Germans were using some pretty terrible weapons of their own. Chlorine gas, flamethrowers - even giant Zeppelin bombers.

The Germans were so appalled by the Winchester shotguns that they threatened to execute any Americans carrying the weapon. Their threats didn't sway the US Army, who kept using the guns. Some people even credit the weapons with the defeat of the Germans. Right now, the guns (and the protests surrounding them) are the subjects of an insane amount of history memes, mostly popping up in meme communities on Reddit. And they're pretty freakin' funny. We've put some of the better examples in this gallery, but we bet you can find some more if you creep around r/historymemes. Happy scrolling!

Brits And Americans Clash Repeatedly On Tumblr

These funny Tumblr moments do a great job at reflecting the interesting relationship between the Brits and Americans. Apparently comparing Hershey's to any chocolate sold in England is a mortal sin. Also that spicy banter about how the British call it "maths" while Americans call it "math" was enjoyable. It is mathematics, after all. 

Check out another clash of the cultures with this Tumblr post where cultures collided over unfair grading scales.

You know how some people laugh when they're nervous or anxious? Yeah, that's us right now with these memes. 2020's latest little surprise for us has been protests and riots in response to the tragic murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Accordingly, people have taken to the streets of major cities to protest police brutality and racism toward Black Americans. No one really knows what this all will amount to...revolution? More major government crackdowns? Whatever it is, we just want y'all to be safe.

And of course, if you plan to join the protests, be careful and wear a mask, because COVID-19 hasn't forgotten about us!

American Habits That Are So American

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going about the various American habits that Americans didn't realize were so American. Sometimes one has no idea how absurd their habits are, because they've been so normalized by the culture and society they're living in. The outside perspective can be quite eye-opening.
