25 Things That Americans Love That Are Actually Not American

To get this out of the way right from the beginning – this is just a joke. It’s meant to be funny. We know how nationalistic the world has become these days, which can make it harder for good spirited jokers like ourselves to not get beat up by overly patriotic thugs. So let us reiterate – our goal is to make people laugh, not make you angry. With that said, let’s get to business. When we say “non-American,” we are broadly referring to things that are simply not American. While some of these may be taken to be “un-American” (authoritarianism, dictatorship), others are more just….not American. For example, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Either way, none of these were initially American, but America seems to have adopted them wholesale.

And just to be clear, we’d like to add a second disclaimer here. We realize that America is a huge country that represents a phenomenally vast number of political and social views. For this reason, some of these obviously only refer to a few people, be it politicians, rednecks, or whoever else. So, get ready for some fun because from pizza to the Statue of Liberty, these are the 25 Things That Americans Love That Are Actually Not American!
