When foreigners were funny
Thirty years ago, humorist P.J. O’Rourke wrote a satirical article entitled “Foreigners Around the World”, which was published in the May 1976 issue of the National Lampoon magazine. I found this article while searching for something else.
Like all articles in National Lampoon, it was humorous, not serious. But who could imagine such a politically-incorrect piece being published at all today, let alone in a national magazine with a circulation of over 1,000,000?
For the curious, I am providing a link. Don’t go there if you don’t want your funny bone tickled AND your political-correctness meter twitched.
Now, in the interest of “fair and balanced, I am sure the USA-bashers among you will be happy to write a couple of paragraphs about Americans. 🙂
