Americans ?

"In USA people call themselves Americans. This makes as much sense as if French people called themselves Europeans?"

So we should call ourselves United States of Americans? Streetjustice90 01:12, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Well, how do the citizens of United Provinces of the Netherlands call themselves? That may help you to find the answer. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 213.137.120.11 (talk • contribs)
Wait, wouldn't it make a lot of sense for French people to call themselves Europeans, since they.. you know... are? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 138.69.160.1 (talk • contribs)

(year late reply) in French, you can be called United Statesians. No one does it, cept those that don't like Americans. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 207.179.172.220 (talk • contribs)

Calling the United Statians "Americans" is like calling British to the English. They ARE British, but they are not the only ones. In fact, USA has no name if you think about it. --SC 21:39, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

durr... this is wierd. We are the only country with the word "America" in our name. Why are popele confused by us calling ourselves "Americans?"

-P.S. England can suck my bloody balls. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.98.106.64 (talk • contribs)

  • SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU RETARD AMERICAN ENGLAND SHOULD BE RULING UNITED STATES NOT BEING TOLD BY UR SHITY GOVEMENT THAT WE SHOULD GO TO WAR WITH THE MIDDLE EAST FUCKHEAD. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 172.142.57.66 (talk • contribs)

DURRRR, what a retard. ITS CAUSE the USA isnt the only country in the TWO CONTINENTS with AMERICA in its name... thats why french people, or anyone else in european, calling themselves just "europeans" wouldbe silly, cause theyre not the only nationality in europe DURRRRR how about thinkin a bit before makin stuppid comments like that. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 78.3.52.37 (talk • contribs)

As usual, the United Statian sees nothing beyond his country. The word "America" belongs to the continent (the whole western hemisphere), and not just the US. Which means that everyone is American from Canada to Chile. Your country is called United States and its people are (or should be more frequently) called United Statians. --SC 04:13, 7 July 2007 (UTC)
That's what I've been saying to everybody I know, but they think I'm a lunatic!
That's a nice thought but no one calls us "United Statians" and no one ever will. By the way, Latin American countries refer to people from the States specifically as "norteamericanos", which translates to North Americans. We're not the only ones describing ourselves using a general term. 69.255.49.139 04:16, 8 September 2007 (UTC)
Estadounidense, norteamericanos, gringos, yankees... whatever! The thing is that I hate that northamericans are called americans. I'm allergic to that word. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 190.40.72.137 (talk • contribs)
P.S. England hasn't been into incest since the conception of the States. Or shortly thereafter, but whatever. Ж Cake-eating Cave Monkey or was it a giant monster or a robot? 00:57, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
Yeah but you sure as hell have been into Pedophillia and Homosexuality, personally I hate both of you, but then again Im just a Communist, you damn elitists, also this article is pretty anti-american, Id rewrite it if I cared. Comrade Z 00:56, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
It's common practice for residents of a nation-state to refer to themselves by its final name. After all, how many people say The United Mexican States? Or he Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela? How many people, when asked, say they are from "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland?" Probably a few more than one would expect, but all those who do are pompous asses. My point is, language is defined by usage, and since the US was the first country in North America do successfully gain independence it wins the title of "America" by the time honored tradition of "first come first serve".
Not really. Because America is America. And America is the ENTIRE western continent.--SC 01:49, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Article needs a rewrite

I believe uncyclopedia should have a more satyrical approach to comedy, this article sounds like an anti american preschooler calling america "a bunch of fatties", someone rewrite this. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pwn3d3001 (talk • contribs)

I agree with the cleanup but LEAVE the "reincorporated" bit alone. It's class and you know it. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 87.114.134.205 (talk • contribs)

This isn't funny at all and is full of stupid 7 year old boy-esque British insults not in usual Uncyclopedia-funny ways. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 76.183.208.237 (talk • contribs)

Deleting the British Takeover part and inserting a list of things in America

This article sucks, nobody wants to read about some stupid british taking over. That's why I'm putting in a list of things in America. Agreed, though, this article needs a serious rewrite. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Xela267 (talk • contribs)

Actually that's one of the best things on uncyclopedia, taking that out would be criminal. Take it out and it's going straight back in again, that bit's class and it made me laugh. I'll be saving that to my computer so it doesn't get changed. I'd rather read that article than read a list of random things in America. I'm sure there'll be lots of imagination in your little article, with points like "your mom" and "the Eiffel Tower" being inserted.
Please, leave this quality article where it is. It's original and I'll be putting it back in, again and again, every day until you give up. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 87.114.134.205 (talk • contribs)

FUCK AMERICA

Fuck America! FUCK°!!!°!°!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUCK America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The preceding unsigned comment was added by 134.176.204.150 (talk • contribs)

You make an interesting point. It's subtle, yet profound. Oh, and go back to grade school. Sentences need a subject and a verb. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 67.166.241.196 (talk • contribs)

I wrote the reincorporated article and even I don't like what he's saying. America isn't bad really, please calm down. - Tom H. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 87.114.134.205 (talk • contribs)

Substandard quality

I find it extremely un-funny. There is no invention, no concept, nothing to be excited about. it's moreless just random rant. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kamamura (talk • contribs)

I don't know who should be more offended by this article: Americans or comedians . . . The preceding unsigned comment was added by 76.78.16.179 (talk • contribs)

No need to fear. A rewrite is in the works. --THE 22:08, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

That's because this article is about a substandard country.

Hey there!

I thought I'd be the first to try and make something of this dying article. Help would be much appreciated! Ive put a WIP box in for now. Jebend 19:26, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Summoned Skull!

WTF is up with that ? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 218.186.12.11 (talk • contribs)

WTF

America is a fucking continent, not a country. USA is just one of the countries of America. Stop thinking you're the center of the world already. 201.212.44.26 02:19, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Above comment

The United States of America is the center of the fucking world. don't be an idiot. (America: saving Europe's ass since 1914) The preceding unsigned comment was added by Trid (talk • contribs)

How bout actually leaving the country for once, dipshit. oh, and, europe: FOUNDER OF AMERICA The preceding unsigned comment was added by 78.0.175.207 (talk • contribs)

Who's doing this?

i keep on re writing the stupid parts, but people keep coming and putting back what was there before. are you fascist? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Trid (talk • contribs)

okay, almost done.

Only the history of America is left to do. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Trid (talk • contribs)

Razorflame

In the spirit of being American, i wont delete your list of stuff. i just added mine. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Trid (talk • contribs)

Jesus Christ with a stick!!

This article isn't funny. It's a rant by Anti-American Assholes, or Anti-American Traitors. If you're gonna be an ass, be a funny ass. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Trid (talk • contribs)

Bring back the original contents

The article used to be 100000000000000000000000000000 times funnier when it was making fun of the country - supercontinent jumble. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 213.137.120.130 (talk • contribs)

British Takeover Section, part II

I'm pretty sure that that entire section's been lifted from somewhere else. Can anyone confirm/deny this? —Hinoa talk.kun 05:51, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

It seems very similar to this forum post, which I assume is a poor man's referencing John Cleese's "Declaration of Revocation" essay. MadMax 00:00, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Fact which Americans are sure to consider as vandalism

(because Americans can't speak English.)

..just a joke - no offence meant. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.143.168.128 (talk • contribs)

adding an Oscar Wilde quote?

“America is just a big fat lesbian.”
~ Oscar Wilde

I think this should be added to the top of the page.
