Now this came as a surprise!

You Are 14% American
You're as American as Key Lime Tofu Pie
Otherwise known as un-American!
You belong in Cairo or Paris...
Get out fast - before you end up in Gitmo!

Be more surprised if I scored more than Cheri on this one! :-)

(And in my defence - I really didn't understand some of the questions!)

PS - I really must credit Joe Steadman with this. He's stuck in Korea somewhere and is 80% American. Again I'm stuck trying to work out which bit isn't American, is it a bit of leg? And if it's not American what is it? Is it French or Irish or Columbian? I'm surprised to be 14% American based mainly on my previous understanding that I'm 50% English and 50% Scottish. That there is some American in there might be something I should discuss with my mother at some stage - or maybe Cheri, Brad Pitt's sex advisor can help?

19 careful considerations:

Not sure how I got to be 23% American.

Wendy said...

You Are 71% American

Most times you are proud to be an American.
Though sometimes the good ole US of A makes you cringe
Still, you know there's no place better suited to be your home.
You love your freedom and no one's going to take it away from you!

Nogbad, I didn't understand all the questions either.

Nogbad said...

So now I'm worried about two of you! Kat - 23%??? How on earth did that happen? And Wendy!!! I'm guessing you weren't threatened with Gitmo (is that like a Chinese Burn or is it a small Japanese car or something?)

Wendy said...

Gitmo is the prison where the US military and Govt. house Afghan and Iraqi prisoners and interrogate them indefinately. It's shorthand for Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It's a naval base. The upset by the Hippies is the detainees rights are being infringed upon. Timely trial, hope of release, charges upon them, unsavory interrogation tactics...all that US Rights stuff.

If you were being satirical, ignore me.

I was 20% American and that worried me.

pal said...

I'm not owning up to 36% then! And just what is Nascar? A sucker punch, some form of strong Pimms perhaps?

America: You don't love it or want to leave it.
But you wouldn't mind giving it an extreme make over.
On the 4th of July, you'll fly a freak flag instead...
And give Uncle Sam a sucker punch!

Angel! said...

I'm 36% American, loll.

I'd like to add that I am an American as for Canada is too a part of America! That way of thinking might explain the result...

pal said...

Well I'm firmly in the UK which is not as close to the US as Canada so geographical proximity doesn't apply to my result :-(

Maybe I'm as much as 36% because they have my photo and fingerprints?

You Are 58% American

Most times you are proud to be an American.
Though sometimes the good ole US of A makes you cringe
Still, you know there's no place better suited to be your home.
You love your freedom and no one's going to take it away from you!

same as Wendy but a lower %

at least I'm more american than NOG!! where did you guys see Gitmo? Was is a question I missed on the test?

Nogbad said...

Gitmo is where I'm being sent if I don't "Get out fast" according to my result. Bit worried that you are only just over 50% though Cheri - are you sure you wouldn't be better off over here with us Brits? :-)

ScaryCheri said...

I think your on to something only delema is I can't put my dogs and cats in a 6 month quarantine!

If I could get by that I'd be all into moving out of the

Don't get me wrong, I love my red white and blue, but there's so much world out there to see!!

Squid Vicious said...

91% American, y'all!
You're as American as red meat and shooting ranges. Tough and independent, you think big.
You love everything about the US, wrong or right. And anyone who criticizes your home better not do it in front of you!
That's right, I was raised on Dukes of Hazard. I like guns, bombs, and beer. In fact, I'm gonna call up the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms and thank them for the great party theme!

Nogbad said...

Well you are always welcome in Britain Cheri - but we already have dogs and cats here :-)

Gracious me squid - you guys have a government department to provide the booze and smokes? Now that's what I call organized!

ScaryCheri said...

lol...yeah I can see it now...a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms drive through window to place your order

Nogbad said...

Wow! So you could pop to BK (or Carl's Junior - they are my all time favourites!) for a burger and then the next window to grab a six pack and some smokes! Not sure about the guns, me being a wishy-washy liberal and all that, but if you guys need to shoot each other to finish a Saturday night out then that's cool by me - whatever blows your hair back!

Lil Sis said...

How come I get to be 82% American??
Both the parents have some explainig to do:-))

Nothing to do with trashy murder books or previous study....

Nogbad said...

Well you can have conversations with people if you want explanations - I ain't going there! :-)

I'd have to say that the difference in results points to nurture rather than nature so the trashy novels and previous study might be to blame after all H.
