I've noticed lately that we Americans don't have a leg to stand on when it comes to raising our children, running salons, and owning successful restaurants. That's why we rely on mean, outspoken, potty-mouthed, sharply dressed British people to come and whip us into shape. You know who I'm talking about:
(To be fair, Supernanny does NOT have a potty mouth, and I really like her. But still, she is a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is type like the other two).
Honestly, what has happened to us? After all our founding fathers sacrificed to get us some freedom from these people, we are just welcoming them with open arms to come into our homes and places of business and boss us around. And who are THEY? Just because they have accents does NOT make them any smarter than us. Didn't we establish this back in 1776? So what if we Americans want to spank our children, refuse to listen to our clients' hair requests, and serve leftovers at our restaurants? That's our right. We claimed it when we declared independence.
Let's take back our tv! Let's dump that English shampoo into the Boston harbor! Let's take those chore charts from Supernanny and burn them! Let's tell Gordon Ramsey to take his fancy mushroom truffles and shove 'em someplace where the sun don't shine! Let's tell them that they can't tread on the sacred right of Americans to ruin their kids' lives, cut ugly hair, and serve mediocre food. Because we're Americans, and that's what we like to do.
