    They are cupcakes, I don`t see how that absolves any feelings of guilt.

    I`ve visited many parts of England and everyone there is disgusting. Everywhere I went they were eating KFC and McDonalds. It`s like they took the worst part of America and made is their only source of food. Then America gets targeted as the fatty because it`s where the food originated. I can`t other states of America aren`t fat but in Maryland where I live the 75% majority is at the standard weight for health and another 20% is anorexic or underweight. I`m not big on conflict and debating and hate getting passionate but logging in to IAB everyday to see America getting ridiculed is ridiculous because it`s not true. People arguing about religion and politics is great because both opinions can be valid but in this instance it`s not and the people that administrate the site are trolls themselves that like all this drama I guess so people comment more. I liked this community a lot more years back.

    gatorade, I take comfort in knowing that everyone`s BMI states that they are in fact, obese. Not every post is about fat americans anyways. It looks like we get more stupid posts when fancy is gone. He is back anyways, so maybe he will rein the others in a bit :)

    Other than that, take a chill pill. I don`t freak at every thing I see here and I see a lot of offensive material here. I also see the same thing in my work place and social life. That`s just me though.

    @ chunky:

    that`s NOT what he`s saying. he`s saying that in HIS AREA, people mostly seem to be of a healthy weight. and he`s also tired of seeing America get bashed all the time for being the "fat country" when a lot of other nations have obesity issues as well.

    On the other hand, Japan is always bashed for being sexually perverse, so it`s really six of one, half a dozen of the other.

    Anyone else thinking the whole "fat american" shtick is getting old? I think so. Seems every other day we get at least one of these. I am bored with it, and I thought that this place was here to alleviate my boredom.

    As far as the picture itself...well it looks pretty neat. Don`t think I would eat it though.

    "Am I the only one getting sick of the posts about how Americans are all fat...?"

    I think they discriminate equally though. We see a lot of "Japan is crazy" "America is fat" "Rednecks are... rednecky" "Gangstas are ghetto".

    jeez dude, get a sense of humour. Americans are fat, the English have bad teeth, the French are cheese eating surrender monkeys and us Scots run around the hills in kilts all day hunting haggis and getting pissed. These are called hilarious stereotypes and are there to amuse. If it`s not to your taste then bugger off someplace else for your jollies and shut yer fat gob ;) (that wink was for everyone with a sense of humour, not you. You don`t deserve my winks)

    @PinkandGreen: This is true, but I am still bored with it. I think it has been overplayed. Especially when you take an innocent thing like a few neatly done cupcakes and turn it into a big ole f-u to americans by adding a stupid tagline.

    I don`t mind the whole thing really, but at the very least make the tagline relevant to the content. I mean, who knows, maybe the cupcakes were made in japan, or england. There is nothing in that picture that points to America.

    I think it`s funny that when a caption says, "Yet another creepy Japanese commercial," or, "This one`s definitely Japan," we all jump on the band wagon and start talking about how screwed up Japan is, because, I mean, obviously all of Japan is all creepy and all screwed up. As soon as the fat American stereotype pops up, all the sudden it`s dumb and unfunny and IAB needs to stop making fun of something that doesn`t apply to everyone in the nation.

    If you are insulted by the "fat American" stereotype, then you are probably a fat American. Remember, if you are insulted by something on the internet, its your fault, no one else`s. Its not funny because its true, its funny because people think its true. That`s the point of making stereotypical remarks, its satire and you should f*cking get used to it. I am a scrawny-*ss white boy American and I think its hilarious, if a bit overused. Just like LOLcats.

    Ok, I really need to know. Animosity for the nation aside, how many people actually subscribe to the idea of america as a nation of fatasses, as opposed to those who just make jokes in good fun? Is this merely a well established stereotype akin to the English having bad teeth, or do people actually think we can only fit six people to a subway car?

    I really don`t get bothered by offensive either. I`m more angry by the fact that this site used to have tons of funny stuff and now its overrun with the same stupid jokes appealing to the same demographics. Since I`m 18 and 140lbs I`m not offended and if you guys want to think america is fat thats great, but can we move on and not see the same thing everyday. I didnt realize someone was filling for Fancy so im relieved and will shut up. For everyone else that seriously thinks America as sterotypically being fat come visit the many areas and stop having an arguement in which you`re ignorant

    Whoa there is some freaky posting glitches going on right now. Have to try this again.
    I notice the more new stories that are published that point out that England and Australia and pretty much every where on the globe, has more obese adults than the US now or is just as bad, the more internet trolls talk about "Fat Americans" as if they can keep saying it and people won`t notice that their own country is pretty much full of big fat cows.
    Most adults in England are now overweight, and one in five is obese
    Australia beats US to title of most obese nation, report finds

    Wow gatorade 75% of maryland is normal healthy weight and 20% are anorexic... so you are claiming only 5% of the population is obese because i`ve just done a little research and the average obesity levels in the USA are 66% ish. Is the whole state in a famine zone or are you just full of crap.

    P.S you really need to get a few more doctors because if 20% of your population have annorexia you have a serious f-ing problem

    P.P.S Get a sense of humour while you are out getting the doctors, i hope we never see you jump on a bandwagon (as im sure you never do) or somebody might accuse you of being a hypocrite

    For all you know, he might really be a French woman. Then you`d look silly quoting figures for England and applying them to the whole of Europe, wouldn`t you? And anyway, the UK is getting very fat. We KNOW this. We just aren`t up you your exacting standards of obesity yet. But cheer up, we`ll try to put a bit of extra effort in over the next week and hopefully get back to you with better results next time, chubby.

    All joking aside though, it`s sad what`s happened to the pacific islanders since we `civilised` them with our modern ways and processed foods. Obesity levels have absolutely soared to the point that something like 90%+ of all adults are clinically obese. Possibly one of the last thing these people REALLY needed was a McDonalds? Maybe better healthcare and education would have been a better concept to introduce?

    I am a Yank but I have a six pack and I am 38. Most people my age and even younger think that it is a given that they will have fat. People are not active enough and eat too much crap. The additives we put into our foods is sickening. High fructose corn syrup is the main culprit. There have been studies that have established a direct link between HFCS and the obesity epidemic. It`s in bread, soda, ketchup, almost anything that uses sugar in the US substitutes for the cheaper syrup. The gov`t doesn`t care because the use of the corn derivative helps to keep the farm industry going. Just try to import pure sugar and see what taxes you get slammed with. I`d eat one of these cupcakes made with real sugar, I assume, before I`d drink a coke.

    Screw sense of self deprecation, in my mind it isn`t about that. Merely reading the link sets me on edge, it needlessly goes much farther than labeling americans as fat. I imagine somebody saying this sort of thing to my face would say it aggressively, would punctuate the last word with a good amount of spittle and an unfriendly sneer, maybe spit on my shoes.
    It does not have the tone or feel of a joke where past (and I`m sure future) links may have. If he next "Japan is screwy" link were to have the same tone, people would be not be amused.

    The problem isn`t that people are making fun of Americans, the problem is that there are far too many people who buy into the stereotypes and choose to base their prejudices off of them.

    It`s funny when someone makes a clever post, but too often people respond with a sincere, "This is why I hate Americans." It`s one thing to joke about stereotypes like how African-Americans like watermelon and kool-aid, it`s another thing to serve it and only it to a black friend when you invite them over for dinner based on a sincere belief that that is what they want.

    On the other hand I do think someone else made a good point about how we`re basically guilty of doing the same things with Japan`s eccentricity.

    `The problem isn`t that people are making fun of Americans, the problem is that there are far too many people who buy into the stereotypes and choose to base their prejudices off of them. `

    I don`t agree with people justifying and basing their prejudices on stereotypes either, but it does seem in this case that many Americans are happy to do just that and go along with the `joke` when it`s in regards to other countries, but as soon as the table`s turned they get incredibly defensive and outraged. Which isn`t to say all Americans are like that, of course they aren`t, but the reaction to this post has been pretty telling for everyone outside the US who also sees the responses to all the other `insert vaguely offensive national stereotype here` posts on IAB (often in regards to their own country, which are generally taken in stride, disregarding the small number who are always determined to be offended).
    That`s just how it appears to me.

    I think the problem with this particular post is that the fat American joke seems kind of random and tacked on for no reason, although admittedly most of the posts at IAB have some sort of stereotype randomly tacked on to the description for laughs.

    Anyways, my point is that with most other national stereotypes, no one actually buys into it. Very, very few of the American IABers here actually think that France is comprised solely of wussies, or that the English really do all have bad teeth, but when someone posts an American stereotype it seems like half of the comments from Europeans are about how much this makes them hate Americans, or such.

    Clearly there are a good number of Europeans who are buying into the stereotypes, and, by there own words, "hate" Americans for them. And that`s what`s really aggravating.
