“I’m from here *points to arbitrary point on hand*”
~Every Michigan resident
At this point, you likely are familiar with the setup here. The American States of America takes each and every state, one by one, and tells you their most American quality. Some states are great at drinking. Some are great at inventing fatty foods. We’re pretty sure one of them leads the nation in motorcycle-riding-obese-Dwarfs per capita. We don’t know what state that is, but we want to go there right the fuck now. But until then, we’ll just focus on the things that make the following American states so damn American.
“Jack Thompson is a douchetard”
The America Fun Fact of the Day office takes pride in showing the best and brightest of America. When our readers see these tales of past and present heroes, we like to think they strive to be better Americans, to grab life by the horns, go down swinging, and various other clichés. Early bird gets the worm. Whatever.
And while it’s easy to look at shining beacons of American hope, we often overlook the sinkholes in our society. Unfortunately, for every Abraham Lincoln, there is a John Wileks Booth. For every FDR, there’s a Snookie. For every Jack Kerouac, there is a hungover America Fun Fact of the Day writer making a cheap Jersey Shore joke that will read as gibberish in five years. To truly see our own greatness, we have to see how we, as a nation, deal with punk ass idiots.
Jack Thompson is one of those punk ass idiots.
