“Hell yes I can jump over a car”
45% of America
Look at you, America. You’re glorious. When Blake Griffin won the slam dunk contest by jumping over a (unfortunately foreign made) car, the good old folks at ESPN decided to ask the question everyone was asking. Could you, average American Joe, do the same thing as a 6 foot 10 inch tall professional athlete? Well, 45% of us, or the 45% most American Americans out there, hear that question and think, “Hell, we’d jump over the damn roof.”
And look at Idaho, Delaware, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island over there. A majority of the Americans there think they can jump over the hood of a goddamn car. And there’s something damn special about that.
So America, as you go about your day, look at the nearest car, and at least allow yourself a moment to think….can I jump that fucker? Because once you blindly assume you can, even when you can’t, then you’ll know you’re truly American.
