I was inspired to create this thread by this article:

Butts Charged with Stealing Toilet Paper

Only in America would a woman (appropriately named) steal toilet paper from a courthouse bathroom.

Please, everyone, contribute your examples. Might want to stray from the obvious, like creationism, George W Bush, Paris Hilton, Waffle House, and the like. :)

Oh, here's another one. Only In America:

Oops, wrong apartment. Sorry... NOT!

Waffle Houses are badass. They have really good breakfast. I want to open one near my college. Do you realize how many drunk students would go to it after the bars closed to eat breakfast. LOTS! The cost of running and maintaining those small piece of shit shacks wouldn't be much compared to other restaurants.

There's a saying: One never leaves for the evening with the intent of arriving at Waffle House. One simply ends up there.

I agree, at three in the morning, there's no better place for a ham & cheese omelet with hash browns cooked one of 844,000 ways. Then there's the jukebox, with old C&W hits like, "I Met Her In the Waffle House"

However, it is still truly an American invention, something that qualifies as, "Only in America".

Anything you order at the Waffle House can only be described as a heart attack on a plate.

Still, the bacon/steak sandwich is pretty tasty. The hash browns are horrid. I always make them put paper towels on my plate to soak up the grease and then blot them with napkins. Then, and if they are cooked really crisp, they are pretty good. Why I can't make any of the cooks understand that I don't want them fried in gallons of oil or butter is beyond me.

And why is it called the Waffle House anyway? There is only one waffle and it is tasteless and nearly always served cold. Of course, once you put the required amount of butter on it and drown it in syrup, who cares?

Maybe I should give it a try in the wee hours of the morning.

True story- a couple of years ago Hurricane Ivan blew through town. Everything closed down in advance of its coming. Everything but the Waffle House. By gum, those intrepid enough to go out in 110 mph winds for their daily infusion of grease were able to!

This is just wrong.


You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.

"This humongous burger, listed on the pub's menu as Ye Olde 96er, sells for $23.95 and contains a full six pounds of meat plus three pounds of trimmings: two whole tomatoes, a half-head of lettuce, twelve slices of American cheese, a full cup of peppers, two whole onions, and "a river of mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard" according to pub owner Dennis Liegey."

One man's strawman is another man's asshole.

Dude, I did a shoot this past week at a festival - the Marines were there, with two Hummers all painted up. Funny, one of those hummers was at "Club 10" all night. ;)

They don't let teens into Club 10... you have to be 21 in Florida to be a stripper.

What? Here in NC, stripclub row is half-a-block from the high school so the girls without licenses can walk to work.

Man, that's pretty lax, you need at least a 36C in Vegas.
