Mmm, its very annoying. Although, its not just America but Americans are one of the main people on sites liek this one so they are often the people we are talking to, therefore the ones who say it.

I'm american and I don't think that either. I've never even heard of digeridoo? And I hate how when people hate something americans say or do...they don't realize there are tons of other countries that do it too.

Wait!! are u saying that itæs not true!?! o.o

I don't think they actually think that. I have yet to come across an American who thinks I live in an igloo with a pet beaver (I'm Canadian). I think when Americans (or anyone from any country) put stuff like that in movies or whatever, it's supposed to be humorous, not taken seriously.

i dont think you guys no wat i mean so dw :P and i dont think canadians are like that, partially coz my uncle and aunty live over there and i have seen fotos of their canadian house. and yer they mean it seriously

I hope you realize you're only talking to a small minority of dumbass Americans. Most of us aren't that ignorant.

It is true that A LOT of Americans sterotype Australians as being bogans. Just because you may not be included in the magority of people who do steroptype, doesn't mean that you have to completely deny the concept. It happens, so just get over it; Briannah is right and your not.
P.S. I assume that more than half the American population believes that us Australians all say 'Gidday Mate!', have pet kangaroos and wear cork hats where ever we go. Thankfully, we are more civilised than that

I'm Australian, and I know most people don't stereotype Australia. It's kinda our fault, because of publising things like Crocodile Dundee and Steve Irwin.
