America is kind of like a teenage girl. Americans can talk bad about the country, but if anyone else does it, shit is going down. It's like a girl posting a picture on Facebook with the caption "OMG, I'm sooo ugly!". No one is supposed to comment saying, "Yeah, you really are.", amirite?

I always thought it was funny that America would trash literally every other country, but as soon as a country makes fun of them, they cry about it and get all defensive.

So yeah, your teenage girl simile works perfectly.

That's a general rule for any country or person , though. You can talk bad about your country or sibling all you want, but you're not going to happy when someone else does it.

Hyperbole my friend. And those are jokes. Many people make jokes that they don't believe are true. Jokes=Good, Ignorant Bashing=Bad

Whenever someone puts a caption like that on fb (rarely, I choose my friends wisely) I always comment "Are you going fishing?" (fishing for compliments, that is)

Very true. I complain about America, but I'll defend it if someone just starts bashing it. Same with my school. I only care if someone seems like they're serious about it.
